    1. Philadelphia Eagles (8-1): The Eagles have the best record in the NFL and are coming off their bye week.

    1. Buffalo Bills (12-3): The Bills game against the Bengals was canceled after the collapse of safety Damar Hamlin after what appeared to be a routine tackle.

    1. Philadelphia Eagles (13-1): Quarterback Jalen Hurts has a right shoulder sprain and may miss the next game, which is Saturday against the Cowboy's in Jerry's House.

Next: +5.5 at Dallas Cowboys – Sat, Dec. 24 – O/U: 46 (ATS: 8-6 – O/U: 9-5) 2. Buffalo Bills (11-3): The Bills won a close match...

    1. Kansas City Chiefs (8-2): Quarterback Patrick Mahomes just keeps on rolling each week. This week Mahomes completed 20 of 34 passes for 329 yards and three touchdowns, while also rushing for 23 yards. Just another week for a great quarterback in a come-from-behind win over the Chargers, 30-27. Next: -15.5 vs Los Angeles Rams - Sun, Nov. 27 – O/U: 43 (ATS: 4-6 – O/U: 5-5) 2.

    Bill Seals - Fred Altieri, Sports Reporters - PFWA Members|Nov 3, 2022

    1. Philadelphia Eagles (6-0): The rich get richer. The Eagle acquired pass rusher Robert Quinn from the Chicago Bears for a fourth-round draft pick in 2023. Quinn, 32, is a three-time Pro Bowler. With a top five offense and a top five defense, adding Quinn almost seems unfair. Next: -10.5 vs Pittsburgh Steelers – Sun, Oct. 30 – O/U: 43 (ATS: 4-2 – O/U: 3-3) 2. Buffalo Bills (5-1): The Bills are coming off a bye week with a deep squad and not much standing in their path to the AFC Champ...
