Pennsylvania online sportsbooks listed the Philadelphia Eagles as 7.5-point underdogs against the Baltimore Ravens early in the week. By kickoff on Sunday, the Ravens were 10-point favorites against the banged-up Birds.
Early indications pointed to a blowout. The Eagles offense averaged negative .44 yards per play through their first 16 snaps. The Ravens led 17-0 at halftime. Carson Wentz turned in a gutsy performance, but an Eagles two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter was stopped, which sealed the 30-28 win for the Ravens.
By the end of the game, Wentz and center Jason Kelce were the only Week One starters still standing. Additional members added to the Eagles M.A.S.H. unit after Week Six were:
- Miles Sanders (knee, out 1-2 weeks)
- Zach Ertz (ankle, out 3-4 weeks)
- Malik Jackson (quad, out 1-2 weeks)
- Jack Driscoll (ankle, out 1-2 weeks)
The Birds have little time to lick their wounds. They host the New York Giants on Thursday night. PA sportsbook apps have the Eagles as 3.5-point favorites.
