James Conner may be the key to the upset efforts of the Cardinals. The running game is still a great way to control the game.

The Eagles Run Defense

The Philadelphia Eagles defense has not lived up to expectations this season. Last year, the Eagles were eight in points allowed. They have allowed 20.2 points per game.

They were pretty good against the run. Philadelphia was ranked 16th against the run. The Eagles allowed 2068 yards and 15 rushing touchdowns. They allowed 4.6 yards per carry.

This season their defense has not been great but the run defense has improved by the numbers. Philadelphia is only allowing 4.2 yards per carry. They are eighth against the run in the league.

The last five games may be showing a different trend as they have given up at least 100 yards on the ground in those games.

James Conner may be able to run for at least 70 yards and score a touchdown.
