How the Broncos match up against the Eagles

It will be the Carson Wentz vs. the Broncos defense show in Philadelphia this week.

NFL: Super Bowl 50-Carolina Panthers vs Denver Broncos Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

There is so much good information coming out of the @NFLMatchup Twitter account that it demands a weekly feature on Mile High Report. This week the Denver Broncos are squaring off against the Philadelphia Eagles and the matchups appear to be strength versus strength in this one.

The team that gives up the most ground in their strengths is the team that will likely find itself in some trouble on Sunday. Let’s take a look.

Broncos-Eagles Matchups

If you’ve noticed a constant theme in this post it was by design. The Broncos will only win this game if their defense wins their matchups. The Eagles will score points, but the path to victory is to hold them under 20. If they can do that, then the game will be close.

That is, if the offense somehow breaks out of its month-long slump under newly minted starter, Brock Osweiler.

What matchup would you consider the most important for the Broncos to win on Sunday?
