Seahawks vs Eagles Odds, Preview and Predictions

Seahawks vs Eagles 2020


Well, the Eagles have a full plate this Thanksgiving week’s game against the Seahawks.  The game is being played on Monday Night Football this week with the (7-3) Seahawks vs (3-6-1) Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field at 8:15pm on ESPN.  As we all saw in the Cowboys vs Washington game, Washington rolled over the injury ridden Cowboys with a 41-16 win to take over first place from the Eagles with Washington’s 4-7 record.

The Eagles are going to have to pull every trick out of the hat and solid play on both sides of the ball to pull away with a victory in order to regain 1st place in the NFC East.  This is a mighty task and the odds are not in the Eagles favor.  The odds show that the Eagles are 5-point underdogs against the Seahawks and I believe they are even bigger underdogs than that with the quality of play we saw last week.

What are the odds the Eagles will win SuperBowl 54

February 21st, 2019 by Leo | Comments Off on What are the odds the Eagles will win SuperBowl 54 | Filed in Eagles, Football, General

The 2018-19 season ended on a sour note as the Eagles made their bid to win back to back SuperBowls.  Typically it is a hard feat to do with the added pressure and being the main target for every team wanting to beat the Champs.  With Carson Wentz falling to injury for the second season in a row, good ole St. Nick stepped in to get the Eagles into the playoffs, beating the Rams in the process.  The Eagles fans thought another miracle was in the making with a double doink win over the Bears in the wildcard, but St. Nick fell short in a fourth quarter comeback against the Saints with a pass through the hands of Alshon Jeffrey that became a interception. It was an exciting ride for a bit and one pass/drive away from the NFC Championship game.

Well, with last season behind us and the New England Patriots winning another SuperBowl, the question arises on what chance the Eagles have to win SuperBowl 54.  If you want to check out the Eagles stats and figures for last year and upcoming news check out the Philadelphia Eagles page on NFL.com.

According to one source, the Eagles have the best Super Bowl 54 odds in the NFC East at +1800, narrowly ahead of Dallas (+2000). If they can bolster the backfield in free agency, they should be even shorter by Week 1. Philly was ranked 27th in rushing efficiency by Football Outsiders and 28th in rushing by Pro Football Focus last year, even though PFF graded the O-line as the 5th-best run-blocking unit. Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, Corey Clement: all the RBs left meat on the bone, and the team never found a suitable replacement for Jay Ajayi. Le’Veon Bell would obviously come with huge off-field concerns, but putting his hyper-patient running style behind this offensive line would produce instant results. Lets see what the off-season brings.

The Evolution of Ben Simmons

April 8th, 2018 by Christian | Comments Off on The Evolution of Ben Simmons | Filed in Basketball, General, NBA, Sixers

By Christian Klemash

Ben Simmons has evolved. And this evolution hasn’t taken centuries, decades or years. It’s taken less than one full season in the NBA.

Relentless defense. Orchestrating the offense. Vocal leadership. Unparalleled court vision. Physical domination. Points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks. Simmons is doing it all. And he’s only 21. As of today, I would take him over any other player in the NBA. He is the best player in the league – a 6’10” point guard who can dribble through a minefield, play power forward and pass like Magic Johnson. He is the complete package – and he’s playing like he knows it.

Philly Sports News: Revisiting some memorable Eagles-Steelers games

September 22nd, 2016 by Kyle Lutz | Comments Off on Philly Sports News: Revisiting some memorable Eagles-Steelers games | Filed in Eagles, Football, General, NFL, Sports

Over the years, despite the fact that neither team plays in the same conference as the other, the Steelers and Eagles have had some memorable games. This is in addition to the fact that, 73 years ago, the Eagles and Steelers temporarily combined to be one team, the Steagles, due to both teams having lost many of their players to World War II. Since both teams started playing each other in 1933, surprisingly, the Eagles have a 46-28-3 record vs. Pittsburgh. One of the 77 games was added to the Eagles’ 10 greatest games DVD that came out seven-years ago.

On November 12th, 2000, at Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium, the Eagles put together a late fourth-quarter comeback to win in overtime, 26-23. With 3:55 left in the game, trailing 20-13, the Eagles were able to stop Hall of Fame halfback Jerome Bettis on 3rd down. Despite the stop, 13 seconds later, Pittsburgh kicker Kris Brown kicked a 40-yard field goal to increase their lead to 10. Kick returner and running back Brian Mitchell ran back the ensuing kick for 23 yards. After three-straight completions, and a lucky unnecessary-roughness call, on a fade route, Donovan McNabb caught Mitchell for 13 yards and a touchdown.

Then the Eagles successfully executed an onside-kick attempt, recovered the ball, and, as time expired, went on to tie the game at 23 all. During their last two drives, they were able to score 10 points in just two-and-a-half minutes. That year, the Steelers’ defense only allowed 13 passing touchdowns (McNabb had two of them that game, and 0 turnovers), and their unit ranked in the top 10 in several categories, including takeaways. 10:44 into overtime, with a 42-yard field goal, Eagles’ kicker David Akers won the game.

2000- Final Score- Eagles 26-23

In 1947, the 8-4 Steelers suffered their first ever playoff loss, 21-0 to the Eagles. A year later, vs. Chicago, the Eagles would win their first-ever championship. In that 1947 season, Pittsburgh was an even-keeled team, on both offense and defense. They ranked seventh in the league in both points for and points against (240-259). In October of that season, at Forbes Field, Pittsburgh beat Philadelphia 35-24, despite Eagles’ Hall of Fame halfback Steve Van Buren rushing for 133 yards. Leading up to their December divisional-round postseason game, the Steelers that season had three games with 30 or more points, including 38 at the Polo Grounds, yet in their playoff loss, they were shut out and only mustered 154 total yards. Two Pro Football Hall of Famers started that day for the Eagles (halfback Steve Van Buren and center/defensive end Alex Wojciechowic).

Chip the Savior … or was it the Destroyer?

I have a plan!

I have to say that the state of the Eagles is the worst I have seen it in my lifetime.  I don’t think most of us saw it coming.  But we were dazzled by the plethora of moves the Eagles made in the off-season in their efforts to dismantle a winning team in the name of Chip’s vision.  Well, it hasn’t paid off as of yet to say the least.

We traded away a core group of talented young players, namely, Foles, McCoy, Maclin.  We gutted out some veterans like Cole, Herremans and Mathis.  What did we get?  A mish-mash of players who have not gelled as a team cause they haven’t played enough together.

My draw dropped when I heard the Eagles traded away Foles, a franchise QB and winning rookie QB about to start the prime of his career for a former injured and unproven Bradford.  My reservations were confirmed after watching what was arguably the worst game I ever saw a NFL franchise play.
