The Philadelphia Eagles heading to Denver to take on the Broncos should be a pure offensive showcase, not to mention one of the most interesting games of NFL Week 4. Chip Kelly’s fast-paced offense hasn’t led QB Michael Vick and the rest of the Eagles to a winning record, but it’s sure led to some padded stats. Meanwhile, Denver QB Peyton Manning has already set season-opening records, and his Broncos have an undefeated record going into today’s 4:25pm Eastern / 1:25pm Pacific kickoff on FOX. If you can’t catch the game on live, it’s almost required that you watch Eagles vs Broncos online live streaming for free using the links below.
The Denver Broncos are the odds-on favorite in today’s game, which shouldn’t be surprising considering Denver’s the hottest team in the NFL. The Broncos have the league’s highest-scoring offense, and their 127 total points scored through three games are 31 points more than any other team this season has scored during the same period. What’s more, quarterback Peyton Manning has thrown more touchdowns (12) than 29 teams have scored in total.
Still, Michael Vick leading the Philly offense gives hope to the Eagles as they head into Denver’s Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Some have questioned whether the offense instilled by Eagles rookie head coach Chip Kelly can maintain its torrid pace at that altitude. The Eagles have the NFL’s second-ranked offense — behind only the Denver Broncos — and they’ve managed that productivity in large part because of their pace. So, the altitude question is warranted. But if you watch Eagles vs Broncos online live streaming for free, you probably won’t see the Philly offense let up. In fact, Eagles coach Kelly himself has said “A lot of it is more mental than physical.”
As the two highest-rated offenses square off today, the game might actually be won on defense, which is where the altitude might come into play. In fact, ESPN’s Jeff Legwold actually said this week “It’s all well and good to be fast on offense, snapping the ball at light speed, but those 45-second possessions that end in a three-and-out are just about the worst thing for any defense that just got to the sideline.”
To be fair, the defenses for both teams would be working hard regardless, considering the offenses that each team will be facing. While the Broncos and Eagles offenses are ranked 1-2 in the NFL, their defenses are ranked 20th and 30th, respectively. Translation: while you watch Eagles vs Broncos online live streaming for free or on FOX TV, you’re bound to see a shootout.
Broncos QB Peyton Manning should have a heyday against the Eagles secondary, which is giving up 323 yards in the air every game, and against a defense that’s allowing 438 total yards. Eagles QB Michael Vick should also deliver, since the Broncos defense allows 327 yards passing, although the Eagles’ spread option may run into some trouble against Denver’s stingy rushing defense that allows just 43 yards per game on the ground.
The moral of the story: this afternoon’s 4:25 Eastern / 1:25 Pacific game between Philadelphia and Denver is easily the NFL’s game to watch this afternoon. FOX will be carrying the game live on TV, and you can watch Eagles vs Broncos online live streaming for free by going to gameday-live.com, signing into the NFL Network’s online streaming service using your Cox, Dish or Verizon account info, or heading over to DirecTV and sign-up for their NFL Sunday Ticket package. Again, the game on TV is scheduled for a 4:25pm Eastern / 1:25pm Pacific kickoff on FOX.
