The Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills meet Sunday in NFL action at New Era Field.
The Philadelphia Eagles could use a victory here after losing four of their last six games. The Philadelphia Eagles have lost three of their last four road games. Carson Wentz is completing 61.3 percent of his passes for 1,649 yards, 13 touchdowns and four interceptions. Wentz has two or more touchdown passes in 12 of his last 17 games. Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor have combined for 658 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Alshon Jeffery has 26 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 111.7 yards per contest, and Josh Howard leads the way with 347 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 26.6 points and 360 yards per game. Rodney McLeod leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 41 tackles, Brandon Graham has four sacks and Nathan Gerry has two interceptions.
The Buffalo Bills look for another win to build on their surprise 5-1 start to the season. The Buffalo Bills have won four of their last five home games. Josh Allen is completing 62.4 percent of his passes for 1,324 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. Allen has one or less touchdown passes in 13 of his last 17 games. John Brown and Cole Beasley have combined for 756 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Dawson Knox has 12 receptions. The Buffalo Bills ground game is averaging 135.8 yards per contest, and Frank Gore leads the way with 388 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Buffalo is allowing 15.2 points and 292.7 yards per game. Tremaine Edmunds leads the Buffalo Bills with 43 tackles, Jordan Phillips has four sacks and Tre'Davious White has three interceptions.
The Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on turf, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bills are 2-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Bills last 6 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Eagles last 7 road games.
The Philadelphia Eagles have covered seven of their last 12 games as a road underdog. The Buffalo Bills have failed to cover four of their last five games as a home favorite. I mentioned before the season that I wasn't as high on the Philadelphia Eagles as everybody else seemed to be, and right now we're seeing their defense fall apart and Wentz struggle to be that consistent quarterback option to will his team to victory. The Buffalo Bills are in dogfights every week and may not play the prettiest style of football, but they're led by a really good defense and find ways to come out on top. Good teams have the ability to win close games and it may be time to give the Bills their props and say they're a good team. I'll lay the small chalk.
