NN Week 13 Prediction Contest: 49ers look for revenge against Eagles

The 49ers and Brock Purdy have been waiting for another shot at the Eagles.

The San Francisco 49ers have been waiting a long time for another opportunity against the Philadelphia Eagles. The presumptive top two teams in the NFC are slated to face off for the first time since last season’s NFC Championship game on Sunday as the Niners head to Philadelphia. A 49ers victory would give them a far better opportunity of securing the top seed in the conference and a BYE in the playoffs. A loss, on the other hand, would give Philadelphia a much easier path to the top seed.

Due to our sponsorship with Tallysight, we have to pick every game. But, as usual, we’ll narrow it down to six for you at the bottom. Odds for all the games are available on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Here are Marc’s picks for this week’s slate of games:

Seahawks over Cowboys: The Cowboys have taken care of business against bad teams all season, but flopped against the great ones. The Seahawks, a flawed, but solid team will be an interesting test. Dallas should win easily, but the implied odds of +330 is too favorable for me to pass up Seattle.

Chargers over Patriots: Brandon Staley could ensure his firing if he loses to New England this week, but the best thing going for the Patriots this season is the prospect of Caleb Williams.

Titans over Colts: The Titans are slight underdogs at home and Gardner Minshew has been playing too erratically for me to roll with Indy.

Dolphins over Commanders: The Dolphins should have no problem taking care of Washington.

Lions over Saints: The Saints still have a chance at the postseason because of a weak schedule, but the Lions are one of the few top teams remaining. They just aren’t on the same level.

Cardinals over Steelers: The Cardinals are a trainwreck as an organization, but Kyler Murray has proven to be as explosive as ever. The Steelers are a well-rounded team, but I’m not comfortable trusting Kenny Pickett enough to pass on +200.

Jets over Falcons: Asking the Falcons to go into New York is a tall task. The Jets offense remains a mess, but I think they end their losing streak this weekend.

Texans over Broncos: This is a vote of confidence in Houston that made me nervous. Denver has been trending in the right direction, but I’m leaning with the home field advantage.

Bucs over Panthers: Tampa Bay has been bad. The Panthers have been worse.

Eagles over 49ers: I’d lean toward the 49ers in a toss up neutral-site game, but the Eagles are underdogs in Philadelphia.

Rams over Browns: The Rams have been one of the most inconsistent teams in the league this season, and have been the hardest for me to pin down.

Kansas City over Packers: Jordan Love may have finally turned a corner, but it’s not an insult to say I’m not worried about him topping Mahomes just yet.

Jaguars over Bengals: Cincy may be lucky to win one more game all season with Joe Burrow sidelined.

Here are the six games to pick (times in Pacific):

Falcons @ Jets, 10:00 AM

Colts @ Titans, 10:00 AM

Broncos @ Texans, 10:00 AM

49ers @ Eagles, 1:25 PM

Browns @ Rams, 1:25 PM

Kansas City @ Green Bay, 5:15 PM
