There is one statistic that is extremely hard to believe, but when making selections for survivor and confidence leagues it could be the most important statistic of this NFL weekend.  Your stat of the week is that Andy Reid is 13-0 in his first game following the bye week.  Yes, under Reid the Eagles have been very good for a long time including reaching four consecutive NFC Championship games and one Super Bowl, but 13-0 in any stat in the NFL is hard to believe and good to know leading into Week #8.  I would even put this in a lock of the week if it wasn’t for the fact that it’s the 6-0 Atlanta Falcons visiting Lincoln Financial Stadium this Sunday to stop one of sports unique stats of the 2000’s.

No Brainer Survivior Pick

If you haven’t used them, the Green Bay Packers at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars is as easy as slow pitch softball in survivor league action!

The Stat Game

Philly over the Falcons.  Atlanta keeps every game close regardless,  Vick will not fumble away this victory.

Road Pick With Very Little Jitters?
