Philadelphia Eagles @ Seattle Seahawks Thurs. Dec. 1, 2011 8:20 p.m. EST
The Philadelphia Eagles season has officially spun out of control as Andy Reid and company can’t seem to get on track and live up to the extremely high expectations they had coming into this NFL regular season. With Michael Vick’s health still in question and coming off a disappointing loss to the New England Patriots, the Eagles chances of making a run at the playoffs is slim to none, but this “Dream Team” will still have to get back on the gridiron on a short week against the Seattle Seahawks this Thursday.
Even though backup quarterback Vince Young hasn’t been Michael Vick under center for the Eagles in the past few games, the one-time BCS champion has played well enough to keep this team competitive and has been able to give Philly a chance to win every single week. It is uncertain at this point in time whether or not Vick will be able to get on the field in Seattle, but it would probably be safe to say that Young will get the call once again.
With Vince Young under center, the Eagles chances of winning this football game go down, but I still believe they are the better all-around team and should get back on track this week.
As of right now, the Philadelphia Eagles are favored to come out on top on Thursday night with a -3 point spread.
My Picks: Take the Eagles at -3
