Speaking of bad beats, did you see that game on Monday Night? The Eagles were 6.5 point dogs to the Seahawks. Down 23-9 with 21 seconds left, Carson Wentz chucked a hail mary which was caught by Richard Rodgers. 23-15. Eight points for those of you who suck at mental math. Then Philly defied the gambling gods and went for 2… Miles Sanders ran it in with ease. Final score? 23-17. Probably the worst beat of the year.
This week’s matchup features two teams, and two quarterbacks, moving in opposite directions.
Aaron Rodgers is an MVP candidate and a top 10 QB in competition percentage, yards, touchdowns (1st) and QBR. Wentz ranks in the bottom half of the league in all four categories. But despite last week’s lopsided win, Green Bay comes into this game having played two of three one-score games. So who do you like here? The Eagles, practically playing for their season, or the Packers merely looking to get another easy W.
