NFL Week 1

Philadelphia @ Washington —
Condition of RGIII’s rehabbed knee main issue here, especially with backup Cousins (foot) also hurt; Redskins swept Philly 31-6/27-20 LY, after losing five of previous six series games. Iggles won five of last seven visits here, but were -38 in turnovers in Reid’s last two years, which is why he is in KC now. Will Vick protect ball better in Kelly’s offense, especially with WR Maclin out for year? Since ’06, Philly is 17-7 as road dog, 14-7 vs spread in last 21 divisional road games- they won last four road openers, covering eight of last 12. Washington is 9-2 in last 11 home openers (1-4-1 vs spread as favorite); since ’06, they’re just 8-17-1 as home favorites. Odd stat; over last five years, Skins were favored in only two of 15 divisional home games. Seven of Redskins’ last ten home openers stayed under total; over is 3-1-1 in Philly’s last five road openers. If RGIII/Cousins can’t go, former Bear Grossman is Redskins’ #3 QB.

Houston @ San Diego — Before he got fired, Norv Turner made point of saying talent level of his team wasn’t very good; Chargers were 3-5 at home LY, after being 37-11 from ’06-’11- they won last three home openers, by 25-7-28 points. Last five years, San Diego is 1-3 as home dog; favorites are 9-4 vs spread in Chargers’ last 13 non-divisional home games.. Bolts are 4-0 vs Houston, winning by average score of 29-14; Texans lost 24-3/35-10 in visits here, but last one was ’07, before they were good. Last two years, Houston is 7-0-1 in games with spread of 3 or less points; they’re 11-8-1 in last 20 non-divisional road games, 11-5 SU on foreign soil last two years. Texans won five of last six road openers (2-0-1 as favorites). Health of Texans’ star RB Foster is in doubt; Tate would get his carries if he’s unable to play. Over is 7-3 in Houston’s last 10 road openers, 8-2 in Chargers’ last ten home openers.

Monday Night Football: Eagles at Redskins

Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins (-3.5, 52)

The biggest question mark of the offseason and one of the biggest mysteries entering the season will finally be answered when the Washington Redskins host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night in a clash of NFC East rivals. Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will take his first snap since tearing knee ligaments in a playoff loss to Seattle last season. Questions abound over what Philadelphia's offense will look like under Chip Kelly, who makes his NFL coaching debut.

Griffin, the league's Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012, was held out of the preseason by coach Mike Shanahan despite his repeated pronouncements that he was healthy and ready to go. Kelly, who presided over a fast-break offense at Oregon that piled up points at a video-game pace, also had a hot-button topic at quarterback before settling on veteran Michael Vick as his starter. Kelly had an unwelcome distraction when a video surfaced of wide receiver Riley Cooper uttering a racial slur, leading to the brief banishment from training camp for Cooper.

LINE: The Redskins opened as 5.5-point faves and are currently 3.5-point favorites.

WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the low-70s and skies will be partly cloudy for this NFC East matchup. Wind will blow from the SE towards the NW endzone at 6 mph.

ABOUT THE EAGLES (2012: 4-12, fourth NFC East): How Kelly's offense translates to the NFL is the biggest question mark and the key to its success revolves around Vick, who has seen his effectiveness diminish due to a combination of injuries and repeated turnovers. Running back LeSean McCoy saw his rushing touchdowns dwindle from 20 in 2011 to five last season but he seems like an ideal fit for Kelly's schemes, as does speedy wideout DeSean Jackson, whose production also took a major dip a year ago. Team harmony was tested by the remarks of Cooper, who was involved in a practice skirmish on Thursday, while the defense is also under fire after getting torched for nearly 28 points per game in 2012.

