A competitive NFL betting online matchup occurs in Tennessee on Sunday as the Titans host the Philadelphia Eagles.
Neither team gets as much respect as they deserve in NFL betting at Sbgglobal but both are contenders to make the playoffs this season.
Kevin Kolb – You might be wondering who is going to start at quarterback this week but never fear, it will be Kevin Kolb. Since Michael Vick was injured, Kolb has been great. He was fantastic last week in a 31-17 NFL betting win over the Atlanta Falcons. He completed 23-for-29 for 326-yard and three touchdowns. His passer rating was 133.6. And he did it without DeSean Jackson who he lost to injury in the second quarter. He has played so well the past two weeks that suddenly not many people are talking about wanting Michael Vick back. There is going to be a quarterback controversy in Philly, but it won’t be this week. Head coach Andy Reid said that Kolb is the starter at Tennessee as Vick recovers from a rib injury. Reid will be able to take his time to make a decision on the starter after this game because the Eagles have their bye week coming up. Just how good has Kolb been? He has completed 44 of 60 passes (73.3 percent) for 579 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the last two games, both Philly wins.
Jackson Out – The Eagles will not have wide receiver DeSean Jackson this week. Reid said it was extremely unlikely that Jackson would play this week and it is almost a given, especially since they have a bye next week. Jackson scored two touchdowns last week before leaving the game with a concussion. Jeremy Maclin stepped up in place of Jackson as he had 159 yards. The Eagles will try and protect Kolb again this week and get the win in Tennessee without Jackson.
Series History – The Eagles and Titans have met just three times since Tennessee got a franchise and the Titans won all three games. The Titans won 31-13 in NFL betting online action in 2006 in Philadelphia. They also won in 2002 at home by a score of 27-24 and back in 2000 at Philadelphia by a score of 15-13.
