Free NFL Pick:
Baltimore is a force in the AFC this season and have looked dominant all season, outside of the game against Kansas City. With one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL, the Ravens wear down this Eagles defense and should be able to dominate the Eagles on both sides of the ball. The Eagles have lost three key starters to injury this season on offense and now facing off against one of the best defenses in the NFL, this one could get ugly for Philadelphia. Final Score Prediction, Baltimore Ravens win and cover ATS 34-17.