ABOUT THE REDSKINS (2012: 10-6, first NFC East): Griffin set NFL rookie quarterback records for both passer rating (102.4) and rushing yards (815) but he was not the only first-year player to make an enormous impact. Sixth-round pick Alfred Morris was second in the league with 1,613 rushing yards, including seven 100-yard games, as the Redskins amassed a league-best 169.3 yards per game on the ground. Top wideout Pierre Garcon was hobbled by a foot injury for much of the season and tight end Fred Davis missed the final nine games with a torn Achilles' tendon. The defensive front remains in flux, but an already-strong linebacking corps receives a boost with the return of Brian Orakpo, who has 29.5 sacks in 49 career games.


* The Eagles are 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 versus the NFC.
* The Redskins are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 versus the NFC East.
* The favorite is 5-0 ATS in their last five meetings.
* The under is 7-3-2 in the last 12 meetings in Washington.


1. Griffin threw for six touchdowns in Washington's two wins over Philadelphia last season, including a perfect passer rating (158.3) in one game.

2. The Eagles lost 11 of 12 to close out last season but Vick has won his last three starts against the Redskins.

3. Washington finished last season on a seven-game win streak in its surprising run to the division title.

Monday Night Football: Texans at Chargers

Houston Texans at San Diego Chargers (+3.5, 44.5)

The Houston Texans are taking the Super Bowl-or-bust approach while the San Diego Chargers are entering a rebuilding phase under first-year coach Mike McCoy. The Texans open the season against the host Chargers on the Monday night stage and believe last season’s franchise-best 12-4 record – and a playoff victory for the second straight campaign – has set the state for a deep postseason run. San Diego has missed the playoffs in each of the last three seasons.

Houston signed perennial Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed as a free agent to shore up the back end and he is a game-time decision after having offseason hip surgery. Defensive end J.J. Watt racked up a league-leading 20 1/2 sacks last season in a stellar performance that earned him NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors. The Chargers cleaned house after last season’s disappointing showing by firing coach Norv Turner and general A.J. Smith and hiring McCoy and new general manager Tom Telesco.

LINE: The Texans opened as 3-point road faves which has been bet up to 3.5.

WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the low-70s with partly cloudy skies in San Diego. Wind will blow from the W towards the east end zone at 6 mph.
ABOUT THE TEXANS (2012: 12-4, first AFC South): Inside linebacker Brian Cushing is healthy after suffering a season-ending knee injury early last season and Houston recently rewarded him with a six-year, $55.6 million extension. The Texans allowed 225.8 passing yards per game in 2012 and the belief is that Reed’s ball-hawking presence should further bolster a unit that ranked seventh in total defense (323.3). Quarterback Matt Schaub topped 4,000 passing yards for the third time in four seasons and Andre Johnson (112 receptions for a career-best 1,598 yards) surpassed 1,500 yards for the third time in his stellar career. Running back Arian Foster (1,424 yards, 15 touchdowns) has been bothered by back and calf woes in training camp and could be spelled by Ben Tate.

ABOUT THE CHARGERS (2012: 7-9, second AFC West): Quarterback Philip Rivers has been turnover-prone the past two seasons with 47 miscues (35 interceptions, 12 lost fumbles) and his 3,606 passing yards last season represented his lowest output since 2007. Injury-prone Ryan Mathews (707 yards) is the prime running back and top wideout Malcom Floyd (56 receptions) missed most of the preseason with a knee injury. Safety Eric Weddle (team-high 111 tackles) is one of the best at his position and the leader of a defense that is being rebuilt. The Chargers are hoping veteran pass rusher Dwight Freeney (107.5 career sacks) has something left in the tank.


* The Texans are 0-5 ATS in their last five Monday games.
* The Chargers are 0-4 ATS in their last four home games.
* The under is 14-6 in the Chargers last 20 home games.
* The Texans are 0-4 ATS in their last four meetings.


