Poor Earl Wolff. The rookie Eagles safety gets to make his first NFL start against Peyton Manning and the Broncos' high-octane offense. This should go well.
Historically, Manning has torched the Eagles defense. In four career match-ups against Philadelphia, Manning has thrown for over 1,000 yards and eight touchdowns, with a passer rating of 103.7.
Overall, he's 3-1 in those games, and his teams have outscored the Eagles 148-77. And those were against good (and great) defenses.
Here's the breakdown:
Nov. 7, 2010 - Eagles 26, Colts 24
Nov. 26, 2006 - Colts 45, Eagles 21
Nov. 10, 2002 - Colts 35, Eagles 13
Nov. 21, 1999 - Colts 44, Eagles 17
Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies...
