All four teams have tough games outside of their time zones, playing teams in both the NFC West and the AFC West. This isn’t a strict apples-to-apples comparison, of course, because trips to places such as Denver and L.A. are shorter for the Cowboys than they are for Dallas’ East Coast rivals, but the flip side is that all of Dallas’ division road games are outside of their time zone.
The Eagles don’t leave their time zone again until Week 11, when they go to Dallas coming off a bye. And their remaining two West Coast trips are at Seattle and at the Rams in consecutive weeks, which means they can stay out there instead of crisscrossing the country an extra time. Of the four NFC East teams, the Eagles have the fewest outside-the-time-zone games remaining. Plus, they’re 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the division. This doesn’t necessarily stamp this young team and its impressive young quarterback as a favorite, but it does put the Eagles in a strong position to potentially take advantage if the other teams struggle with their travel.
That hit was flagged, though Trevathan remained in the game, and the Packers scored on the very next play following an injury delay as Adams was taken off the field strapped to a backboard. Adams was able to give the Lambeau crowd a thumbs up and was moving his extremities on the way to a local hospital.
“It’s tough. He’s a great teammate and a great friend of mine. I’m hopeful we’ll get some good news,” Rodgers said of Adams’ injury during an interview with NFL Cheap Jerseys To Design Network. “Tough shot to see, see your buddy get knocked out on the ground like that.”
After scoring on their opening series — Rodgers capping a 10-play, 75-yard Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Online drive with a 5-yard pass to Adams — the Packers capitalized on a turnover forced by Clay Matthews.
