NFL Underdog Pick for Week 2|
September 15th 2012 - Special K
Baltimore Ravens (+2.5) at Philadelphia Eagles
I had the Ravens favored in this game by a
field goal. I was very shocked to even see the Eagles favored in this one,
especially after the Ravens beatdown on Monday Night and the Eagles struggles in
Cleveland. Michael Vick was constantly pressured last weekend in Cleveland and
was scrambling for his life all day. He got picked off 4 times and only
completed 51% of his passes against a decent Browns defense. I expect more of
the same from the Ravens defense this Sunday. The Ravens have always been
stout against the run too, so I don't expect McCoy to have much of an impact.
Desean Jackson and Maclin are banged up but expected to start for the Eagles.
John Harbaugh returns to Philadelphia where he coached for 9 years. Ironically,
when Andy Reid took over, Harbaugh was the one coach he kept. Now, Reid will
need to shake Harbaugh's hand in defeat this Sunday.
Take the Ravens to win outright
