It’s been a tough year for Philly’s “Dream Team”
The Philadelphia Eagles are 4-6 and now must face a red hot Patriots team on Sunday afternoon…most likely without Michael VIck, Nnamdi Asomugha and Jeremy Maclin. Vick looks like he will miss his second consecutive game with a rib injury, meaning the Eagles will rely on Vince Young to lead the offense at QB. Asomugha was carted off the practice field on Thursday with a hyperextended knee and is listed as Questionable while Maclin, Philly’s number 2 receiver, is Doubtful due to a hamstring injury.
Bill Belichick must be licking his lips going into this one. Before the season started, the Eagles were touted as the “Dream Team” after signing Micheal Vick to a $100 million contarct and luring in the likes of Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to deepen their already talented secondary. Now they meet the Pats as New England comes off their biggest blowout win of the season.
Tom Brady should have a field day against the Eagles is Asomugha does not play. As it is, opposing Defenses have failed to find an answer for the Pats’ star TE Rob Gronkowski all season. Look for Brady to connect with Gronk for another big day. I predict the Pats win convincingly 34-17.
