Opening Line & Total: Philly -9 & 44

Michael Vick is questionable for a second straight week, this time because of a non-throwing hand injury, when the Eagles host the 49ers.

Vick is expected to start, but the Eagles will be moderately affected as their offense often includes some creative ball-handling by Vick. Vince Young is finally healed from his hamstring injury and will likely be the No. 2 quarterback. The 49ers have dropped five straight, SU and ATS, to Philadelphia, including a 27-24 home loss last October. San Francisco outgained the Eagles in that game, which Vick missed. QB Alex Smith accounted for three of San Francisco’s five turnovers. The Eagles are the superior team, and they should win big in their home stadium.

San Francisco is currently in first place in the NFC West after posting a 13-8 win in Cincinnati last week. Despite the 2-1 record on the season, this offense has been atrocious. The Niners rank dead last in NFL total yardage (213.7 YPG), and star RB Frank Gore (2.5 YPC) has been the main culprit for lagging production. Gore’s status is uncertain after he suffered a sprained right ankle in Sunday’s win. QB Alex Smith hasn’t been a superstar either, with only 504 passing yards and two touchdowns in three games. Defensively, the team has played pretty well, especially against the run, where it ranks third in yardage (62.7 YPG) and second in yards per carry (2.9). Although, one of the game’s elite tacklers, S Donte Whitner, injured his hip in Sunday’s win and is questionable for this game.

During the five-game series win streak over the Niners, Philly has won by an average score of 35 to 18. The Eagles have rushed the ball extremely well this season, racking up 182 yards per game (2nd in NFL) on 5.4 YPC. The passing game is below average (227 YPG), but the team got some great news this week as starting WR Jeremy Maclin’s hamstring injury does not appear to be serious, and he should play Sunday. The one area that is really hurting Philadelphia is turnovers, as the team has six giveaways during its two-game slide. On defense, the team has 12 sacks already (2nd in NFL), including four from Cullen Jenkins, four from Jason Babin and three from Trent Cole. Despite the great QB pressure, the Eagles are third-worst in the league in rushing defense, surrendering 131 rushing YPG.
