NFL: Texans @ Eagles - Sunday, 1 pm

Birds are giving 2.5. We think Houston will have a problem.

If you bleed green, it sure woulda been nice to be getting the 2 1/2 today, wouldn't
it? Oh well. Using conventional wisdom of home-team-gets-automatic-three-points, the line says the teams are evenly matched with a hair's advantage to Houston. Normally I like to use the rebound theory and go against the backup QB in his second game after a win in his first game, but Saint Nick Foles is no normal backup QB. Wasn't impressed with Texans' win last week against Jets team playing for nothing but pride; Eagles are 3-1 since the Debacle in the Big Easy and have their confidence back. If they get up early, I see them prevailing against a team making back-to-back trips up North. Lean to home side.
