Time: 4:25 PM EST Sunday November 16, 2014 on FOX
Philadelphia Eagles (7-2) vs. Green Bay Packers (6-3)
Aaron Rodgers is coming off a HUGE game where he tossed 6 TD in the first half and now takes on a high scoring Eagles' team that has won 2 straight even with backup QB Mark Sanchez. The Packers are the 6-point favorite at home where they are undefeated this season (4-0).
The Eagles beat the Packers in Green Bay last season, but that was with Rodgers on the sidelines with an injury.
The Eagles are in first place in the NFC East .5 game up on the Cowboys and the Packers are in 2nd place in the NFC North 1 game back of the Lions.
To say Green Bay has been dominant at home this season would be an understatement. They are outscoring opponents by an average of 25.3 ppg and Rodgers has 15 TD with 0 INT.
In their last games the Eagles beat the Carolina Panthers 45-21 and the Packers beat the Chicago Bears 55-14.
The Eagles are 6-3 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 6-3 and the Packers are 5-3-1 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 8-1.
On the season the Packers are 4-0 at home and the Eagles are 2-2 on the road.
The Eagles' offense has not skipped a beat with Sanchez Under center and he had a big game against Carolina. Jeremy Maclin is his big play WR and he leads the team with 828 yards with 8 TD and has averaged 17.3 yards per reception. Green Bay's pass defense ranks 9th in the league and they rank 4th in the league in INT. On top of that at home they have only allowed 4 passing TD.
While the Green Bay pass defense has been solid their run defense only ranks 30th in the league. Philly RB LeSean McCoy had rushed for 349 yards in 3 straight games, but even in the blowout win against the Panthers he only had 19 yards on 12 carries and overall the Eagles only rushed for 37 yards.
Rodgers has passed for over 730 yards in the last 2 games and he has one of the best WR duos in the league in Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson. This duo has combined for 18 TD, which is the most of any WR tandem in the league. Getting to Rodgers will be key for the Philadelphia pass rush that has the 2nd most sacks in the league.
Eddie Lacy leads the Green Bay rushing offense, but after a stellar rookie campaign he has struggled this season and only has 1 100+ yard rushing game. He will face a Philadelphia run defense that ranks 22nd in the league.
Green Bay Packers: 6-3 SU 5-3-1 ATS

Free Against the Spread Pick
We're not so sure that the Eagles are worse off with Sanchez at QB and keep in mind this team's only loss in the past 5 games was to Arizona who just happens to have the best record in the NFC late on a bomb. It's just too many points to pass up.
