The Philadelphia Eagles travel down to Florida to take on a frustrated Jacksonville Jaguars team September 26th. The Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid has done a flip flop and is starting Michael Vick this weekend over Kevin Kolb who has been cleared to play after a concussion. This could be the best case scenario for Kolb who has not looked sharp in the preseason.
Passing Attack of Philadelphia Eagles & Jacksonville Jaguars Will Both Adjust
Michael Vick is the most exciting quarterback to possibly ever play the game. This is quite a statement but in the end it may be very true. He won’t be the most accurate. He won’t be the most prolific passer but he will have been the most exciting. Vick can simply do things no other quarterback could possibly do and then he can pass on top of that. Don’t expect Vick to be dinking short out route passes in this gamefor the Philadelphia Eagles, he will be going up top to his speedy receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Macklin.
David Gerard had an embarrassing performance on the road against the San Diego Chargers and he should perform better in this contest but it won’t be enough. The Philadelphia Eagles defense has been embarrassed to this point and they will be coming at Gerrard full force in this game. Gerrard is a quarterback that takes the hit and does not panic but he will take some sacks in this game against a defense with something to prove. Passing attack edge goes to the Philadelphia Eagles over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Running Games for Both Philadelphia Eagles & Jacksonville Jaguars Solid
Maurice Jones-Drew is a one man machine for the Jacksonville Jaguars but the Philadelphia Eagles have an answer for Jones-Drew. Stewart Bradley suffered a concussion in the first week of the NFL season and has been cleared to play in this game. Bradley is the middle linebacker an chief run stuffer for the Philadelphia Eagles and he will only have eyes for Maurice Jones-Drew.
Across the field, LeSean McCoy has come into his own and is starting to make Philadelphia Eagles fans forget about Brian Westbrook. McCoy is similar to Westbrook in that he is a double threat out of the backfield. McCoy rushed for three touchdowns and 120 yards. The Jacksonville Jaguars had no answer for the big full back on the San Diego Chargers, Mike Tolbert and McCoy can pound with the best of them. Running game edge goes to the Philadelphia Eagles over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Philadelphia Eagles -2.5 vs Jacksonville Jaguars: Pick Against the Spread & Final Look
The Las Vegas Hilton Superbook posted the Philadelphia Eagles as 2.5 point favorites over the home team Jacksonville Jaguars and the line has not moved. Michael Vick is the wild card in this game and if he can take over this game, he can be a shooting star in the NFL.
The hype on Vick if he rolls over the Jacksonville Jaguars will be ridiculous but take into account, this is the Jacksonville Jaguars. Vick will be put to the test in his first NFC East game against the Washington Redskins and former Philadelphia Eagles figure head Donovan McNabb. Take the Philadelphia Eagles -2.5 over the Jacksonville Jaguars in a two touchdown blowout on the Jaguars home field.
