Lions

Week 5

NFL Pick

10/9/16

The Philadelphia Eagles have to be the surprise team of the season so far. They are coming off of a bye which hopefully has not put a damper on the firepower that they have displayed on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball.

While the Eagles first two wins of the season weren’t against fierce competition, they still did what they needed to do. Their third victory of the season was an absolute beat down of the AFC favored Pittsburg Steelers. That was by far the most impressive victory for any team this season.

He has only played three Games and oddly enough rookie quarterbacks of the recent past have found rookie success only to go on to disappoint, but Carson Wentz is what Eagles fans are calling their fraNChise quarterback.  He has been on fire and has been connecting with playmakers all over the field.

Wentz has yet to throw an interception and Jordan Matthews is looking like a pro bowl wide receiver. Darren Sproles has continued to build on his niche within the offense. Credit the defense though. Holding the Steelers to 3 points and controlling their other two opponents. Kudos to the Eagles so far.

Detroit is just not a good team and they haven’t been for over a decade. Marvin Jones has been really good, but that’s about the only good thing to say about the Lions right now. They’re going to lead their fans into another season of misery unless the likes of Golden Tate can step it up.

We need to be very careful here. Many want to puNCh the Eagles ticket to the Super Bowl right now. It’s a perfect example of how the betting public reacts to a teams LAST Game. Sure, beating the Steelers was impressive. But the Eagles have played just 3 Games and two of those wins were against the Browns and Bears.

Carson Wentz WILL come back down to earth. When he does, it will reflect on the scoreboard and the pockets of Eagles backers. We’ll go out on a limb and call for this to be the week the balloon pops. Let’s call it the against the public special. Lions +3.5
