Justin: Dwayne Bowe, @ Philadelphia Eagles
Bowe goes up against the Eagles, who run plays so quickly that their opponents get a lot of time with the ball. The Eagles pass defense is not spectacular and Bowe is Alex Smith’s No. 1 guy. I’m expecting a big game from Bowe on Thursday night.
David: Dwayne Bowe @ Philadelphia Eagles
Andy Reid brings his surprisingly undefeated Chiefs to his old stomping grounds for Thursday Night Football. He may just be saying that it’s another game but everyone knows that he really wants to stick it to his former employers. Bowe is still the big-play receiver in this offense, even though he has only caught eight balls for 86 yards and one touchdown so far.
The Eagles have been dismal against the pass, yielding 39 receptions, 501 yards, and five touchdowns to opposing receivers. Reid will rely heavily on Jamaal Charles as always, but he will most certainly take plenty of downfield shots against his former team.
Matt: Eli Manning @ Carolina Panthers
Manning has 812 yards through the first two weeks. Carolina has surrendered an average of 294 yards. Eli has elite numbers besides his seven interceptions. With David Wilson and the Giants running attack showing absolutely nothing, look for Eli to put up huge numbers this week.
