PAT’S THOUGHTS:

This one is fish city.  How in hell is the line only 3?  I expected the Super Bowl hangover to kick in for Philly in week 1, but they played with an edge and beat a good Atlanta team.  Is this the week they have a letdown?  It is hard to believe, especially with extra time to prepare.  However, it feels like Vegas is begging you to take Philly.  Not me – I pass.
