Philly2Philly.com Gridiron NFL Picks Week 13: Eagles Over Texans Thursday Night



nfl grid iron picks logo

Last week in Week 12, I finished with a respectable 10 wins while Jesse (12 wins) and Steve O (11 wins) led the way. Oddly enough I haven't been that terrible over the past few weeks. Then again I couldn't get any worse than my 4-win effort a few weeks back.

Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the Eagles who were disappointing last week against the Bears. They will look to rebound on Thursday night against the Texans.

I'm sure I speak for many Philly fans when I say that we need another primetime game like we need a hole in our head. They are fun once in a while, but after you have 3 in 4 weeks it becomes a pain in the butt to stay up late when you have to get up at 5:30 in the morning for work.

With that out of the way - expect a good old fashioned Eagles romp over the Texans tonight. They are going up against a Texans defense, which ranks 28th in the league. Their passing defense is atrocious, which means Michael Vick should be due for a lights out game, much like his legendary performance against the Redskins three weeks ago. Added to that, the Eagles are generally great after a loss. They haven't had too many multiple-game losing streaks under Andy Reid over the years. Expect them to come out firing on all cylinders tonight.

Our entire panel is picking the Eagles over the Texans. I predict a 38-21 blowout and four, count 'em FOUR touchdowns from Michael Vick. If you have him in your fantasy lineup like I do, then start him and smile when he puts up 30 or more fantasy points.
