I think that the Philadelphia Eagles have the best chance in the entire league to beat the Patriots. They are they only other undefeated team and have beaten almost every team by atleast 10 points. Reply if you agree or disagree with me.

How do they match up, man for man, with the Patriots? You could almost say the Jets have the best chance to beat them, when they get their return match with the Pats later in the year. You're gonna need a little more than the fact the Eagles are undefeated, because besides Minnesota at home and Detroit on the road, they really haven't beaten anyone that good.

I recognize it's hard to come out and win every week in the NFL, but the Pats have been doing that for much longer.

Also, the Eagles don't appear on the schedule for the Pats this year, so the only way this matchup happens is in the Super Bowl, and if I were Philadelphia, I'd worry much more about getting there first than who I'm playing there.

You forgot the Giants. The Eagles smacked the Giants around as well. While I still think the Giants are playing a little over their heads they are still 4-2 and winning at Cleveland is a good solid win. The Browns are a solid home team this year.

Doeblee beat me to it, Pritch. In fact, I would say the opposite if what you SEEM to be inferring is true: This season, the Eagles have beaten tougher teams than NE has....on top of it, yesterday was the first time they didn't win in double digits.

True, I do admit to being wrong sometimes, and this is one of those times. A better point to make is one I've already made, if I were the Eagles, I wouldn't be looking that far in the future, I'd focus on the "unfinished business" that has been laying around waiting for them to complete it (sorry, lmanchur, it's the first phrase that came to mind).

It's funny, because I think Baltimore will do the same to Philly this week.

T.O., don't think Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, and Peter Boulware haven't put the crosshairs on you. They likely haven't forgot what happened this off-season.

We'll see what Philly can do against a real defense.

Don't make light of the fact that the Eagles haven't beaten The Modell Franchise (Ravens since 1996, Browns before that) at home since all the way back in 1967.

They faced a similar scenario late last year when they hosted the 49ers, who hadn't lost in Philly since 1975. The game shouldn't have even been competitive - the Niners hadn't won on the road all year and hadn't won a cold-weather game in more than six years. Yet San Francisco did in fact win that game.

Make no mistake about it - jinxes definitely exist (although the most famous and probably the longest one - the Curse of the Bambino - is now one game away from being broken).

Yeah, and now it looks like Westbrook won't be playing, or will be very limited, this weekend.

Terrell Owens just did Ray Lewis' dance after catching a TD. Damn, this guy is amazing.

Ugh, it was not pretty, but a win is a win. It really broke my heart to see the Giants just roll over the Vikings today. Eagles have a two game lead for home field with wins over two of the two loss teams.

I was listening to the Packers game on FieldPass (never thought the day would come where radio would cost money) but was very happy to the Giants beating up on the Vikings. Remember that last year as well around this time when Minnesota was 6-0, the Giants went into the MetroDome and beat the Vikings. The season pretty much derailed from that point on. As a Packer fan, I can only hope the same will happen this season.

That was also about the time that Culpepper started throwing the ball around and putting it back on the ground again. Two picks and a lost fumble today. Hmm....

Well, I need to defend my guy here a little bit.
How in the world he was credited with that fumble is beyond me. It should go to Mewelde Moore, not Culpepper. He had nothing to do with moore not catching the ball, and then just standing there when it rolled away from him.

First INT....all on DC. Bad throw. no other way to slice it. Second one? Complete miscommunication. Burleson pulled a Moss, and broke off his route and went deep. Daunte was expecting a comeback and as he threw the ball, Nate pulled it off, and went deep.

All in all, it was a putrid game by everyone, but Daunte really doesn't deserve the blame for three turnovers, IMO.
