Philadelphia will have two extra days after an 18-18 tie against Cleveland last Thursday, and Indianapolis beat Chicago 24-17 two days later. The Eagles survived agaisnt the Browns even while being sacked six times, although Tanner McKee still threw for 147 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions. Marcus Mariota didn't fare as well completing 9 of 17 for 86 yards with no TDs and a pick. The Eagle defense allowed only 3.3 yards per carry and although the Browns had 289 passing yards they got into the end zone just once and that was a TD pass from Kellen Mond. The Colts are 1-1 and they went with Sam Ehlinger and Gardner Minshew against the Bears and they combined for 22 of 29 for 220 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions. Rookie QB Anthony Richardson did not play, but he will start this game and likely will play a full quarter for Indianapolis. The teams had a physical joint practice this week that ended in a massive brawl, giving the Eagles some more motivation as the home underdog and the defense a chance to tee off on the Colts' rookie QB. Take the Eagles and the UNDER.
