The Philadelphia Eagles are 0-2 straight up and against the spread so far this season. They need a win after two disappointing offensive performances. Last week they lost 20-10 to the Cowboys in a game that was more lopsided than the score would indicate.
The Chip Kelly hurry-up offense has looked inept, averaging 17.0 points per game (28th). While fingers are being pointed at coach Kelly for having a predictable offense. QB Sam Bradford has struggled, throwing for 560 yards 2 TDs & 4 INTs so far. The Eagles are averaging 277.5 passing yards per game (7th).
Bradford’s top target has been WR Jordan Matthew (16 rec, 182 yards, 1 TD). Second in receiving is the always reliable RB Darren Sproles (11 rec, 99 yards, 1 TDs). That should indicate how badly the offense is performing.
Philly’s running game has been atrocious. They are averaging 35.0 rushing yards per game, which is dead last in the league. Last years top rusher, RB DeMarco Murray (21 att, 11 yards, 1 TD) doesn’t fit into Kelly’s offense. He is an in-between the tackles runner, where as the Eagles offense requires an edge runner. Murray also left practice early this week with a hamstring issue. He is questionable to play.
Philadelphia’s defense allows 23.0 points per game (15th), and ranks 25 th against the pass (270.y/g) and 17 th stopping the run (107.0 y/g). Mychal Kendricks leads the Eagles with 17 tackles, Byron Maxwell has a forced fumble and Jordan Hicks has a sack. Marcus Smith and Seyi Ajirotutu are questionable while Mychal Kendricks is doubtful.

The New York Jets are a surprising 2-0 straight up and against the spread. On the strength of their defense, the Jets have are 0-2. Last week they dropped the Colts 20-7 in a game where the Jets defensive front seven pressured Luck all night in a dominating fashion.
The offense scores 25.5 points per game (9th), led by QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. He hasn’t been stellar, but hasn’t turned the football over either. Fitzpatrick has passed for 423 yards, 4 TDs & 2 INTs, while completing 63.8% of his passes.
His top two targets are reliable pass catchers Brandon Marshall (13 rec, 163 yards, 2 TDs) and WR Eric Decker (10 rec, 134 yards 2 TDs).
The running game averages 127.5 yards per game (10th). The top dog in the backfield is bruising rusher Chris Ivory (34 car, 148 yards, 2 TDs), who averages 4.4 yards per carries.
The Jets defense only gives up 8.5 points per game, best in the NFL. They are 17th at defending against the pass (234.0 y/g) and 14th at stopping the run (98.5 y/g). Calvin Pryor leads the Jets with 15 tackles, Darrelle Revis has an interception and Marcus Williams has three pass deflections. Darrin Walls, Devin Smith and Lorenzo Mauldin are questionable while Eric Decker is doubtful.
