Can the Philadelphia Eagles recover from last week's loss to the Seattle Seahawks by defeating the Miami Dolphins, a team that pulled off the upset against the Oakland Raiders last week.
The Philadelphia Eagles shouldn't be under any illusions after losing to the Seattle Seahawks last Thursday, 31-14. They are an underachieving team with or without Michael Vick as the starting quarterback. At 4-8, the best the team can hope for is a .500 record. They'll face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday as three point underdogs on the road, according to Odds Shark.
The Eagles might have their hands full when they take on the Dolphins. Since the first weekend of November, Miami has gone 4-1. That lone loss was 20-19 decision against the Dallas Cowboys. The Dolphins are the 4-8 team that looks to have brighter days ahead down the stretch of the season.
Will the Dolphins and the Eagles be able to combine for a score of 44-45.5 points? The Dolphins have scored 30 or more points in three of their four wins while the Eagles have cracked 20-plus points twice since the bye week on Oct. 23.
