Lost in the Green Bay Packers’ latest collapse was an injury to tight end Jimmy Graham, the team’s biggest free agent signing of 2018. The Packers have gone through quite the revolving door of tight ends in recent years, with from Jared Cook to Martellus Bennett to Graham; all of the previous signings gave Packers fans some measure of disappointment, and the hope was that Graham would be the one who would pan out.
Instead, ten games into a three-year, $30 million contract, Graham has suffered what is “feared” to be a significant injury. NFL.com’s Mike Silver used that word on Friday morning to describe the Packers’ concerns that the thumb injury Graham suffered on Thursday night in his return to Seattle may be a serious one, which suggests that he may be out for a significant amount of time.

Another week of football, and another week of our Interview with the Enemy series. This week, our friend, Brandon Gowton of Bleeding Green Nation, answers 5 quick questions about our week 11 matchup, a battle in the dome pitting the New Orleans Saints against the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles.

So what’s the deal? Is it really a Super Bowl hangover? Or is there something else (or maybe a combination of something elses) that has led to a below .500 record this late in the season?

There’s plenty of blame to share for the Eagles’ struggles this season.
Doug Pederson’s offense isn’t scoring enough; Philadelphia only ranks 21st in offensive points per game. Failing to convert in the red zone has been a problem.
Meanwhile, the defense isn’t forcing enough turnovers.
