A Browns-Eagles preview
Philly Daily News NFL columnist Paul Domowitch always has a nice preview on the Eagletarian blog. I've seen enough Browns football this season to know they can be decent on defense at times. If there's a silver lining to the Browns' 4-9 record, it's that the secondary has played really well. The Browns are second in the league in causing turnovers -- and the New York Giants can attest to that.
For whatever reason, the Browns have become the darlings of "Monday Night Football" and they're 2-0 on that night in 2008.
Domowitch also makes another great point: Eagles kicker David Akers has had three kicks blocked this season, two of which have been brought back for touchdowns. Browns defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is one of the best in the league at blocking kicks. In fact, he's the league's active leader with 12 during his career.
I think the Eagles will pull this thing out, but it won't be easy. The Ken Dorsey factor is what makes me feel good about the Eagles' chances.
