LYNCH: PHILLY OFFENSE NEEDS SUCCESSFUL RUNNING GAME – NFL on FOX analyst John Lynch is calling Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday on FOX and when talking about the Eagles offense, Lynch believes it’s not only the turnovers that are troublesome for the Eagles. “A lot of it is a function of the offensive line and their struggles. At times, the Eagles need eight-man protections to keep Michael Vick alive off play action. And it’s not as if they’re calling play action because they’ve been running it so effectively. These eight-man protections only leave two-man wide receiver routes and are usually met with four defensive players in the backfield,” said Lynch. The answer for the Eagles offense is not only the offensive line but successfully utilizing their running back LeSean McCoy. “LeSean McCoy is the guy they need to feed the ball to more and he’s got a great compliment in the back field in rookie running back Bryce Brown. If calling play action is going to work for the Eagles, their running game needs to be respected.”
And the NFL previews will end with a look at NBC’s Sunday Night Football for Week 8.
