Packers (-2.5) over BRONCOS Let's see: 6-0 vs. 6-0. No edge there . . . Both are teams coming off a bye week. No edge there . . . Denver's defense is No. 1 overall, allowing the fewest yards (281.3), while Green Bay is No. 1 in points allowed per game (16.8). No edge there . . . So it boils down to the QBs - Aaron Rodgers vs. Peyton Manning . Huge edge there, to Mr. Discount Double Check. Maybe a few years ago, the glaring edge would not have been such a big deal, but check the numbers.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was in Nick Foles' shoes last season. He offered the Eagles quarterback some simple advice regarding his broken collarbone: Listen to your body. Rodgers broke his left collarbone on Nov. 4 last year during a loss to the Chicago Bears. He missed the next seven games. Foles suffered the same injury, also to his non-throwing shoulder, Nov. 2 during the Eagles' victory at Houston. He is expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks. The Eagles will visit Green Bay on Sunday and that means dealing with Rodgers, whose career passer rating of 106.2 is the highest in NFL history.

EAGLES RADIO VOICE Merrill Reese was disappointed when he entered the NovaCare media room yesterday and heard that Aaron Rodgers isn't expected to play when the Eagles visit Green Bay tomorrow night. Someone observed that Rodgers, 31, a two-time NFL MVP, probably doesn't need to play the Eagles in the preseason to get ready to lead the Packers into the games that count. "Yes, but I need him to play!" Reese joked. Like many fans and media observers, Reese had been looking forward to seeing how the Eagles' much-discussed defensive improvements would stack up, even in a meaningless game, against the NFC's top quarterback.

LANDOVER, Md. - This gaffe was not as egregious as the one DeSean Jackson made as a rookie wide receiver for the Eagles in 2008. Jackson lost what would have been his first NFL touchdown when he celebrated too early and flipped the ball behind him at the 1-yard line. After a challenge by the Dallas Cowboys, what was initially called a touchdown was overturned. It was an embarrassing lesson for Jackson but not costly to the Eagles because they scored a touchdown on the next play.

Will we see bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and her beau in Happy Valley for a Penn State football game on the opening day of the 2016 season? It just may very well happen. Jordan Rodgers, who won the hand of Fletcher Monday night in the season finale of the reality show The Bachelorette, played quarterback at Vanderbilt in 2011 and 2012 under then-head coach James Franklin. Now Penn State's head coach, Franklin said Thursday at football media day that he would love to have Rodgers and his fiancée come to a game, and he set out to do that later in the day on Twitter.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State sophomore Saquon Barkley is getting a lot of attention this season as one of the nation's top running backs. He also wants to add one more line to his resumé - kickoff returner. The 5-foot-11, 223-pound native of the Lehigh Valley said he got the idea - "100 percent" - from watching Stanford's Christian McCaffrey, who set an NCAA record last season for all-purpose yards. "I'm a fan of the running backs. I like watching them," Barkley said Thursday at Penn State media day. "McCaffrey is a guy who can do it all. Just the type of talent he brought to the return game is something I hope I can maybe bring.

Doug Pederson may be craftier than he lets on. Consider the Eagles' quarterback situation, for instance, but just for a little while. If you consider it for any longer than a minute, you run the risk of giving yourself a nosebleed. That's how muddled and confusing it is. It's so muddled and confusing, in fact, that the person who stands to benefit most from it this season, and perhaps beyond this season, is not Sam Bradford or Chase Daniel or Carson Wentz. It's Pederson. Let's think it through together.

On Second Thought    Only seven quarterbacks have been chosen with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft since the 1970 NFL merger. The Eagles, after pulling off a blockbuster trade with the Browns on Wednesday, will make it eight next Thursday. It will be the second time for the franchise after it selected Donovan McNabb in 1999.    Howie Roseman didn't tip his hand as to whether the Eagles will choose Carson Wentz or Jared Goff, but all signs point to the former with the Rams reportedly set to take Goff at No. 1. Either way, quarterbacks will be taken with the first two picks for the sixth time since 1970.

SO MANY mediocre quarterbacks will be starting this week, Roger Goodell ought to change the name of his league to the MFL. Injuries and ineffectiveness have spread throughout the league like a plague of Drew Rosenhauses. Throw in the fact that Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning and Drew Brees are on bye, and many fantasy players - especially those in two-quarterback leagues - are in a real bind. Let's take a look at the 28 guys expected to start this week. QB1s The obvious top starters: 1. Tom Brady (vs. Buffalo)

Eagles (-2.5) over COWBOYS You think that DeMarco Murray and the Birds are gonna be ready for the visit to Dallas? Oh, boy, will they! The Eagles were embarrassed in Week 2 at home, 20-10, with Murray rumbling - obviously with a bit of sarcasm - for 2 yards on 13 carries. But the good news here is how the Eagles love playing in Dallas. The last two years under Chip Kelly the Birds have won both (33-10 last season as a three-point point underdog, and 24-22 in 2013 as a 7.5-point favorite)

Six weeks in, and there are still five unbeaten teams. That has never happened before in the NFL, and if you're looking for reasons why it has now, it should come as little surprise that superior quarterback play tops the list. There is, however, an element of surprise to some of the quarterbacks playing at an elite level and in the one team that has remained unbeaten in spite of its quarterback play. Tom Brady, who at 38 is saying he wants to play 10 more years, is the league's highest-rated passer.
