With the Eagles on the brink of playoff elimination will our football-picking "Experts" could be on the brink of giving up on the Eagles. But, not this week. More than 57 percent of our NBC10 “Experts” have the E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles beating the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets. “The Eagles will win this game 24-17,” said reporter Tim Furlong. “LeSean McCoy will steal the show with a good game after last week's not-so-stellar performance. I think the Eagles might win out this season, which will of course mean -- like it or not – Andy (Reid) stays for another season.” Birds Nest blogger Drew Magary also sees an Eagles victory: “I'm picking the Eagles, and I deeply regret this pick already. EAGLES 15, JETS 10.” Fellow Drew, our web guru, has it 31-28. As for this “Expert,” I pick the Birds big. The Jets don’t have the same defense they are normally known for and I see a big game from Shady. Add in Michael Vick feeling like he has something to prove and I see a 34-27 Eagles win. Not everyone
