    It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for this week’s game. Get it right, and you’ll have enough money to bribe FIFA into holding the 2026 World Cup at your uncle’s house. Can one acre of land in Pennsylvania accommodate a dozen stadia and millions of fans from around the globe? Hey, if Qatar can do it, you can too! Here we go:

    Peter King:Eagles 33, Texans 26. “At the risk of being taken off the Reid Family Christmas Card List, let me harp on the exposure to injury Michael Vick is getting right now.” Is Peter King really on Andy’s Christmas Card list? That’s getting too close to your subject, good sir!

    Michael Silver: Eagles.

    Pete Prisco (CBS): Eagles.

    Index Card I Threw Up In The Air With The Name Of Each Team On Either Side, Seeing Which Team Would Land Face Up: Eagles (Index Card record: 4-7)

    The Wife: Eagles.

    Me: It’s hard to tell if Houston’s shutout of Tennessee after losing four in a row was just a byproduct of playing against the immortal Rusty Smith, or if this team really is rallying to end the year, as they did in vain at the end of 2009. I’m not sure. The Texans looked so solid opening the year. It seemed like they were poised to break out and win 12 games. Then the losses piled up and the defense fell apart. Yet they remain just one game out of first place. Perhaps Indy getting crushed on Sunday was the motivation they needed to reassert themselves. But I don’t trust Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub on the road on the road until they prove it. EAGLES 42, TEXANS 28.
