Buffalo rallied for a 31-21 home victory over winless Miami last Sunday, with Josh Allen throwing a pair of fourth quarter touchdown passes.
Allen finished with 202 yards and two TD tosses, marking the first time in his career he has thrown for multiple touchdowns in back-to-back contests. The second-year signal-caller has also improved his accuracy over his rookie season, going from 52.8 percent to 62.4 percent. Rookie Devin Singletary made his return after missing three games with a hamstring injury and chipped in 26 yards on seven carries. The third-round pick has averaged 9.0 yards on his 17 NFL rushes.
The Eagles (3-4) are trying to salvage the last leg of a three-game road swing after back-to-back losses at Minnesota and Dallas in which their defense was rolled for 75 points and 849 yards. Philadelphia is coming off a 37-10 thrashing by the Cowboys last Sunday night in which it allowed 402 yards and struggled against both the run and the pass.
Philadelphia’s woes are not contained to the defense as Carson Wentz has failed to throw for 200 yards in three of his last four games. He finished with 191 yards vs. Cowboys and his 61.3 completion percentage is well off his 2018 mark of 69.6 percent.
The Eagles have won three of the last four meetings, including a 23-20 victory in the most recent matchup in 2015.
