Las Vegas Raiders: 3 Keys to victory against Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7
Get pressure on Jalen Hurts
When it comes to the Eagles’ offense, it revolves around their second-year starting quarterback, Jalen Hurts. Since taking over as the starter, Hurts has had an up and down start to his NFL career, but as we saw this past week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he can hurt teams with his arm and his legs.
On Sunday, the Raiders need to apply pressure to Hurts early and often, as he has struggled in the passing game so far this season. If they can negate the big plays with his legs, something the Bucs failed to do in the second half of their win against the Eagles on Thursday night, this offense is going to sputter, leading to the Raiders pulling out a much-needed victory before the bye week.
