Week 21: at Philadelphia Eagles

All RB vs PHI

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Patriots head into this game with having three straight tough rushing matchups and from a rushing standpoint the first two games have all been similar. Dion Lewis has led the rushing attack, but in reality, they are utilizing the passing game more than the rushing game to move the ball down the field as Lewis has just 24 carries over the last two games. Rex Burkhead returned from injury last game but appears to be in somewhat of a doghouse after cutting Tom Brady's hand as he only had one carry and saw very little action which continued James White playing on third downs. White who has just seven carries in the last two weeks has found himself more of a role in the passing game than the running game this playoff. At the end of the day, look for the Patriots to utilize the passing game to exploit the Eagles defense this week. The Eagles defense continues to be one of the best rushing defense in the leagues as their front four is as good as they come in the NFL with Vinny Curry, Timmy Jernigan, Fletcher Cox, and Brandon Graham. This is a defense that will be relied upon for most of this game similar to what they have been relied upon for most of the playoffs. This is a defense that is the best in terms of DVOA and allowed the fewest yards per game to opponents at 79.2 yards per game this season. Over the last two games, the Eagles have shown a few cracks as they struggled to change of pace running back Tevin Coleman (7.9 yards per carry) and Jerick Mckinnon (4.0 yards per carry). They have struggled with running backs who can get out wide as free safety Rodney McLeod has struggled in run defense this season. Where the Eagles have dominated is that they have been incredibly strong with runs up the middle as they completely shut down Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman.
