Ezekiel Elliott Will Eat With Eagles Best Run Defender Out

    The have one of the best front sevens in the NFL when it comes to stopping the , but they will have to step up their game this week against the league's leading rusher, .

    To make things even more difficult for the Eagles defensive front, they will be without their best run defender, .

    With Logan out of the game, the Eagles will likely have to rely on the 6'3″, 330 pound third year , Beau Allen. Allen is a former teammate of 's at Wisconsin and has played a similar number of snaps to Logan, so there might not be much of a drop off.

    likes to use that Wide-9 alignment with his defensive ends, so they rely heavily on those big bodies in the middle to stop the running game. That is where Bennie Logan and Beau Allen are relied upon the most.

    Cowboys Headlines - Ezekiel Elliott Will Eat With Eagles Best Run Defender OutElliott is leading the NFL with 703 rushing yards through eight weeks and has averaged at least 130 yards on the ground in the last four games. He should be really close to making it five weeks in a row of rushing for at least 130 yards Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Bennie Logan's absence isn't the only reason I believe Elliott will have success in the running game. is expected to make his way back on the field after being sidelined with a small fracture in his knee.

    With Bryant back on the field, the Eagles will have to devote extra attention to covering him in the , and that means they can't stack the box like teams have been doing in the running game against the Cowboys.

    As you can see, with Bryant's return, Logan's absence, and the Wide-9 defensive alignment for the Eagles, things are shaping up for Ezekiel Elliott to eat in the prime time matchup between the division rival Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys.

    Do you think Ezekiel Elliott will eat against the Philadelphia Eagles?
