Philadelphia has played far better thus far this season than New York. Head-to-head the Eagles have covered the number against the Jets in each of the last 4. Sam Darnold is not expected to play for the Jets and the short-handed offense will have trouble moving the ball against an improved Eagles defense. Jordan Howard is beginning to pay dividends at running back for the Eagles after scoring three touchdowns against the Packers. Final Score Prediction, Philadelphia Eagles win and cover ATS 31-14
