Who's picking the Eagles?

After taking a look at who people are picking for Sunday's Eagles-Steelers game, it's clear that the Birds impressed the national media with their Monday night performance, despite the 41-37 loss to the Cowboys. Before we get to the picks though, don't forget that I'll be hosting a live, in-game chat during the game. And without further ado, here's a look at who people are picking... Les Bowen of the Daily News has the Eagles winning a low-scoring game, 16-14. Vegas Vic has the Eagles covering the three-point spread. Paul Domowitch of the Daily News predicts a 24-13 Eagles win. SI.com's Peter King likes the Eagles, 30-21: Love this game. How can you not? After watching the Eagles Monday night, you get the impression that Donovan McNabb's as healthy and energetic and as full of B-12 as he's ever been, so I don't worry about a couple of hard hits from LaMarr Woodley. I think McNabb takes a few shots and comes back strong. Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com has the Eagles winning, 23-17: The Eagles are coming off a tough, emotional loss on Monday, which means a short week. That's not the ideal way to get ready for the Steelers. The Steelers did play a Sunday night game, which means they aren't fully rested. The Eagles looked shaky on defense against the Cowboys, but they turn it around here and slow down the Steelers. All five members of ESPN Sunday Countdown pre-game show pick the Eagles. Other ESPN experts are split. Four pick the Eagles, and four pick the Steelers. Three of five CBSSports.com experts like the Eagles to cover. Five out of six FoxSports.com experts pick the Eagles. Seven of eight USA Today experts like the Eagles.
