Things aren’t looking too good overall for the Eagles. They are two games out of first place in the NFC East, and will now be facing a New Orleans Saints team that has scored 45+ points in consecutive games.
The Eagles Defensive Line has a chance to change this trend for the Eagles defense and the Saints offense, as the Saints are dealing with injury issues to four of their Offensive Linemen.
First, it has been reported that the Saints will be without their Left Tackle Terron Armstead for the game on Sunday.
The #Saints are expected to be without LT Terron Armstead for a period of roughly 3-4 weeks, source said. Armstead injured his pec during last week’s game and was replaced by Jermon Bushrod. They face the #Eagles this week.

Michael Bennet could have a big game on Sunday lined up against the back-up Left Tackle, which at the moment isn’t known for certain due to the other injuries to the Offensive Line.

In the Saints injury report that was released today, it was mentioned that Right Tackle Ryan Ramczyk, Right Guard Larry Warford, Center Max Unger, and Guard/Tackle Jermon Bushrod were all limited at practice.
The Eagles were able to get to Dak Prescott four times on Sunday night in their loss. If they want to try to turn this season around, the Defensive Line will need to take advantage of a Saints Offensive Line that is dinged and dented.
