Is anyone picking the Eagles?

Here's our weekly look at who the experts are picking in Sunday's Eagles-Ravens game: The Daily News' Paul Domowitch likes the Eagles, 24-20. Les Bowen of the Daily News goes with the Ravens, 16-13. SI.com's Peter King has the Ravens winning, 22-20: Andy Reid calls over Donovan McNabb just before kickoff and says, "Just wanted to alert you - we're playing four quarters today. Sixty minutes. I'm going to do everything in my power to not get us into overtime because I don't want you to be mentally taxed with such a difficult concept." CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco likes the Ravens, 24-20: This should be a physical war. The Eagles are almost in survival mode, while the Ravens are coming off a stinging loss to the Giants in which they were pushed around. That doesn't happen twice to the Ravens and the Eagles are playing the second of back-to-back road games. Ravens take it. CBSSPorts.com's Harmon Forecast goes with the Ravens, 19-17: Eagles QB Donovan McNabb is coming off a bad performance. McNabb had four turnovers, including three interceptions. McNabb will test a Ravens defense that only recorded one sack against the Giants. Ravens QB Joe Flacco faces an Eagles defense that sacked Ryan Fitzpatrick eight times. Three of five ESPN Sunday Countdown experts like the Ravens. Three of five CBSSports.com experts pick the Ravens to cover the 1.5-point spread. Four of six FoxSports.com experts like the Ravens. Five of eight USA Today experts go with the Ravens. All three Yahoo Sports experts like the Ravens. Four of seven Baltimore Sun writers pick the Ravens. And finally, one Baltimore Sun columnist has some fun at Donovan McNabb's expense with this video.
