The 2013 New England Patriots overachieved this season, but they couldn’t overcome a powerful Denver Broncos squad in the AFC Championship Game.
Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos and Richard Sherman’s Seattle Seahawks were the NFL’s best all season, so it’s fitting that they’ll meet in the Super Bowl.
Both Patriots Nation and Broncos Country are looking forward to Brady/Manning XV. The rest of the planet will probably enjoy the game, too.
Peyton Manning set a multitude of NFL records this season, but one may be taken away by the NFL. The league and their official statisticians are currently reviewing a play that could mean a loss of one record.
The Eagles are keepers of a well-publicized ten game losing streak at Lincoln Financial Field. It’s been over a calendar year since the Eagles won a home game. Oddsmakers say that’s likely to change.
There have only been five teams in the league you can count on for survival. And I mean really count on. They rarely make you sweat, and when they do it’s only a temporary perspiration until they regain control of the game. These teams are the Broncos, Chiefs, Patriots, Seahawks and Saints.
For five weeks I’ve been walking on eggshells around the NFL schedule trying to avoid the landmine game that would blow me out of the 94WIP Suicide Pool.
You laugh now, but there was a time, very recently, when it was a debate. There was a time, when we thought the kid had commandeered the throne. There was a time when, when we thought it was the dawn of one empire, and the dusk of another.
Eagles players were heard yelling ‘Papa John’s,” prior to Manning snapping the ball during the Broncos 52-20 win. Manning is featured in Papa John’s commercials, and owns several franchise locations of the pizza delivery restaurant.
Chip Kelly didn’t have to see his team through a whole lot of losing streaks as head coach of the University of Oregon. Just four games into his NFL career, he’s already got a three-game losing streak to deal with.
The bad news is each loss seems to have gotten worse by the week for the Philadelphia Eagles. The good news is it cannot get much worse than their 52-20 loss against the Denver Broncos. Can it?
I remember the second half of last season, it was almost impossible to do this column every week. This was because it was almost impossible to find anyone on the Eagles to give a “gold star” to. This week feels like one of those weeks.
The 1-2 Eagles are 11 point underdogs this Sunday as the head to Denver to take on Peyton Manning and the 3-0 Broncos.
The Eagles will need to have a stable offense capable of providing protection to quarterback Michael Vick and clearing running lanes for running back LeSean McCoy. The offensive line will be critical for the Eagles.
This moment was coming. It was only a matter of time. Some might have hoped it wouldn’t arrive as early as week 4, but it’s here. The Philadelphia Eagles are on the wrong side of the largest spread of the weekend, and (spoiler alert) my Best Bet for Survival pick.
