Preview: Eagles at Jets

This afternoon the Eagles will try to save their season at Giants Stadium against the Jets. The Eagles are 1-3 and if they lose today they might as well kiss their postseason aspirations goodbye. They will be playing a team that is 1-4 and definitely in deep trouble. Their quarterback, Chad Pennington, has been horrid this season and let's just say that their might be a different QB out their if he continues to complete less than 3/4 of his passes. The Eagles should easily stop Thomas Jones. The Eagles' D has been better than expected this season and don't expect a change today. The Eagles' D backs have to handle the Jets' talented 1-2 punch at wide receiver (Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery). I see the Eagles intercepting two passes off Chad Pennington.
The Eagles will be a lot better off this week with Brian Westbrook back to being a 100%. McNabb should look better this game, considering that the Jets' D isn't as good as the Giants' D. McNabb should be happy that one of his prime targets from last year is back for the first time this season (TE L.J. Smith). Expect less sacks this week with William Thomas back from injury and not the invisible Winston Justice starting.

Prediction: 21 to 14 Eagles
