Our first word of advice in this game is to forget about the ‘over’. We know that both of these teams have combined to account for nearly 1,000 yards of offense per game, and we know that they are both capable of scoring not just in the 30s, but in the 40s if these two defenses aren’t playing stellar ball. However, this 58 is a ridiculous number that should just be ignored. It’s a total trap line, as the oddsmakers are trying to guilt you into taking the ‘over’, but the ‘under’ just has no justification to it. As far as the game itself, we love the matchup for the Eagles. Philly is going to head up to that thin air in Mile High and try to run the Broncos down. Denver has a slew of injuries coming into this game on both sides of the ball, and for as good as this offense is, this defense has been shoddy all year long and has surrendered at least 20 points to each of its foes. This one will probably be no exception either.
What we really like though, is the amount of time off that Philly has to prepare for this game. You’re not figuring out how to slow down QB Peyton Manning all of these receivers with two months of preparation let alone 10 days, but 10 days is a lot better than six days for sure. Remember too, that Denver played on Monday Night Football last week, and though it isn’t going to be subjected to the traveling, it is going to still have to get ready for Head Coach Chip Kelly’s assault on very little rest as well. If the Broncos haven’t been preparing for this one for the last two weeks, they could be in some trouble, and we think that this game very well could end in an upset.
