The Philadelphia Eagles have covered six of their last nine games as a road underdog. The Green Bay Packers have covered 11 of their last 16 games as a home favorite. I mentioned in my Eagles/Falcons write up that I'm still iffy on Philadelphia and don't think this team is as good as most people suggest. The Eagles are very close to being winless on the season and the defense has had issues getting stops. The Eagles are also banged up heading into this contest, which includes several offensive playmakers questionable. The Green Bay Packers have gotten better in each of their first three games and it's only a matter of time before Rodgers has more success through the air. I'll take the Packers by a touchdown.
