Packers-Eagles: Three keys
Saving Seneca For Seneca Wallace to be successful (even against a weak Philly secondary) the Packers will need favorable down and distance. This means picking up quality yardage on first down. So the Packers need Eddie Lacy to be effective and the offensive line needs to give Wallace time to throw.
Time of possession I'm not a big fan of this stat but it's worth noting that Philadelphia is last in the league in average time of possession at 25:07 per game. Will the Philly defense be gassed by the fourth quarter? For that to happen the Packers will need to stay on the field, so converting on third down and sustaining lengthy drives will be needed.
Defensive playmaking The stat line against Chicago told the defensive story: no interceptions, no forced fumbles and only one sack (and that came in the 1st quarter.) This is simply unacceptable for a defense that used to thrive on takeaways. While everyone wants to focus on the seven touchdowns thrown by Nick Foles last week the real number is zero, as in zero interceptions thrown by Foles this year. Here's a good spot for Green Bay to force that first Foles interception.
