A dubious Eagles play-call, successfully going for a two-point conversion when the obvious call was to kick an extra point, cost those who backed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to cover a 6.5-point handicap against Philadelphia last week.
The Bucs ended up beating the Eagles 28-22 and it was never really as close as the score would suggest. Of course, whose who backed the Eagles to keep within the spread were delighted.
The Eagles take on the Raiders, who started the post-Jon Gruden era with a monster 34-24 road win in Denver. It was their most complete win of the season.
Sitting at 5-2 ahead of their bye week, the Raiders are in a good spot.
The 2-4 Eagles traded top tight end Zach Ertz to Arizona last week so will be down an offensive weapon as they bid to get back to parity.
They also have starting tight end Dallas Goedert on the NFL’s Covid-19/reserve list and Jack Stoll is the only other TE on their roster.
The Eagles have won the last two meetings but have yet to win back-to-back meetings in the Raiders’ back yard and as great a QB he is, Jalen Hurts may have his work cut out.
