Eagles vs. Packers TNF Prediction
The Packers will look to improve to 4-0 on the season when they host a struggling Eagles team that has dropped two straight after winning its opener. Is it smart to lay the four points on the host Pack tonight or are the Eagles a better buy?

Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Spin
DeSean Jackson (groin) is out for Thursday night's Week 4 game against the Packers. As expected. Mack Hollins will take his place in the lineup alongside Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor. Hollins is an intriguing daily play on one-game slates.
Green Bay Packers Fantasy Spin
Jimmy Graham (groin) will play in Week 4 against the Eagles. Graham was a limited participant at Friday's practice but officially removed from the team's injury report. The Eagles have allowed a median rate of fantasy points per game (6.5) to tight ends, but Graham did notably strike for 3/30/1 when last healthy in Week 1. Green Bay's offense is in prime position to stack points on Thursday.
The Eagles are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games on Thursday and are 4-1 against the number in their last five road games.
The Packers have covered the spread in four of their last five games overall.
Thursday Night NFL Prediction:
The Eagles played poorly the past two weeks in Atlanta and against the Lions, respectively, but could have/should have won both games. If Nelson Agholor doesn’t drop a walk-in touchdown against the Falcons in the closing minute of the game, or several balls a week ago versus the Lions, then maybe Philly is 3-0 instead of 1-2. And what would the line be if both teams are undefeated coming into Week 4? Green Bay -3? Maybe Packers -2? I see some value in the dog tonight with the points, despite the fact that the Eagles remain banged-up offensively.
