Look for Eagles to stay unbeaten

Posted: Friday, September 24, 2004

Philadelphia opened with two impressive home wins, establishing its credentials as the contender its fans thought it would be.

After the past three seasons, 8-8 or 9-7 would be a successful year in Detroit. It would be a disaster in Philadelphia.

EAGLES, 24-17

Green Bay (plus 6) at Indianapolis

Brett Favre vs. Peyton Manning for just the second time: They met in Green Bay four years ago and Favre won 26-24.

MANNING, 26-24

Dallas (plus 2) at Washington (Monday night)

Bill Parcells is 11-6 against Joe Gibbs, winning 11 of the last 14 meetings.

COWBOYS, 11-6

Tampa Bay (plus 3) at Oakland

Oakland East has yet to score a TD on offense.

Warren Sapp's revenge.

RAIDERS, 10-6

Pittsburgh (plus 1) at Miami

A rookie QB for Pittsburgh, a dismal offense for Miami. Unless there are defensive TDs ...

DOLPHINS, 5-3

Jacksonville (plus 6) at Tennessee

The Jaguars have managed to win twice despite scoring just 20 points.

TITANS, 17-6

San Francisco (plus 11) at Seattle

Seattle was 8-0 at home last year, but the 49ers play defense well enough to keep it close.

SEAHAWKS, 20-13

Baltimore (minus 3) at Cincinnati

Carson Palmer played cautiously last week but still led a game-winning drive.

Reprise.

BENGALS, 16-13

Chicago (plus 9 1/2) at Minnesota

Tough to win back-to-back in Green Bay and Minneapolis, especially with three top DBs gone.

VIKINGS, 27-10

Houston (plus 8 1/2) at Kansas City

Neither team is what it was supposed to be, but the Chiefs were supposed to be better than the Texans.

CHIEFS, 26-13

Cleveland (plus 3) at New York Giants

Kellen Winslow's injury spoiled a Hurricanes' reunion with Jeremy Shockey.

GIANTS, 23-15

San Diego (plus 10) at Denver

From 1-0 to 1-15? The Chargers aren't that bad, but ...

BRONCOS, 34-20

Arizona (plus 10) at Atlanta

Dennis Green made the playoffs eight of his 10 seasons in Minnesota.

That doesn't happen in Arizona.

FALCONS, 33-11

New Orleans (plus 7) at St. Louis

Early season travails again for the Saints.

RAMS, 32-14

LAST WEEK: 11-5 (spread), 13-3 (straight up)

SEASON: 20-12 (spread), 25-7 (straight up)
