I see that the Eagles are not playing this week

I see that the Eagles are not playing this week. That can only mean one thing - that some team forfeited the game.

The team that forfeited, which for some reason I can't find the news story yet on the internet, but I'll keep searching, no doubt feared getting stomped by the 8-1 Eagles, which happens to be the best record in the NFL.

Please, no disparaging remarks about the team that forfeited. Have mercy on them and show some sympathy. It actually was the wise move, rather than risk the humiliation of getting taken behind the woodshed by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Hopefully next week the opposing team won't forfeit, and will show-up to receive their expected beat down.

    That should be one heckuva football game.

    I hoping the Eagles get payback for the Super Bowl loss. But Andy Reid certainly knows how to keep his team motivated.

    It’s weird because the Chiefs defense has been carrying the offense this year. It’s like going back to the Schottenheimer years.
    But Mahomes has said publicly that they are going to get the offense figured out.
    It’s a Monday night game, all I can wish you is that your team suffers no injuries.

    Jalen Hurts is going to need to bring his A game to this one. No costly fumbles or interceptions, or it could get ugly.

    I don't bet the games, but i still enjoy trying to figure the lines for the fun of it. I just now contemplated the line and thought it would be Chiefs -5 1/2. I just looked, and it turns out the early line is Chiefs -2 1/2. I'm not usually off by that much on an Eagles game.

    But thinking about it right now, perhaps the books are giving the Eagles some points for the rest coming off the bye week?

    Dam, now i just noticed the Chiefs will also be coming off a bye week.

    Well the books then are figuring in something that I'm not seeing. Perhaps the offense "problem" that you mentioned with the Chiefs is factoring into it?

    Interesting you should mention that. I've never done this but I've looked into it, a good friend of mine does fairly well at flipping concert tickets. He tries to anticipate demand for an upcoming concert, and depending on the seat, sees it as a flip opportunity. He will buy the ticket, usually a set of two tickets, off StubHub or one of those venues, and immediately relist at a higher price. Not every flip try is a winner, but he has had some very nice scores.

    He's done the same with sports tickets. A few times he's tried to anticipate how a team will do for the season, and buy a group of late season tickets, and it the team is doing well, then he does quite well with the flip due to the higher demand. However with this type of flip attempt, he's has some bad losers as well, because if the team doesn't do well, those end of season tickets are basically worthless.
