SAME MODE as last week, except I'm actually picking the Eagles to cover this time.

Maybe Brian Dawkins knows Donovan McNabb inside and out, will pick off a bunch of passes and make the populace even angrier about his departure. I think that pretty much has to happen for the Broncos to win, though.

I like Andy Reid against rookie head coaches, particularly rookie head coaches with nondescript offenses.

I don't think there's a Brian Westbrook jinx, though the Birds are 7-1 without him.

Denver has come to the Northeast twice this season, losing 30-7 at Baltimore and 27-17 at Washington.

Prediction: Eagles 20, Broncos 12.
