Nobody was more surprised by the Eagles’ easy 29-10 victory over the Browns on Sunday than the Vegas linemakers, who in their infinite wisdom came up with this final line:
EAGLES (-3.5) vs. Cleveland
This was also looking 50-50 until early in the third quarter.
With the Eagles leading 13-10 (but not in excess of the 3.5-point spread), a snap went over Robert Griffin III’s head and out of the end zone, giving the Eagles a safety, putting them over the spread; they added two TDs to complete the rout.
Rookie QB Carson Wentz was a solid 22-for-37 for 278 yards, with two touchdowns and no picks in his debut.
