Philadelphia at Seattle
Sunday 12/08 04:05 PM Eastern
4 units on Seattle +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: LOSS
Wow. Philadelphia has been the most impressive team over the last two weeks in my opinion. Losing McNabb was a major blow given how much of their offense he accounted for. To win two games without him against very good teams is incredible. They have done it with defense (giving up just 10 points per game over the last two).
Can it continue? I don’t think so with A.J. Feeley at quarterback. The Eagles managed just 10 points in his first start and the only touchdown was a defensive one!
But can Seattle score enough to win? It will be tough against this defense. But consider that the Seahawks have put up over 500 yards in each of their last two games. They won’t need to put up 30 points and if they can continue with their recent proficiency, they will score the upset.
With two big wins when they were expected to lose, and a commanding lead in their division, Philadelphia isn’t feeling much pressure to win. They still need to win to clinch home field but not this week.
Although the stats favor Philadelphia, I have trouble believing they can continue there level of play for yet another week, especially with Feeley at the helm.
