NFL odds and lines, Chargers vs. Eagles

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

One of these teams was able to pull off an upset in Week 1, while the other blew a 21-point lead to a heavy AFC favorite. How big of an underdog is San Diego in Week 2?

The Chargers and Eagles both have head coaches that made their NFL debut last week. One of them upset the reigning division champions on the road, while the other blew a game that his team had a 99-percent chance of winning. Which of these teams will come out on top this Sunday at the Linc in Philadelphia?

OddsShark.com has the Eagles as 9-point favorites over the Chargers. The over/under is set at 54.4 points.

Chip Kelly led the Eagles to a 33-27 upset over the Redskins at FedEx Field, leading many to believe that Philadelphia could be in line for a quick turnaround. Michael Vick threw for 203 yards and two touchdowns, while scoring another touchdown on the ground, and LeSean McCoy had 184 yards rushing and a score of his own. Can they repeat those performances against San Diego?

The Chargers defense did not do a lot to prove they could stop an offense when it matters.

After taking a 28-7 lead against the Houston Texans in Week 1, Mike McCoy's Chargers had a 99-percent win probability in the third quarter. That quickly fell apart after their offense failed to gain a first down on any of their final five drives of the game, as the Texans came back to win 31-28.

Which team will prevail on Sunday at 1 PM EST? The odds are heavily in favor of Kelly's Eagles.
