Philly2Philly Gridiron NFL Picks Week 8: Will the Eagles Stop DeMarco Murray and Defeat the Cowboys?


Philly2Philly Gridrion NFL PicksYours truly was tops in wins  last week with 9 wins while Steve O, Josh, and Jesse had 7 wins each. There were upsets galore, but the Green Bay Packers remain the only undefeated team in the league with a 7-0 record heading into their bye week.

A star was born last week in Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, who ran wild for a club-record 253 yards on 25 carries against the dreadful Rams.

As I wrote this week, The Eagles have a hell of a chore this week in stopping DeMarco Murray. If they can hold Murray to under 100 yards then they win Sunday night. If they allow him to gash them, then it could be a long evening.

Our panel is all in on the Eagles this week. And, how could we not be when they're playing Dallas? It doesn't matter if the Eagles are 2-12 and the Cowboys are 14-0, there is always a chance the Birds can knock them off. With a win this week, coupled with a Redskins loss it will put the Eagles in a 3-way tie for second place with the edge since they have a win over the Redskins and Cowboys (provided they win).

UPSET PICK:  I'm picking the Browns to upset the 49ers in San Fran this week. They are coming off a gritty 6-3 win against the Seahawks last week. Look for them to shut down the pedestrian 49ers offense. The 49ers rank 27th in overall offense, while the Browns lead the league in passing defense.
