Before the ninth Sunday of the 2018 NFL regular season kicks off Philadelphia Eagles T-Shirt
, let’s have some fun by taking a look at the spreads for today’s games. (Click here for NFL Week 9 picks without regard to the spread.)ou can find all of today’s NFL betting lines and over/unders via SB Nation. My season record so far is 51-67-3 after going 10-4 last week. It only took half the season but my picks actually turned out well for once! The hot streak starts now.NFL Week 9 GamesDetroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings (-5.5): This line is giving the Vikings too much credit. Minnesota is closer to being an average team than an elite team. The Lions may not win outright but they’ll at least cover here. PICK: Lions +5.5Chicago Bears (-10) at Buffalo Bills: The Bills can’t score to save their lives. Can’t entirely rule out a weird trap game here with the matchup in Buffalo but the Bills are just so bad. PICK: Bears -10Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers (-6.5): The Bucs are more dangerous now that Ryan Fitzpatrick is back in the starting lineup. The Panthers are legitimately good but I’m still not fully sold on them to the point where I think they’ll make light work of the Bucs. PICK: Buccaneers +6.5Kansas City Chiefs (-7.5) at Cleveland Browns: Maybe the Browns will be better with Hue Jackson gone? Oh, wait, no, Gregg Williams is running the team now. Give me Andy Reid in this coaching matchup. PICK: Chiefs -7.5New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (-3): Brocktober is over. Brockvember doesn’t have the same ring to it. Therefore, take the Jets. #Analysis. PICK: Jets +3Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens (-2): The Steelers are hitting their stride and they’re not about to let themselves get swept by the Ravens this season. PICK: Steelers +2Atlanta Falcons at Washington Redskins (-2): Hope to be wrong about this one since the Eagles really need a Washington loss but this feels like one of those games that’ll be JUST out of reach for Atlanta. PICK: Washington -2Los Angeles Chargers (-1) at Seattle Seahawks: The Seahawks are still a dangerous team. Seattle actually ranks sixth overall in DVOA. The Chargers are even higher at No. 3 Philadelphia Eagles Hats
, but I always like Seattle at home. Especially if they’re getting point(s) there. PICK: Seahawks +1Houston Texans (-1) at Denver Broncos: The Texans have somehow won five in a row after starting out 0-3. They haven’t looked super impressive along the way. It’s not like the Broncos are good but Denver might have some upset potential in them. PICK: Broncos +1Los Angeles Rams (-2) at New Orleans Saints: The undefeated Rams have show signs of vulnerability. It feels like they’re due for a loss at some point. Why not today against a Saints team that might be better than them? I like Drew Brees getting points at home. PICK: Saints +2Green Bay Packers at New England Patriots (-5.5): Tom Brady is going to be super fired up to prove it should be him who should be considered the GOAT. PICK: Patriots -5.5Tennessee Titans at Dallas Cowboys (-4): The Cowboys are less awful than the Titans.
PICK: Cowboys -4DeSean Jackson Update: Buccaneers wide receiver expected to play versus Eagles DeSean Jackson is expected to be cleared from his concussion in time to play in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.Jackson, who was listed “questionable” on the Bucs’ final injury report, was a full participant during Friday’s practice despite dealing with a shoulder issue in addition to his concussion. In other words, this news doesn’t come as a total surprise.Jackson being present for this game is bad news for the Eagles’ defense. The former Philadelphia draft pick loves to torch his former team. Since being released by the Eagles in March 2014 Philadelphia Eagles Womens Hoodie
, Jackson has logged 20 receptions for 440 yards (a whopping 22.0 average) and two touchdowns in five games against Philly. Although he turns 32 in December, Jackson sure looked in prime form last week against the Saints. He torched New Orleans with five receptions for 146 yards (29.2 average) and two touchdowns. The Eagles will have their hands full trying to contain Jackson. It would seem like Jim Schwartz wants to get Ronald Darby, who boast 4.3 40-yard speed, matched up on him. One would imagine Bucs offensive coordinator and play-caller Todd Monken will try to move Jackson around the formation. Of course, Jackson is hardly the only receiving target the Eagles defense will have to worry about on Sunday. Mike Evans is also one of the top wideouts in the game. Penn State alumnus Chris Godwin is impressive. Then there’s O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate at tight end.This underscores how imperative it is for the Eagles to get pressure on Ryan Fitzpatrick this weekend. Fitzpatrick went off against the Saints but he’s clearly not that good every week. We know Philadelphia is capable of creating pressure Womens Customized Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys
, as we just saw last week with the Eagles sacking Matt Ryan four times and hitting him an additional 15 times. The Eagles’ front seven will need another strong performance in order to beat the Bucs.
