Man Philly is on FIRE!!!  Depending on whether AP really plays or not will decide on the line.  Maybe that's why it's at 4.5 instead of the 7+ I expected it to have been. 

Honestly though, I think that the 4.5 is a steal.  Cassel is playing pretty decently but no one can stop Foles.  I thought this last week would've ended their hot streak, but boy was I wrong.  No reason why Minny is gonna stop them, even if it is in their home field. 

If you wanna play the total, then take the Over.  That's ONLY if AP plays for sure.  If not I wouldn't touch it.

The EAGLES schedule has been fairly easy so the on fire theory don't fly to much with me. But with them playing these VIKINGS should keep their winning streak going. PHILLY's got a pretty dominant record against MINNY too. And VIKING's really suck regardless. 

                            PHILLY CHALKS UP ANOTHER WIN !!!!

Eagles have yet to play in a dome this season. However they are 1-0 SU and ATS on turf this season. This is a fishy line for a team coming off  5 straight wins like the Eagles have. Vikings have been playing better (more competitive anyway) the last few weeks, I think this is a classic example of a team rallying to save a "players coach"-es job. Eagles are obviously the better team but I think they slip up.

Vikings +4.5
Vikings +180

that makes some sense rock. because i am a homer i still cant see how the vikings win this but last time the eagles played the vikes i could not see how joe webb could stop a red hot vick and the vikes won out right on a tuseday night, but i will still take the birds laying 4.5.

Gotta figure Egrets by a TD, No???? Minny's got Ponder, uh, we don't know, "All Day", but is he really "All Day" as far as carrying a team? The real leading rusher on Philly, NOT Minny.... Eagles going for that division title........

I'm going Eagles and the cover.........

Eagles tend to leave door open at end of games for teams to cover, with possibly no AP the eagles air attack wins this one and does enough to cover.

Even if AP plays not 100% may just hurt the Vikings more in their efforts.  Cassel should stay a backup

Foles has big day

Eagles 28 Vikings 14

Ponder isnt starting, Cassell is. Doesn't sound like Peterson will play.

Jumped on this early got a -5.5. The Vikes have the worst secondary in the league and it will show with Foles at the helm. Eagles winner by easy cover.

Peterson is questionable if he doesn't play this game is done before the opening kick off.  He has bruised ligaments in his foot and that to me would be really hard to run on or make any kind of a cut.  Will wait to see if he is playing but i still think Philly wins by at least a td. GLA

Philly-6 for the medium. Line jumped from 5.5 to 6.5 because sharps are recommending Philly. How can the broken Minny  offense keep within a score of the philly offense? It can't. Eyyyyyyyy get it

typical NFL....hopefully eagles come out and smash em, if they can hold on to the friggin ball for more than a few minutes. 2nd half belongs to the eagles.

I figured out how you stop Foles, by not running the damn ball.  All the offensive weapons and you don't utilize them?  That's how you lose outright.  So sad, this is my only loss this weekend but all the 3 other were easy smashing covers.  Damn you Philly!
