Line: Oakland -1 vs. Philadelphia — O/U 45.5

The Eagles have been a tricky team to read all year, and the return of Nick Foles following a concussion doesn’t simplify the analysis. They need to get back to their bread and butter: the run game with LeSean McCoy, even if that means playing into the Raiders strength. Terrelle Pryor rushed for more yards on the first play from scrimmage last week (93) than he passed for the entire game (88). Still, the big play potential is always there with him and Run DMC in the backfield together. I have no idea what’s going to happen.

Prediction: 21-20 Oakland
