The Eagles D/ST allowed 20 points to Chicago in Week 15, compiling six sacks and recovering a fumble as Philadelphia pushed their league-leading record to 13-1.
Fantasy Impact: The Eagles’ defense was tasked with slowing down the most elusive QB in the NFL on Sunday, and they did just enough to squeak out the tight win. Justin Fields did his part, equating for two touchdowns and still nearly topping 100 rushing yards, but the Eagles’ front-seven helped themselves out with some timely sacks and plays late in the second half. The Philly defense has quietly compiled 19 sacks over their past three games and will be a fine option in the fantasy championship rounds in what could be an interdivisional slugfest with Dallas next week.
