The whole Eagles offense was in a funk Week 4 against the 49ers. That stuff happens. What shouldn't be missed here is that Foles had been averaging 326 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2014 prior to the game. The Rams aren't playing nearly as well as originally predicted so a bounce-back performance from the Philadelphia gunslinger is very probable.
It is no secret that I think Cutler is overrated. With the type of talent around him, Cutler should be averaging at least 250 yards passing a contest. After putting up 349 in Week 1 against the Bills Cutler has thrown for 176, 225 and 256. Making matters worse is that for the second time this season he had thrown for 2 interceptions. Playing against the Panthers is NOT the medicine that the doctor has ordered. Bold Prediction: Cutler could place outside the top-12 this week.
