Mychal Kendricks leads the Eagles with 17 tackles, Byron Maxwell has a forced fumble and Jordan Hicks has a sack. Marcus Smith and Seyi Ajirotutu are questionable while Mychal Kendricks is doubtful.
The New York Jets look for another big victory after a shocking 2-0 start. Ryan Fitzpatrick is completing 63.8 percent of his passes for 423 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. Fitzpatrick has thrown two or more touchdowns in four of his last six games. Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker have combined for 297 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Bilal Powell has six receptions. The New York Jets ground game is averaging 127.5 yards per contest, and Chris Ivory leads the way with 148 yards and two touchdowns.

Darrin Walls, Devin Smith and Lorenzo Mauldin are questionable while Eric Decker is doubtful.
The Eagles are 5-16-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Jets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-1-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
The Colts can't get anything going on the offensive end. Nothing. Murray, who led the NFL in rushing yards last season with the Cowboys, has 11 yards on 21 touches. Um, this isn't good when traveling to New York to play possibly the best defense in the NFL.
Not sure how the Jets aren't the pick here.
