When the 2013 NFL schedule was released, a week ten showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers, looks liked a matchup that would draw pretty good ratings. Not only were two almost annually premier NFC teams playing, but two big name quarterbacks (Michael Vick and Aaron Rodgers) were scheduled to square off for the first time since Rodgers’ Packers edged out Vick’s Eagles 21-16 in the 2011 NFC Wild Card Round playoffs, en route to a Superbowl title for the Packers. Now that we are actually in week ten, it doesn’t look like that re-match is ever going to happen.
Michael Vick will miss yet another game as he continues to try to rehab an injured hamstring, and likely won’t start another game for the Eagles given how well Nick Foles has performed in his absence.
Aaron Rodgers, while in no risk of losing his starting quarterback job, will also miss the game. Rodgers suffered a partially torn collarbone last Monday in the first quarter of what went on to be a loss against the Chicago Bears. The Packers don’t have the luxury of having a good backup like Foles though, as they will ride with veteran clipboard holder Seneca Wallace.
So the Eagles have Aaron Rodgers out of the way. But, as our Eagles writer Mike Lacy points out, going into Lambeau Field and getting a win against a resurgent Packers defense, is not going to be an easy task.
