Packers vs. Eagles, Week 4 2019: First half game updates & discussion

The short week is over, and it’s about time for Thursday Night Football to kick off.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers Green Bay Press-Gazette-USA TODAY Sports

Short week? Hopefully that will be no problem for the Green Bay Packers.

Coming off a victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday to move to 3-0, the Packers got to remain at home for a short four-day week. This evening, they welcome the Philadelphia Eagles into Lambeau Field for Thursday Night Football.

The Packers have basically all of their key players available tonight. Edge rusher and defensive captain Za’Darius Smith is in the lineup, a good sign for the Packers’ defense as a whole. Smith showed up on the injury report on Tuesday with a knee issue, but he is active for the game and will start.

The Eagles will be missing two defensive starters in cornerback Ronald Darby and defensive lineman Tim Jernigan, leaving the Packers with some advantageous matchups when Green Bay has the football.

Tune in to see if the Packers can move to 4-0 in tonight’s game!
