Bills Host Favored Eagles

The Bills might be the worst 3-1 team in recent memory, while the Eagles might be the best 1-3 team.

But when you look at one key stat, it's not really surprising. The Eagles have not won a turnover battle yet this season and are minus 6 while the Bills have won that battle four times and are plus 7.

Had you looked at this game on the schedule last month, you would have bet the Eagles would be 10-point chalk, but they opened at just 3 and have been bet down already.