1. San Diego has won all four previous meetings, the most recent being a 29-23 victory in Houston in 2010.

2. The Texans were 7-0 last season when Foster rushed for 100 or more yards.

3. Rivers was sacked a league-high 49 times last season and fumbled 15 times, losing seven.

Week 1 MNF Doubleheader
By Kevin Rogers

Eagles at Redskins (-3½, 52)

Washington won the NFC East title in Robert Griffin III's fantastic rookie season, but the Redskins' quarterback suffered a torn ACL in the Wild Card loss to Seattle. After months of rehabilitation, RG3 is back under center as the 'Skins try to defend their division crown against a Philadelphia club that is seeking an identity change after a 4-12 campaign.

The Eagles have transitioned from Andy Reid to Chip Kelly to patrol the sidelines, but Philadelphia still possesses three major weapons on offense with Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, and DeSean Jackson. Philadelphia started 2-0 last season, but the Eagles won just two of their final 14 contests, while Vick took the field only once in the last seven games.

Vick didn't face the Redskins in 2012, as rookie Nick Foles stood under center for the Eagles. Washington swept Philadelphia, as the first victory came at FedEx Field in a 31-6 blowout last November. The Redskins cashed easily as 3½-point favorites, while Griffin completed 14 of 15 passes for 200 yards and four touchdowns. The Eagles accumulated just 257 yards of offense, while Foles threw a pair of interceptions in the loss.
Washington beat Philadelphia for a second time five weeks later at Lincoln Financial Field, 27-20 as 4½-point away favorites. The Redskins overcame an early Eagles' touchdown to score 13 unanswered points, while Griffin tossed a pair of touchdowns in the win. Mike Shanahan's club covered all six meetings with division foes last season, while winning five times (lone loss came to Giants, 27-23).

Griffin didn't take part in the preseason, but Washington didn't mind by putting together a 4-0 SU/ATS mark in exhibition play. For what it's worth, the Redskins won their final three preseason games by double-digits, including home victories over the Steelers and Bills. The Eagles split their four preseason contests, but did win the "dress rehearsal" game at Jacksonville in Week 3 by a 31-24 count.

Brand new NFL head coaches put together a 1-4 SU and 3-2 ATS record on Sunday, as Kelly is one of two coaches to make their debut on Monday (San Diego's Mike McCoy the other). The Eagles covered only two of their final 11 games last season, but Philadelphia compiled a 3-2 ATS record in the road underdog role.

Texans (-4, 44½) at Chargers

The chase special takes place in San Diego as the defending AFC South champion Texans head west to battle the Chargers. Houston fell in the Divisional Playoffs for the second straight season, but the Texans have started the last two seasons well by winning and covering six of their last seven September contests.

The Chargers have grossly underachieved the past three seasons by failing to qualify for the playoffs, including a 7-9 record in 2012. Norv Turner is gone, as former Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy takes over as head coach in San Diego. The Lightning Bolts have won three of their last four season openers, but are 1-3 ATS the previous four Week 1 contests at Qualcomm Stadium since 2005.

San Diego managed only two covers in eight home contests last season, while being listed as an underdog just once in a 16-13 defeat to Baltimore last November. The Chargers are marked as a home 'dog for the sixth time since 2007, as the Bolts have compiled a 3-2 ATS record, including outright wins over the Colts in '07 and '08.

Houston has profited since 2011 as an away favorite, posting a 6-3-1 ATS mark, as one of those non-covers came in a Monday night win over the Jets last October, 24-17 as 9 ½-point 'chalk.' The Texans are playing in their seventh Monday night contest in Gary Kubiak's tenure, as Houston is just 2-4 SU and 1-5 ATS, while going 0-3 ATS away from Reliant Stadium.

In case you wondering, the Texans finished the preseason at 3-1 SU/ATS, including road victories at Dallas and Minnesota. The Chargers won just one of four preseason contests, while getting blown out at home against the Seahawks and 49ers. San Diego has put together a 3-2 SU/ATS record in its last five Monday night home games, which includes blowing a 24-0 lead in a 35-24 defeat to Denver last season.
