Story: The last time these 2 teams played there was a parade 2 days later down Broad Street ending with “Hungry Dogs run faster!”. I spent that day going from bar to bar that I frequent, painted as The Philly Sports Guy doing Eagles chants and singing the fight song, ending at my brothers house to watch with my family the Eagles win their first Super Bowl Championship. Amazed at the 4th and Goal “Philly Philly” call that will forever live in bronze at the Linc. My jeans were just about ripped off as I went to celebrate with everyone on Mac Dade Boulevard and makeup was smeared from crying over this Eagles win. The oncoming flu that came prohibited me from attending the parade, however I had a fantastic seat to watch all the festivities and the most epic celebratory speech I have ever heard by Jason Kelce. I will never forget the feeling of jubilation once the Hail Mary fell incomplete, and the eruption of millions of Eagles fans around the world. WORLD CHAMPIONS! I am sure it is something that every living Eagles fan will never forget!
Ridiculous Tom Brady Facts:
(1) Tom has 3 receptions throughout his career. His longest reception was for 36 yards vs the Eagles. He has only been targeted once in all his playoff appearances, again against the Eagles in Super Bowl 52. We all know how that turned out.
(2) Tom has 68 yards rushing against the Eagles in 4 regular season games played. That averages to 17 yards per game. The only double digit yards he has against any team. The next closest team is the Jaguars at 9.3 yards per game.
(3) Tom has lost more games in November (17) than in any other month.
(4) Tom has been sacked more times (41) and has been intercepted more (14) by NFC East teams than any other NFC division.

Current Line: Eagles +3.5 O/U 44.5 ML Eagles +160

Prediction: This is going to be a tough game all the way around. Can it be called a revenge game for the Patriots? I don’t think so. They are the reigning Super Bowl champs in the most boring Super Bowl ever played, so even if they want to use that as fodder to get up for this game I don’t believe it. Belichek is a good enough coach that I don’t think he needs to use such nonsense to motivate his team. This game will be decided by the defenses. Since the return of the Eagles CB’s they have gone from last in the league to 16th. Jalen Mills, Maddox, and even Darby have done a much better job against the most recent opponents. This game is going to be won in the trenches. Our scheme against Brady must have him nervous about getting hit. We will have to play tight coverage and blitz early to get Brady off his game. Consequently, this is another game where we must run between the tackles. The Pats D is good. 1st in total yards, points and 3rd down conversion, and 2nd against the pass, but only 11th against the run and teams get away from that game plan because they are typically behind. This can not be one of those games where we get away from the run. It needs to be a heavy dose of Howard and Sanders running north-south. If the Eagles are able to stick with that game plan and control the ball, we will win this game.

Bills have won 3 of 4 vs Eagles in Buffalo
Bills have won 5 of 7 regular season games in Buffalo
Bills have held opponents to 17 points or fewer in 7 of 9 regular season games

Story: I do not have a story about the Bills vs the Eagles, however that will change as I will be in Buffalo supporting our BIRDS and looking for a huge bounce back from the previous 2 road games. I look for our Defense to make a couple of huge plays and we break this 2-game snide.

Current Line: Buffalo -1.5 Over/Under 43

Prediction: An inspired Eagles team starts to put the pieces back together led by the Defense and Special Teams. The Offense will have some trouble with the Bills 3rd ranked defense and ultimately it will be the short field that does in the Bills. Score: Eagles 19 Bills 11

Story: My story revolves around a playoff game but not the NFC Championship. January 16, 2005, I am out with friends Joe and Karen and Karen’s parents at a place called Champs (now PJ Whelihan’s) getting ready to watch the game. The bar is very quiet (which is not my scene), and Karen turns to me and says, “Jamie, you are being very quiet. Are you ok?” I respond, “It’s quiet in here. I am not sure what to say.” Joe turns to me and says, “What do you mean? Just say whatever!” I respond, “Ok. E A G L E S EAGLES!” as loudly as I can. Next thing I know, the owner of the bar comes over with a round of beers and tells us he was hoping someone would do that! Every time the Eagles scored they would bring the microphone over and I would lead everyone in the fight song, I was interviewed and in the local paper the following day, and of course the Eagles won 27-14 on their way to going to Super Bowl XXXIX. It was a good day that day! I look to have the same thing happen this Sunday!

