NFL Preview: Eagles Look to Test Hurting Titans

Vince Young got dinged against the Jaguars on Monday night. Will he be able to suit up and play effectively for Tennessee after a short week?

Kolb’s time to fly The cliché normally goes that a team with a competition for starting quarterback really has no legitimate starting quarterback. Philadelphia however is bucking the trend with the impressive showings of Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick. As it stands Kolb is the back-up but starting while Vick remains injured although he may suit up if needed. NFL betting fans know well that Andy Reid changes his mind every few minutes but it seems safe to assume Kolb will start on Sunday. He will not have the services of DeSean Jackson at his disposal as the receiver, who was knocked out of last week’s game against by a Dunta Robinson hit. Reid confirmed Jackson will not play against the Titans.

Tennessee has injury worries of their own with Vince Young still limping after getting injured on Monday Night Football. Jeff Fisher has said Young will start but his back-up, Kerry Collins, is on standby just in case. While Collins is one of the better back-ups in the NFL, he too is injured and lacks the game-breaking ability of Young. While Philadelphia had their fair share of injuries to deal with in 2010, they will benefit from being the healthier team in an even contest for once.

Bad news Browns set for more suffering Colt McCoy is getting quite the trial by fire in the NFL. Last week he was thrown in for his first NFL start against Pittsburgh, the team that won the Super Bowl two seasons ago. He now must lead Cleveland on the road to New Orleans to face the reigning Super Bowl Champions. Had this game been a week or two earlier in the season then the Browns would have had reason to be hopeful. The Saints struggled to put points on the board early in the year as the offense stuttered. That’s the kind of team the Browns can hang with.

Unfortunately for Cleveland, the Saints of 2009 are back. A merciless 31-6 beat-down of the Buccaneers last Sunday has set the tone for the coming weeks. Chris Ivory exploded for 158 yards on the ground while Drew Brees threw for 3 touchdowns last Sunday and I expect more of the same this weekend. Don’t expect a close game, bet on the New Orleans Saints as -13.5 favorites with Sports Interaction.
