The term “Money Down” in football is another name for third down. This is the down that needs to be converted if teams want to succeed. The Money Down is important because it is the difference between winning and losing. For people who like to bet on football, information is the Money Down.

Philadelphia Eagles: Even Better Offense?
The Philadelphia Eagles and Chip Kelly burst on the scene a year ago with an explosive offense that took everyone by storm. Could they be even better this year? The best offensive threat on the team, running back LeSean McCoy is aiming high.
LeSean McCoy in true prime at age 26, has top-3 o-line, in run-first scheme. Dropped lbs, looks ‘better than ever.” http://t.co/WpnYXPKanT

LeSean McCoy recently said he was aiming to rush for 2,000 yds this season. Chip Kelly was asked his for thoughts: “I don’t care.”

From a betting stand point, it will be interesting to see how this offense does now that other teams will be expecting it. Chip Kelly will have his offense ready so expect high totals on this high-flying team.
New England Patriots: Defensive Trades
The Patriots made two trades that may have gone unnoticed yesterday, but it could also signify a problem. The concern for potential injuries on the front line is real so the Patriots are stocking up with depth on the D-Line.

Dallas Cowboys: Romo is Ready
Handicapping the preseason is never easy, but it is very important to figure out who will play and for how long they will be on the field. It may only be week two of the preseason, but Tony Romo will take the field.
For first time since his back surgery in December, Cowboys QB Tony Romo will play a game Saturday night: http://t.co/seLSf6w5SP

Romo is still recovering from back surgery so his playing time will be limited. The rumor is that his surgery would affect his deep passing.

However Romo is using his camp workouts to put that rumor to rest.
Tony Romo is uncorking the deep ball today with some very good accuracy. Just hit Williams, who made the diving catch way down field.

Tony Romo threw a perfect deep ball to Dez who made the catch despite having Scandrick all over him.

Cleveland Browns: Manziel Mania About the Money?
The Cleveland Browns are not doing the team any favors by waiting to announce the starting QB. New coach Mike Pettine is letting it all play out.

You have to wonder if this is a football decision or a money decision.

Seattle Seahawks: Trouble in Paradise
When you are the defending Super Bowl Champions you have plenty of distractions. However for running back Marhsawn Lynch, the latest distraction is very serious as he is under investigation for an alleged assault.
— NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) August 11, 2014
The Seahawks are going out of their way to defend Lynch and after their own investigation they have spoken out about the allegations, which is rare in this day and age.