Current Line: Vikings –3 O/U 44

Prediction: I think this will be a close game. If it comes down to who has the ball last I hope the defense has a huge stop. If we have the ball, I have no doubt Carson will lead his first ever game winning drive. Eagles 28 Vikings 23


Eagles Vs Jets - Tale Of The Tape

Eagles vs Jets – Tale of the Tape

All Time Series (10 Meetings): Eagles lead 10-0
All Time Score: Eagles 271 Jets 171

1st Game (Dec 9, 1973): Eagles 24 Jets 23
Last Game (Sept 27, 2015): Eagles 24 Jets 17

Jets have lost 7 of 8 games on the road
Jets have lost 3 consecutive years coming off the bye week

Current Line: Eagles -14 Over/Under 43.5

Story: Largest Lead ever held by the Jets (21 points)

Although the Eagles have won all 10 meetings against the Jets, on October 3, 1993, (my 1st game that I was able to watch once out of the Navy) the Jets jumped out to a 21-0 lead by 3 minutes into the 2nd quarter led by Jets QB Boomer Esiason. Although (NFL Offensive Player of the Month in September) Randall Cunningham started the game, he was hurt in the game (fractured leg, lost for the season) and on came back up Bubby Brister. By the beginning of the 4th quarter the Eagles had tied it up at 28. After a 3 and out by the Jets, a good punt had the Eagles pinned on the 1 yard line. The next play from scrimmage, Bubby Brister went back to pass and to avoid the rush threw the ball away from inside the end zone. The call was Intentional Grounding in the End Zone and a Safety awarded to the Jets. The ensuing drive had Boomer bringing the Jets down the field to the Eagle 10. The next pass for Boomer would be picked off by Eric Allen and returned 94 yards for a touchdown. That score would be the game winner keeping the Eagles undefeated at 4-0.
Final Score: Eagles 35 Jets 30

The Philly Sports Guy Prediction: Eagles 31 Jets 9

Eagles Vs Packers - Tale Of The Tape

Eagles vs Packers – Tale of the Tape

All Time Series (43 Meetings): Packers lead 27-16

Most Notable Game (Dec 26, 1960): 1960 NFL Championship Eagles 17 Packers 13

All Time Playoff (3 Meetings): Eagles lead 2-1

Trends: Packers have won last 2 meeting and 5 of last 6
Eagles are 5-17 at Lambeau and have been outscored 531-358
Eagles have won 3 in a row on Thursday Night Football (2 on the road)
Packers are 6-2 on TNF all wins coming against Division opponents
Packers are 5-0 at home on TNF

Story: Lambeau Field and Green Bay is a nice place to visit. The people there are friendly and the area around the stadium is full of things to do. The field is like going to a high school football game and if it’s cold, you better bring a cushion, because the bleachers are cold, and packed to the gills. That all being said, we won the game last time I was there 27-13. It has been a tough week for the Birds, dealing with the public and the media discussing the drops from Sunday, but I expect that will charge this team to prove that they are a Super Bowl contending team. Green Bay is 3rd from last in the NFC in points scored, and have let up close to 400 yards rushing in 3 games. The Eagles way to win, run the ball! Ground and pound and keep Rodgers on the bench.

Prediction: Eagles 23 Packers 14

Story: Last time I was in Atlanta for a game was Monday Night Football (9/12/2005). During warm-ups before the game there was a little scuffle between a backup Special Teams player for Atlanta and Jeremiah Trotter. Both were ejected from the game. Atlanta won the game 14-10. Fans in that stadium are soft and did not cheer very much. There will be a large amount of Eagles fans at this game, including a good friend Ebon Markale Flagg. He will make sure to bring home an Eagles win! Go Birds!
