BOOKER BACK TO THE BENCH

With Correll Buckhalter returning from a knee injury, running back Lorenzo Booker was once again among the Eagles' inactives for tonight's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Coach Andy Reid's decision not to dress Booker meant that running back Kyle Eckel was activated for the third straight game. Eckel converted a couple of third-and-one situations in the Eagles' games against Arizona and the New York Giants, and it'll be interesting to see if he continues to get the call on those plays against the Browns.

Wide receiver Reggie Brown also was deactivated for the second straight game.

THE PICK

The Eagles can't afford to lose another game and they shouldn't lose to the Browns. Can they cover the 14-point spread?

Yes.

Eagles 34, Browns 10
