The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots on Sunday and virtually NO ONE* saw it coming. After losing two straight games where they allowed a combined 90 points, the Eagles rallied on the road and managed to shock the world. Now let's laugh at all the doubters, starting with myself!
Well, about that ...
The Eagles are a bad football team right now so if/when they lose, it's probably not going to be because of poor officiating. And that's probably exactly why the NFL put these refs on this game. They know bad calls will be less magnified as the Patriots whoop the Eagles.
OK, see? It wasn't just me!
Philadelphia Eagles at New England Patriots (-9): The spread should probably be larger than this considering the Eagles have been outscored by a combined 59 points in their last two games. The Patriots are going to win this game. The only debatable part is if they will cover, and they probably will. Pick: Patriots -9
