This game figures to be close based on the Las Vegas odds as the Jets are favored by -2 points. That means those who target Philadelphia Eagles playmakers for their leagues should see the team not taking their foot off the gas in the fourth quarter. An interesting twist here is that this is a good defensive team facing an NFC squad they see only once every four years.
It has been a bad start for the Philadelphia Eagles as the squad sits at 0-2 on the year. They were held to just 24 points on the road to Atlanta in week one and last week at Dallas the Eagles could only score ten points all game long. The club is having trouble getting their run game going with DeMarco Murray. Philadelphia is 32nd and last in the league in rushing offense as they gain just 35 yards per game on the ground.
The New York Jets are off to a 2-0 start to the year. They have double digit victories in each game by beating Cleveland 31-10 in week one and last week they hit the road to Indianapolis on Monday Night Football and won 20-7 behind a great defensive performance. The Jets limited Indy to no points until ten minutes were remaining in the game. New York is forcing turnovers and currently sit number one in the NFL in scoring defense. Offensively the team has run the ball effectively for 127 yards per game ranking tenth best in the league.
