Getting guys back 

The Eagles will still be without DeSean Jackson (abdomen) on Thursday night, but they will get Alshon Jeffery (calf) back and that's huge. That means J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, after a disappointing showing in the last two games, will head to the bench. It'll be Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins on the field when the Eagles go to 11 personnel. And Dallas Goedert (calf) is supposedly healthier five days after he played just nine snaps in the loss to the Lions. Getting back another whole personnel package is huge. 

And on defense, Kamu Grugier-Hill (knee), will make his season debut. He might be eased back into action, but he is one of their top linebackers and that unit has struggled without him. 

The quick turnaround

The road team on Thursday Night Football is usually at a disadvantage and the Eagles are no different. The Eagles lost to the Lions on Sunday and then had to travel to Green Bay to face an undefeated Packers team. That's not an easy ask. But Doug Pederson is 4-0 on Thursday nights, including last year's season opener. He seems to have a knack for getting his guys ready to play on a short week. 

Eliminating mistakes 

The Eagles should have beaten the Lions, but they dropped passes, fumbled the ball, took bad penalties and gave up a kick return touchdown. They can't afford those types of mistakes against the Packers. Starting the season with a 1-3 record wouldn't completely kill the Eagles but it would be a big hole to climb out of. In the modern era, just 11.1 percent of teams that start 1-3 make the playoffs. That number jumps to 37.2 percent for teams that start 2-2.
