Oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag have installed the Patriots as 9-point home favorites over the Eagles, who are 4-7 on the season and 4-7 against the spread. New England, meanwhile, is 10-1 after losing last Sunday night in Denver, and is 5-4-1 against the spread this season.

Losing Rob Gronkowsi is significant because it changes the way opponents are forced to defend the Patriots. Philadelphia has struggled mightily defensively over the past few weeks but without having to worry about Gronk, the Eagles don't have to commit numbers disadvantages in efforts to slow the tight end down.

Another key injury that could keep this game closer than many expect is the one suffered by linebacker Dont'a Hightower. Once he left last Sunday's game with a knee injury, the Broncos had more success attacking New England's defense on the ground.

The Eagles' running game has been grounded for most of the season but if Chip Kelly's offense can establish some sort of a rhythm today, it's still dangerous. Take the points with several key components out for the Pats.
