Week 21: at Philadelphia Eagles

All WR vs PHI

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Patriots at this point are a known commodity at this point with Tom Brady. The Patriots boast a highly effective offense that can beat you in so many ways. The Patriots can beat you with their running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. This causes the Patriots to be extremely dangerous as there is no way to stop them it is only to contain them. Whether it is Dion Lewis or James White out of the background, Danny Amendola or Brandin Cooks as wide receivers or Rob Gronkowski at the tight end position. The Patriots have given Tom Brady so many options that everything is set up in their passing game. The one weakness the Patriots have is that their offensive line is banged up. Laadrian Waddle has really struggled at right tackle and Nate Solder has struggled at left tackle which could cause the Patriots issues if the Eagles are able to get pressure. The Eagles secondary is one that has improved throughout the season and a big part of that has been Jalen Mills. Mills who is a second-round draft pick struggled early on this season but has really picked his game up to go alongside Ronald Darby on the outside and Patrick Robinson out of the slot. The Patriots are going to have to try to find mismatches in this Eagles secondary and Eagles match up very well against the Patriots as Patrick Robinson is the best cornerback on the Eagles and he will be matched up against Danny Amendola who has largely been the best receiver in the playoffs this season. The Patriots may try to expose the Eagles is through the running backs as the Eagles have struggled against receiving tight ends as they allowed 6 receptions for 41 yards per game on the season which was league average in terms of points allowed to running backs on the season. The one area that the Eagles should struggle with the most in this game is with Rob Gronkowski as the Eagles have struggled against elite tight ends. Travis Kelce and Evan Engram who are the two best tight ends that the Eagles have faced both went for 80+ yards this season so if there is one weakness this is likely the weakness that the Patriots will have to take advantage of.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 17 vs NYJ (5 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)

Phillip Dorsett is a maddening player. Blessed with great deep speed, Dorsett ran by New York's corners with ease, but missed a few big play opportunities by slowing down at the top of his route. He had a long gain of 11 yards on a sideline route, but could have had so much more. It'll be interested to see how much Brady trusts him in the playoffs.

2017 Week 16 vs BUF (1 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)

Phillip Dorsett caught his lone target in the flat and flashed some agility making two defenders miss for a 24-yard gain. Dorsett was not otherwise involved the offense.

2017 Week 2 vs NO (3 / 3 / 68 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

Dorsett's big play was a 38 yard deep shot with defenders around him, as he flashed why he was a high draft pick a couple years ago. However, it also appears Dorsett may have been dealing with a minor injury, which is something to watch going forward.
