Patriots will go 11-1
December 7, 2015
Mark Sanchez and the Eagles will travel to New England to play Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The Eagles just played the Lions on Thanksgiving and got beat down to 45-17. They are now 4-7 and are in third in NFC East. The Patriots just played on Sunday and lost to the Broncos in overtime 33-27. They are 10-1 and remain first in AFC East.
Mark Sanchez is the starting quarterback for the Eagles for this game. He has thrown for 616 yards this season, completing 59 out of 91 passes. Sanchez has four touchdowns this season.
DeMarco Murray leads Philadelphia in rushing. Murray has carried the ball 155 times for 545 yards. He averages over three yards per carry and has four touchdowns on the season.
Jordan Matthews leads the team in receiving. He has caught 58 passes for 625 yards. Matthews averages 10.8 yards per catch and has three touchdowns this year.
Tom Brady is New England’s leading passer. Brady has thrown for 3,600 yards this season, completing 294 out of 451 passes. He has 28 touchdowns this season.
LeGarrette Blount leads the Patriots in rushing. He has carried the ball 142 times for 596 yards. Blount averages over four yards per carry and has six touchdowns this season.
Dion Lewis is now the leading receiver, as Gronkowski, Edelmen, and Amendola are out with injuries. He has caught 36 passes for 388 yard. Lewis averages 10.8 yards per catch and has two touchdowns on the season.
For this game, I’m taking the Patriots. Yes, they are missing some key players, but Tom Brady was able to take the Patriots into overtime despite them being gone last game. The defense blew it for the Patriots. This game will be the opportunity for New England to get their anger out.
