There aren’t many preseason games that have more hype surrounding them than the one between the Eagles and the Patriots. New England is expected to have troubles offensively this year without all of those great receivers, but in the end, this is all about the City of Brotherly Love. Head Coach Chip Kelly brings a new promise to the table for winning football in Philly, and he is going to bring that high octane offense that he ran at Oregon to the NFL. Many are figuring that this is going to be the key to a high-scoring win for Philadelphia, but we just aren’t all that sure. Yes, QB Michael Vick is going to get some reps, and yes, QB Nick Foles is going to get some too, and yes, QB Matt Barkley is going to be making his very highly anticipated debut. Still though, this is a preseason game, and it is going to look as such. We have a really hard time believing that there are going to be at least five touchdowns in this game, as that’s what it will probably take to get this one to the ‘total’, and even that might not totally be enough when push comes to shove. There are going to be flaws in the Philly offense in the end, and we expect that there are going to be enough of those flaws early on in the preseason to keep scores a lot lower than the oddsmakers are expecting.

Patriots @ Eagles Pick: Under 40.5
Patriots @ Eagles Score Prediction: Philadelphia 20 – New England 17
