NICK FIERRO’S PICK: EA­GLES 23, PACK­ERS 20

The Morning Call - - SPORTS -

A sea­son that’s made no sense will con­tinue go­ing in that di­rec­tion with an up­set vic­tory by the Ea­gles.

Why? Be­cause the Ea­gles have turned it over so much and be­cause the Pack­ers lead the league in take­aways; be­cause Pack­ers QB Aaron Rodgers thrives like a mu­tant virus against sec­on­daries like the Ea­gles, who don’t plas­ter in cov­er­age very well; be­cause the Ea­gles are with­out their top play­maker (Jack­son) against a de­fense that’s al­lowed just one touch­down pass. That’s why.
