At the beginning of the season, everyone and their brother had the Cowboys finishing 1st in the NFC East and the Eagles finishing most likely last. That narrative changed though. After we saw a solid outing by Philly Week 1 against the Falcons, these teams are a little closer than one would think in my eyes. The Eagles fast start was key, being able to bring in a healthy offensive and defensive front was critical, but they aren’t nearly as healthy anymore.
Fletcher Cox, a staple on the Eagles defense for years, has been dealing with an illness this week and the loss of Brandon Graham is not good at all. Not to mention, starting LT Brandon Brooks is out for the week. The Cowboys definitely are not contenders yet, but last week they captured a very resilient win. With this being said, take Dallas -3.5 or -3 if confident.
Final score prediction: Cowboys: 31 Eagles: 27 (58 points total)
Liverpool will try to extend their lead as they sit atop first place in Group B in the UEFA Champions League against Porto on Tuesday at 3 p.m EDT. Pool opened up play with a back and forth 3-2 victory over AC Milan in their first group match. Meanwhile, Porto played to an uneventful 0-0 draw against Atletico Madrid. Liverpool is playing solid right now and they are back to full strength.
The Nationals are on a 10-game road trip and started it off well winning the first 3 out of 4 games on the trip, after that, they have managed to lose their last 3 games. RHP Josiah Gray will take the mound for DC, and the right-hander struggled vs the Rockies at home last week 5 ER, 3 H, 4 BB in 5 ⅓ innings. I’m expecting the Rockies to hit the ball pretty well tonight and take down the struggling Nationals.
Can the Bears stay within striking distance against a very deep and talented Cleveland Browns team. Probably not, Rookie Quarterbacks are 0-4 so far this season against the spread. Nagy has never developed a good quarterback as the Bears HC so I doubt Field’s first start will be anything other than sub-par. Take the Browns.
WTF @ Bills U45.5 (-110)
The Bills are solid on both sides of the ball, but still another animal when it comes to offense. Going into Week 3, it is inevitable to say that the defense has played better than Josh Allen & company have on offense. As we know, Washington’s front 7 has struggled the first 2 weeks, but it’s only a matter of time until the beast awakes, and I think it will be tomorrow. Their front 7 is ELITE, to say the least. Heinicke is better than advertised as well, and has shown it multiple times in the past year. With that being said, I believe the Bills will keep WFT’s line in check. The game is supposed to be very windy, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a kick or two are offline. Ultimately, take the under.
Saints +3 (-120)
Mac Jones will be a good quarterback in the NFL for a while, but he is still a rookie. Although he is the perfect pair for the Pats & their staff, ultimately I believe he is not ready to beat anyone remotely good. I believe Sean Payton will be able to formulate a game plan to shut down the Patriots offense although Jameis is always unpredictable…. Take New Orleans +3
Titans -5.5 (-110)
If Wentz can’t play (ankle) which looks like the case, Jacob Eason or Brett Hundley will be taking snaps under center vs the Titans. We all know Vrabel is an elite NFL coach, and Derrick Henry has rushed for over 100 yards in his last 4 contests for a total of 429 yards and 4 TDs. Take the Titans -5.5.
Cardinals -7.5 (-110)
Maybe my bet of the week. The Cards were looking like arguably the most impressive and dangerous teams in Week 1. Arizona averages a high 36 points a game, and the Jaguars allow 30 a game. I think that Jacksonville made a mistake in bringing back Urban, and the ship just might start sinking soon. Expect Arizona to run away with this one. Take the Cards (-7.5)
Hachimura to miss beginning of training camp due to personal reasons
Rui Hachimura is out for the beginning of the Wizards training camp as a result of personal issues. The highly-touted Gonzaga product is going into his 3rd year in the association, averaging a respectable 13.8 points & 5.5 boards as he shot 47.8% from the field last year. With this being said, the organization is without a doubt is expecting their 2019 first round pick to pay off this upcoming NBA season. It will be interesting to see what steps Hachimura will take going forward, but I believe in this guy and I hope the personal issues resolve soon.
