Instant Reaction: Packers Rout Eagles 53-20, Score At Least 50 Points For Second Straight Game

Mark Sanchez probably won't be going out for cheesesteaks this week.

Philadelphia sputtered on offense, had no answer for Aaron Rodgers, and nosedived to a 53-20 loss at Lambeau Field.

Turning Point: 

The Eagles had their last chance to swing the momentum early in the second quarter, but they were unable to stop Green Bay from waltzing 80 yards downfield in six plays. Aaron Rodgers found Jordy Nelson for a 27-yard TD, the Packers went up 24-3, and at that point, the Eagles seemed too shell-shocked to respond.

Packers MVP:

We saw big days from Eddie Lacy, Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson, but it was Rodgers who really made the difference. This has been an entirely different team since he told Packers fans to relax on September 24 - although they were 1-2 at the time, they're 6-1 and averaging about 40 points per game since.

Eagles MVP:

Jordan Matthews played well in the loss, picking up 107 yards and and touchdown. He won't be the story this week, but Matthews has quietly emerged as a quality option for the Eagles.

Stat of the Day:

The Eagles turned the ball over four times today (two fumbles, two interceptions), while the Packers didn't cough it up once. Green Bay also had three defensive/special teams touchdowns, while the Eagles didn't have any.

What's Next?

The 7-3 Eagles will have a great opportunity to pick themselves up next week against the Tennessee Titans, while the 7-3 Packers travel to Minnesota for an important divisional matchup against the Vikings.
