This is insane.
Bring ’em on: Birds say Pats are beatable
Sure, they have to play “a near-perfect game,” but the Eagles claim to be undaunted in their quest to slay the beastliest, best team in the NFL.
…They’re aware that no one expects them to even be competitive, let alone win the game — a belief reinforced by their status as at least a 22-point underdog.
But the Philadelphia Eagles don’t look at their game against the unbeaten New England Patriots as a pointless exercise. Instead, the Birds see the game tonight (8:15 p.m., TV-Chs. 8, 10; Radio-WEEU/830 AM) as a chance to show there really is a reason the games are played.
I look at it as a pointless exercise. A.J. Feelely’s first start in three years, on the road, against the 10 & 0 Patriots?
I’ll be surprised if Philly covers the spread.
