The Philadelphia Eagles just came off a victory over the New York Giants, but can they pull off an upset against the New England Patriots? Vince Young will likely be under center to do it.
The Philadelphia Eagles don't want to go down without a fight, especially when Michael Vick isn't playing. Vince Young played poorly for most the game against the New York Giants before turning it on late in the game to deliver a 17-10 victory. But not even that will help them all that much against the New England Patriots on Sunday. The Patriots opened as four-point road favorites, according to Odds Shark. A later line has moved the game to just three points in favor of the Patriots.
The Eagles appear ready to play again without Vick, which means Young gets another chance to prove he is able to lead the team to another victory. But the over/under for this game hasn't been set yet. Tom Brady does lead the No. 2 passing attack in the league, so the Patriots might not find it hard to score points. However, the Patriots do allow 300 passing yards per game, making this a potentially high-scoring game.
