Its 8am Sunday Morning and the Philadelphia Eagles are up to 15 point favorites and growing from I believer 13. The Eagles are 2-2 coming off an upset win in Green bay with 10 days rest while the Jets are 0-3 coming off a bye week with question marks everywhere.
Eagles Offense vs Jets Defense
Despite some bad 1st half football in more than a few games this year the Eagles offense is averaging 27.5 PPG. The Jets defense is pretty solid for the most part but eventually will cave today. Greg Williams will use Jamal Adams to disguise coverages and try to confuse Carson Wentz. That could work once even twice but after that the Eagles will figure it out and move the ball up and down the field. CJ Mosley is doubtful so I don’t see any way the Jets can stop the bird’s offense today.
Eagles Defense vs Jets Offense
The injuries and ineptitude of the secondary is a problem. The defensive line continues to get credit for “almost” sacks which drives me crazy. I mean we get it but stop acting as if this is the same as making the play. With all that said, the New York Jets offensive line is terrible and their starting quarterback is Luke Falk so I see no real concern for this week. Le’Veon Bell may get one but outside of that its field goals and missed field goals for the Jets. I predict 5 sacks today!
Special Teams Myles Sanders had a huge return last week and as he learns can continue to improve field position for this offense. The Jets kicking game will be busy with field goals. Maybe they go in maybe they don’t but either way won’t impact the game in a major way.
Prediction I have changed my final score from the Edge of Philly show on Thursday Night slightly. Eagles 34 Jets 16
