Week 11 Green Bay Packers vs. Philadelphia Eagles
|Name||Record To-Date||This Week’s Pick||Score Prediction|
|Kris Burke||7-2||Philadelphia Eagles||31-28|
|This one is going to be a shootout. After beating up on significantly inferior opponents, the Packers get another chance to beat an elite NFC team. They failed against New Orleans, Detroit and Seattle. The defense has not proven it can stop this kind of offense and don’t underestimate Mark Sanchez. He’s better than what he was with the Jets. Look for it to go back and forth and the Eagles win it on a last minute drive.|
|“Jersey” Al Bracco||7-2||Green Bay Packers||34-23|
|I’m not even sure why, but this game has bothered me since before the season started. Just have had a gut feel of an upset at home in this spot. However, Sanchez at QB has calmed my nerves a bit. I expect the Packers secondary to come up with at least 2 INTs and that will be the difference.|
|Adam Czech||8-1||Green Bay Packers||31-27|
|The Packers score late and don’t leave enough time on the clock for the Eagles to regain the lead. My head tells me the Packers are going to lose this one, but my heart says there is no effing way the Packers can possibly lose to Mark Sanchez.|
|Thomas Hobbes||6-3||Green Bay Packers||27-20|
|I think many people are giving the Eagles offense a lot of praise because of Chip Kelly and his production from last year but the truth is they aren’t a very good offense this year and that was before Mark Sanchez. Where the Eagles shine is on defense and I will take a Packers offense any game.|
|Chad Toporski||7-2||Green Bay Packers||35-24|
|Eagles: 5-0 at home, 2-2 on the road.
Packers: 4-0 at home, 2-3 on the road.
Packers Defense: 28th in rushing yds/att (4.6)
Eagles Offense: 20th in rushing yds/att (4.0)
Finally, the argument against the Packers is they only beat bad teams. Well, the same can be said for the Eagles, who have only beaten one team with a winning record. This matchup is more even than people think, and the nod goes to the Packers at home.
|Jason Perone||6-3||Green Bay Packers||31-28|
|The Eagles’ run game is enough to worry the top run defense, let alone one of the league’s worst. Philadelphia will get their yards on the ground but the Green Bay pass rush creates problems in the passing game. Packers extend their winning streak in the throwback uni’s despite a late charge by Sanchez & Co.|
|Jay Hodgson||8-1||Philadelphia Eagles||31-24|
|Yes, the Eagles have turned to Mark Sanchez. Yes, the Packers have turned to Clay Matthews at inside linebacker. However, I still think the Eagles’ offense is too much for the Packers’ defense to contain for four quarters.|
|Cory Jennerjohn||8-1||Philadelphia Eagles||34-30|
|The Packers cannot stop the run and the Eagles have two of the most dynamic players in the entire league in the backfield in LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles. Chip Kelly will keep the secondary honest with a myriad of read-option and play-action plays. Aaron Rodgers will keep this game close, but even with the reborn Mark Sanchez running the controls, I don’t see the Packers stopping Philly.|
|Andy Burch||6-3||Green Bay Packers||42-21|
|I’ve watched a lot of the Eagles games and I really don’t buy into the hype, especially with Mark Sanchez as their quarterback. Keep in mind that the Eagles beat the Panthers last week, a very bad team. It’s not like they beat the Patriots. I think Rodgers exploits the Eagles secondary and Capers confuses Sanchez into some very bad throws. I don’t expect a close game.|
