The Philadelphia Eagles will take on the New York Jets in NFL Week 5 Sunday game. Eagles will have the advantage of playing in their home ground at Lincoln Financial Field Stadium, Philadelphia. It will be tough for the Jets who are having their worst NFL season so far where they lost all the three games they played so far.
NFL 2019 season is also not kind to the Eagles, where they lost two games continuously and have a lot of injured players. But the Eagles can still easily win in the Eagles vs Jets game and here are the match predictions and betting odds.
Jets are Nothing without Sam Darnold
The Eagles defeated the Green Bay Packers in an amazing over the road victory. Meanwhile, the Jets lost their last game with a 16 points difference at the hands of New England Patriots. New York Jets are yet to win a single game in 2019 NFL season and the main reason is that they are missing out on their starting quarterback Sam Darnold.

I can’t believe there are #Jets fans angry at the team because they feel “misled” about the chances of Darnold playing vs the Eagles.
Your HC was straight with you all week. Jets were hopeful their franchise QB would play after a bye. You wanted them to hype up Falk for 2 weeks?

The Jets star is out for the first few weeks due to mono disease and it might be too late before Darnold makes a comeback. Luke Falk is nowhere close to Carson Wentz and has only a passer rating of 68 percent. The Jets are one of the worst teams in terms of passing yards in the air and have only an average of 131 yards and the Eagles could easily beat that.
Eagles vs Jets Predictions
The Philadelphia Eagles are currently 14 point favorites in the Eagles vs Jets Sunday game starting at 1 pm. The over/under for total points scored is around 43.5 and there are chances it can go higher. The Eagles have beaten the Jets in their last 5 games and have been covering the spread most of the times against the AFC East teams.
The only thing which could make it interesting is that the Eagles have a worst defensive line and has given 24 or more points in all the 2019 NFL season games. But given the Jets have no steam in their offensive line, the Eagles winning the game is imminent.
