Philadelphia Eagles Secondary Should Devour QB Philip Rivers in Week 2 Match-up
And fortunately for the Philadelphia Eagles’ highly inexperienced secondary, they get to take on the deteriorating veteran this Sunday afternoon. While the Eagles enter the Week 2 match-up at 1-0, after squeezing out an exciting Monday night victory against the Washington Redskins, Rivers and the Chargers are coming off a horribly embarrassing comeback loss in Monday’s night-cap.
The Eagles’ secondary consists of a gaggle of journeymen, along with a few promising youngsters, who mostly performed impressively in their season debut. And I expect the Birds’ coverage-men to continue their triumphs against the always shaky and inconsistent Rivers.
While Eagles rookie CB Jordan Poyer and S Patrick Chung took their turns getting burned, second-year wheels-man CB Brandon Boykin and the always controversial CB Cary Williams each turned in very impressive performances, picking off a duo of QB Robert Griffin III passes.
Even though RGIII is a second-year signal-caller and Rivers is a long-time vet, I still trust Griffin’s judgment a lot more than the latter at this point. Rivers just always looks jittery and on-the-verge of a breakdown, and that’s why I’m looking for the Eagles’ secondary to just chew him up from the first snap on.
Look for Rivers to throw at least a pair of interceptions. Check that. Look for Rivers to throw three interceptions, along with a bevy of horribly inaccurate ducks-of-passes.
I’m calling for the Eagles to pull off a 23-13 victory, with the demise of Rivers being the main reason for the Birds’ Week 2 win.
