Eagles Look To Play Spoilers In Week 16
No one could have expected that the Philadelphia Eagles would have had such a terrible second half to the season. After starting out with a 3-1 record, the team fell relatively quickly into obscurity, losing almost every game since then.
They are currently at a 4-10 record with no chance of making the playoffs. They do have a chance of playing the spoiler to a long hated division rival in the Washington Redskins this coming week, however, which should make them decent picks as it pertains to the NFL odds.
With Michael Vick currently out and the rest of the team playing at the lowest level imaginable, it is hard to think of the Philadelphia Eagles playing any better than terrible. However, divisional match ups have a weird effect on teams which leads me to believe that they have a good chance of upsetting the Washington Redskins this week at home.
While the Eagles gain nothing by the win as it pertains to going to the playoffs, they can get bragging rights in the division by beating a team that has been a thorn in the side of everyone in the league this year. With the team they currently have, they will need all the pieces to fall into place for them to have a chance, but it is possible. Luckily for the team, Robert Griffin III is questionable for the game, which gives them the best possible chance to to get the win this coming Sunday.
When it comes to good NFL picks this coming week, the Philadelphia Eagles are not at the top of the list but may they may be a decent one in the end. They have a four point handicap on the Washington Redskins and have something to prove at home.
It just looks to be their day.
