The (12-2) Philadelphia Eagles host the (6-8) Oakland Raiders with kickoff at 8:30 PM ET on ESPN. The Eagles are 9-point favorites and the over/under is set at 47.5, which points to a 28.25-19.25 Philadelphia victory.
This game doesn’t have a great effect on the Patriots, but New England wants the Eagles to defeat the Raiders so Philadelphia will have a better record in case the two teams are eliminated in the same round of the postseason. If the two teams are eliminated at the same time, then the team with the better record will pick later, so the Patriots want the Eagles to have the better record.
