Eagles vs Dolphins in Week 14 matchup

The Philadelphia Eagles continue their depressing 2011 campaign in Miami this week as small road underdogs against the resurgent Dolphins.

And if history repeats itself, this will be a Philly victory as they are 5-0 ATS past 5 games vs the Dolphins.

Miami meanwhile has won three straight at home after losing three straight at home to start the season. They are also 3-0 ATS (with all unders) in three games vs the NFC East this season and have been very tough lately.

Watch for Michael Vick's status, which could sway the Week 14 point spread here. Both teams seem bent on saving the job of their head coaches so the 2.5 to 3 point spread here could be right on target. The best under line and the best Eagles line were both at Bovada late Saturday.
