IF I weren't such a chicken,
I'd at least pick the Eagles to cover. The Broncos are on a short week, the Birds are on a long week. The Eagles are eager to clean up some of the mistakes they made in losing what were, actually, winnable games against San Diego and Kansas City, especially San Diego. Denver might be due for a letdown; there's already some buzz about Peyton Manning's return to Indianapolis Oct. 20, the next time the Broncos play a team that doesn't figure to be at least a touchdown-plus underdog.
