Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Jets NFL Pick Week 13 – December 5

Following a disappointing loss for the 5-7 Philadelphia Eagles last week, they’ll return to the same stadium in Week 13, this time to do battle with the lowly New York Jets.

After a lot of hype surrounding Jalen Hurts and the resurgent Eagles, the Giants last week frustrated them offensively. In the process, Hurts ended up a tad injured and remains highly doubtful for Sunday’s clash. If Hurts can’t start for Philly it’s believed that former Jaguars’ QB Gardner Minshew will be under centre – representing quite the downgrade.

The Jets meanwhile enter at 3-8, coming off of a rare victory last time out vs. Houston. Though Zach Wilson has been pretty underwhelming thus far in his rookie campaign, he’ll again be starting for Robert Saleh’s side. New York possesses a decent defense and some big-time playmakers, but getting them the ball has proven problematic. Against a playoff-hungry foe in Philadelphia, you better believe that the Jets will be keen on spoiling the party on Sunday.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Jets Prediction

Although Jalen Hurts is expected to be out, it’s not necessarily a huge downgrade. Minshew’s style is admittedly quite different, but it is one that should help Philadelphia move the chains. The Jets have struggled to generate pressure and have also been iffy at times on deep passing coverage. Minshew is a better and more accurate thrower than Hurts, and though Minshew doesn’t have the legs, his arm could do damage in Week 13.

Meanwhile, the Jets can’t counter and have struggled in matchups when they’re down early. Without Michael Carter this is a questionable rushing offense, and it’ll put added pressure on rookie Zach Wilson to make plays. It’s only been a few starts, though we’ve seen by now how he has struggled when asked to do too much with his arm. Wilson is prone to errors and turnovers, and he has been poor at reading blitz packages especially.

With Minshew healthy and eager to prove his worth once again, there seems to be some real value on Philadelphia. The downgrade isn’t warranted, and with the Jets’ inconsistencies on both sides of the football, the Eagles are well-suited to take advantage. Although Philadelphia did drop last week’s clash in awful fashion to the Giants, the Eagles still do have a shot at the post-season, and their motivation levels will likely be much higher from here on out.

Eagles vs. Jets Trends To Know:

  • Eagles are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS loss.
  • Jets are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win.
  • Jets are 1-6 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
  • Over is 23-7 in Eagles last 30 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
  • Eagles are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings vs. the Jets.
  • Favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings between these two teams.

Under Nick Sirianni, the Eagles have bounced back well from defeats, and last week vs. the New York Giants was certainly a tough one.  The trends point to a Philly rebound here, and Minshew’s locker room popularity will surely rally his crew.  Expect the Jets’ secondary to get carved in this contest, en route to a convincing Eagles’ victory, as they look to get back to .500.
