NFL Update

October 23, 2017

The Philadelphia Eagles are 5 plus point(s) “faves,” to better their league best (5-1) record tonight at home vs Washington.

5 NFL teams sport (5-2) records, with perhaps Philly joining that group after tonight.

Win, lose or tie (despite overtime being 10, not 15 minutes, there still has not been a tie in the NFL), the Eagles join the two NFC (5-2) teams, the L.A. Rams and Minnesota Vikings as fairly big, positive surprise teams, the Rams the biggest of those positive surprise teams.

It is more or less the opposite in the AFC as defending champion, New England (projected for 12 to 13 wins), Pittsburgh, projected for ten plus and Kansas City (considered at 9) are the three (5-2) teams.

 

The late Earl Morrall’s  surviving ’72 ‘Phins celebrated early this year as Pitts’ win at K.C. in just the sixth week of play, took out the last unbeaten NFL team.

Remember the ’73 Dolphins (15-2) with one meaningful loss, the second was in a meaningless game, dominated in the post-season as few if any NFL teams ever have, and were, therefore, in my opinion, discernibly better than the ’72 team, which struggled in the ‘offs and by a great margin in comparison.
