The Eagles have got off to a good start to their season following the 29-10 home victory to the Cleveland Browns as they covered the point spread as a -4 point favorite. This marked the debut of rookie quarterback Carson Wentz who came away with a good performance as he completed 22 of 37 passes for 278 yards with two touchdowns. The Cleveland Browns appear to be a down football team but the Eagles defense had a good performance against them by allowing just 288 yards to their offense with 120 coming from their passing game. On the ground former Oregon running back Kenjon Barner had four rushes for 42 yards. He had only six carries in his rookie contest and didn’t play in 2014. In 2015 he played in 11 games and had 28 carries for 4.4 yards per carry average. Ryan Mathews was a first round pick of the San Diego Chargers and was a disappointment with them. He came over to the Eagles in 2015 and rushed for 539 yards on 106 carries for a career high 5.1 yards per carry average. Mathews saw the majority of the work at running back in week one and had 22 carries for 77 yards and a rushing touchdown.

The Chicago Bears were pitted against the Houston Texas on the road in their 2016 opener. They dropped a 23-14 road decision as they failed to cover the spread as a +5 ½ point underdog. The Bears could not build on a 14-10 halftime lead as they went scoreless in the second half. They were held to only 258 yards to the good Houston defense. With Matt Forte lost in free agency we saw the Bears running game produce little as they ran for 73 yards on 20 carries. Jay Cutler went 16 of 29 for 216 yards with a touchdown and pick.
