Will the Packers break string of losses in Philadelphia?

Steve Lawrence, Correspondent
Season prediction record: 6-4
Packers 17, Eagles 13
Comment: Brett Favre to Donald Driver is a better combination than Mike McMahon to Brian Westbrook.

Season prediction record: 5-5
Eagles 13, Packers 9
Comment: No Donovan McNabb. No Terrell Owens. Still no problem for the Eagles defense who will keep the Packers out of the end zone and continue the misery in Green Bay.

Eagles 24, Packers 14
Comment: This will be a game between two battered teams but the Eagles have more to play for with a slim chance of winning their division. Though Donovan McNabb is out, Mike McMahon is a capable, athletic veteran quarterback and he gave the Packers fits when he played for the Lions. Plus, the Eagles are at home and they have the T.O. mess behind them.

Packers 24, Eagles 20
Comment: I've been stinking recently in predicting games, but here it goes: For some reason the Packers will roll into Philly and win this game. Why? Who knows? But the Eagles don't have Donovan McNabb or Terrell "There Is an 'I' in Team the Way Spell It" Owens, and that should be what gets the Packers their third win ... I guess.

Comment: This week the Eagles will win because they are playing angry and if Mike Tice can out-coach Mike Sherman, what will Andy Reid do?

Comment: One thing is for sure, as long as Favre is taking snaps the Packers are trying to win every game. No laying down for draft picks, so all you Reggie Bush fans out there don't be so content he'll be wearing the Green and Gold next year.

Packers 24, Eagles 20
Comment: With a number of young players in the lineup, expect a roller coaster ride the rest of the way for the Packers. On this Sunday, I feel the Packers will bounce back from their disappointing loss to Minnesota and beat the Eagles. I'll take Brett Favre over Mike McMahon any day.

Packers 24, Eagles 21
Comment: One big difference with all the injuries to both teams is the Pack still has Favre and Eagles are without McNabb.

Comment: I will sail this sinking ship until it goes under. Without McNabb, the Eagles are ripe for an upset. On the other hand, the Bumbling, Stumbling Packers are just what the Eagles need to turn things around. Who knows? Anyone who says they do is either dumb or a liar.

Eagles 21, Packers 20
Comment: It's sad to not pick the Pack when they're playing a Philly team without McNabb and Owens, but that's kind of what it's come down to this year. Driver is the only consistent playmaker Favre has and when he's covered, all bets are off. But this team hasn't given up all year, which means they should be in this one with at least a chance to pull it out.

Packers 20, Eagles 13
Comment: The Eagles don't have QB Donovan McNabb or WR Terrell Owens. I'm sure the Packers secondary is elated about that. The Packers owe the Eagles after getting drilled last year in Philly and also after losing the heartbreaking 4th and 26 game during the 2003 playoffs in the City of Brotherly Love. The Packers must establish the running game like they did in Atlanta and they must also get the ball to TE Bubba Franks more. Defensively, the Packers have to control RB Brian Westbrook.

Comment: The Packers beat a good team on the road in Atlanta, so winning in Philly is not impossible. In order to accomplish that holiday miracle, they are going to have to avoid the second-half swoon before it becomes a habit.

Packers 35, Eagles 23
Comment: The Packers will finally break the losing streak in Philly after not winning there since 1962. The Pack's running game will look good again and the defense will step up and finish the game like they did in Atlanta. The absence of T.O. and McNabb will be a great factor.
