Eagles face leakiest defenses the rest of the way

The Eagles lost in Dallas, but I wouldn’t worry too much about them letting the NFC East slip away. With their closing schedule, they still look like an almost prohibitive favorite to win that division.

Philadelphia’s remaining games are against the Giants (twice), Seahawks and Cardinals. I don’t think they’re losing any of those.

With the Cowboys, they’ve got to play at Buffalo and Miami the next two weeks before closing out against the Lions and Commanders. They’re far more likely to drop a game.

Philadelphia’s remaining games are against defenses that are currently allowing an average of 2.73 touchdowns per game. That’s the most in the league, and that should help that offense close strong.

The Dolphins have the league’s hardest remaining schedule, against opponents that on average of allowing less than 1.8 touchdowns per game.

In the chart below, only traditional offensive touchdowns are shown. (Touchdowns scored on returns of kicks and turnovers aren’t included.)

For many or most fantasy leagues, the action runs through Week 17. Those playing that style of ball may prefer to see the numbers with Week 18 omitted. Eagles still appear at the top, and the Dolphins still appear at the bottom.
