Both teams possess tremendous running games, a quality pass rush, and top-flight receivers, but yet, are extremely different.
PHI: Nick Foles has played wildly inconsistent, both leading potent scoring drives, but also making critical mistakes at the worst times.
HOU: Ryan Fitzpatrick takes a safe tack when he plays, checking down and deferring heavily to the running game, but he will take deep risks in instances.
PHI: LeSean McCoy is getting back on the right track picking up yards in bunches; the explosive Darren Sproles could be activated for this game.
HOU: Arian Foster boasts six 100-yard performances in seven games this season, behind a consistent line that opens holes through the middle.
PHI: Jeremy Maclin is in the midst of his best season, with 632 yards and six scores; Riley Cooper is finally coming around with big downfield catches after a slow start.
HOU: Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins each boast over 500 receiving yards, and their sure-handedness keeps Fitzpatrick's simple drives going.
PHI: Zach Ertz continues to develop into a reliable mid-range target, making great catches to sustain drives; Brent Celek is handy as both a stay-home blocker and open-field receiver.
HOU: Garrett Graham, Ryan Griffin, and C.J. Fiedorowicz have combined for 16 catches and 152 yards, while serving as below-average blockers.
PHI: Only seven sacks allowed in seven games (though Foles does force throws), while Jason Peters and Lane Johnson serve well in the run. Jason Kelce will return this week.
HOU: Middle run-blocking behind Chris Myers is a gem, as it is around tackles Derek Newton and Duane Brown, but the pass protection allows too much pressure.
PHI: A tremendous run stopping crew bolstered by Fletcher Cox and Cedric Thornton, the group also includes the pass-rushing explosiveness of Vinny Curry.
HOU: They have J.J. Watt.
PHI: Generally strong pass-rushing from Connor Barwin and Trent Cole, complimented by the run-stopping instincts of veteran DeMeco Ryans and a mending Mychal Kendricks
HOU: Whitney Mercilus and Brooks Reed are capable run-defenders with 23 stops between them, but struggle in pass coverage; Jadeveon Clowney looks for his niche.
PHI: Gives up the big play (as seen Sunday), but can generally cover the edges with tight protection; Brandon Boykin is imperfect but a stifling middle presence nonetheless.
HOU: Fifteen touchdown passes allowed against seven interceptions belies a Jekyll-and-Hyde group that makes nearly as many big plays as they give up.
PHI: Cody Parkey booted a 54-yard field goal, the second longest in team history; Donnie Jones remains a strong punter with the best coverage unit he's ever had around him.
HOU: Randy Bullock has a pair of boots from beyond 50 yards on the season; Shane Lechler's ably replaced Jones in Houston, averaging 47.6 yards a punt.
