New England Patriots: New faces, same old Brady
With a bunch of new faces on the Patriots entering the 2013 season, there remains one constant that keeps fans confident in that of Tom Brady. Brady will need to be on the top of his game with an unfamiliar receiving corps if the Patriots wish to return to glory. Gone are Aaron Hernandez and Wes Welker.
Philadelphia Eagles: Chip Kelly era begins
Kelly enters the NFL after a successful stint as head coach of the Oregon Ducks. He is hopeful that his up-tempo offense will translate to the NFL and overwhelm opposing defenses. He has plenty of talented quarterbacks to choose from to run the offense including Michael Vick, Nick Foles, and Matt Barkley.
For tonight’s first pre-season game for the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, we head over to Sportsinteraction.com for the betting lines. Despite being three-point road underdogs, we are still going to bet on the Patriots to grab the win with the OVER 41.5 total points at -110 on Friday night.
