Before the season started I saw these two match ups on the NFL Week 3 schedule and said to myself that this could be called “Revenge of the Fallen” with Andy Reid going back to Philly and Ed Reed going back to Baltimore, so here’s the advantages I see in these match ups and who will win and why:

Kansas City @ PHILADELPHIA (-3 51)

 

Chiefs advantage: a balanced ball control attack with a QB in Smith that doesn’t turn the ball over.  Smith will make the checkdowns to get Charles out in space and the fact that they want to win this game badly for Reid.

Eagles advantage: tempo, TEMpo, and more TEMPO!  The Eagles can run a multitude of plays which won’t allow the Chiefs to sub in and out.  Facing Shady McCoy and DJax (his play this year lets us know he didn’t give a damn last year) that won’t be an easy task for the Chiefs.

Who will win and why: Chiefs +3 and the over, in two games the Eagles haven’t stopped anyone and J. Charles and D. Bowe will be the best skill players at their respective positions that the Eagles have faced thus far. The fact McNabb’s number is being retired will just make it an awful night for the fans of Philly. Kansas City wins 31-27

 

Houston (-2 1/2) @ Baltimore

 

Texans advantage: The passing game!  Schaub already had Johnson and Daniels, but with the sudden emergence of Hopkins to go along with Foster on check downs;  it could be a long day for Baltimore’s secondary.

Texan

 

Ravens advantage: Physicality!  The Texans are a team that doesn’t like to play physical offensively.  Flacco should be able to stretch the field with Smith for some huge gains, and the combo of Dumervil and T-Sizzle (Ball So Hard University) can wreck any teams game plan.

Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers AFC Championship

Who will win and why: Texans -2.5 and the over.  Normally, I would take the Ravens, but I just don’t think they can score right now to keep up with the Texans.  Plus J.J. Watt!!!!! is due for a big game. Texans 31-17

Falcons Don’t Fly in Philly

The high flying falcons come out of the bye week at 6-0. However, people still have a lot of questions about their authenticity, & for good reason. With the 3-3 Eagles awaiting the Falcons, we may as well consider that winning streak broken. That’s right, go ahead and chalk them up 6-1. The Falcons haven’t won in the state of Pennsylvania since 1974, with an embarrassing record of 0-11-1.

This has been a season of firsts for the Falcons: their first 5-0 start followed by their first 6-0 streak. Matty Ice is the front runner for the MVP, Julio and Roddy alternating week to week to see who goes off, and the ageless Tony G just down right ballin’. With all of these factors on the field, the Falcons should continue trending right, and going on to their first 7-0 winning streak. After that, they just need possibly two more wins to wrap up the NFC South.

I say, “Hell Nah.” This is a bad matchup for the Falcons on all kinds of levels. Between Andy Reid being 13-0 after the bye, the elusiveness of Vick and Shady McCoy, and the speed of DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, I don’t see them pulling out a win. All of these factors combined will prove too much for them damn dirty birds. My prediction is that the Falcons take the L.
