Two last-season defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Eagles were 15th worst when it came to rushing touchdowns allowed last year, with the squad giving up 30 overall (bottom 89%). The Golden Flashes experienced some rushing struggles of their own as they ranked fourth worst in the nation with respect to rushing yards allowed per game last year, where the team gave up 244.7 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
