5.) Jalen Hurts is sacked 3+ times

When you think of the Eagles’ offensive line, the mindset is usually that they are a unit who can dominate the line of scrimmage. For the past couple of seasons, they have established themselves as one of, if not the best unit in the league. However, there is a kryptonite as of right now. Jalen Hurts has been sacked 27 times this season, including being sacked two or more times in each game since Week 6. 

The Bills are coming into this game with 39 sacks, with edge rusher Leonard Floyd leading the team with 9.5 sacks. Buffalo has been able to create a pass rush this season within their rotation and one of those guys that has had a stellar year is A.J. Epenesa, who is competing for a contract after this season. He currently has 6.5 sacks on the season.

Maybe this is not such a bold prediction, but the Eagles’ offensive line is still one of the best, if not the best offensive line unit in the league. The x-factor for the Bills to reach this goal is by creating interior pressure by Ed Oliver to allow Floyd, Greg Rousseau, and Epenesa to get to Hurts.
