Week 21: vs New England Patriots
FBG says: Good matchup. Nick Foles has been a roller coaster this season as he looked extremely shaky heading into the playoffs but ultimately has been tremendous in the playoffs as he has completed over 75% of his passes in each of his two playoff games. The reason for this is that the Eagles have simplified the offense and have focused on shorter higher percentage passes to Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, and the running backs in Corey Clement and Jay Ajayi. The Eagles have moved away from Nelson Agholor who was a primary receiver with Carson Wentz but has largely been a non-factor with Nick Foles outside of going back to his slot receiving role that he had last season. The Patriots secondary has been one that has struggled for most of the year as they allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks as they allowed 270 yards per game and 1.5 touchdowns per game. These numbers are a little bit skewed as teams who are behind ultimately are going to be forced to throw more, but the Patriots secondary is one that is not great as Eric Rowe out of the slot and Malcolm Butler have both struggled this season. The one area that the Patriots have been very strong at this season is against the tight end which could cause issues for the Eagles as they will likely rely on Zach Ertz in this game, but the Patriots create game plans to take the tight end out of the game as they did with Travis Kelce, Jared Cook, the Chargers tight ends, Charles Clay, Delanie Walker. They held all of these tight ends to under 50 yards as Patrick Chung and Devin McCourty have done a great job as linebackers matching up against these tight ends.

Nate Sudfeld played the role of a game manager in this game as he methodically moved the Eagles down the field in this game. Sudfeld looked calm and collected and did not let the tough conditions bother him as he went through his progressions on his reads and checked the ball down when he needed to without trying to force anything downfield as his longest completion of the day was just 16 yards. Sudfeld did show athleticism in this game as he was able to scramble for 22 yards on a play that he should have been sacked as the pocket broke down, he stepped up and found a lane juking defenders and got to the sideline for a 22-yard gain.
