Monday Night NFL Betting – Can Redskins Bark As A Home Dog?
The first time Donovan McNabb had a shot at his former team, the Washington Redskins not only walked into Philadelphia and beat the Eagles, they knocked out their starting quarterback Michael Vick. This time, Vick has his own revenge to exact as the Eagles visit FedEx Field.

How Can Philadelphia Win?
Stop making mistakes. The Eagles lost the first matchup because of untimely penalties and later in the game, costly turnovers.
This time around, if they play smart, they should win the game.
The Washington Redskins are just a vanilla team that plays smart. They tend to live off of the turnovers of their opponents and if they don’t get that lifeline, they struggle.
When you boil the two teams down talent-wise, the Eagles have the better playmakers virtually everywhere. Their offense can be explosive with Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy. The Redskins don’t have this type of firepower so if the Eagles play smart, the contest is theirs to lose.
How Can Washington Win?
They stymied the Eagles once, so why not a second time? Not many people want to admit it but when it comes to x’s and o’s on the field, Mike Shanahan is a better head coach than Andy Reid and it showed in the first meeting.
The Redskins just do things the right way – kind of opposite of the Eagles. The Redskins run the ball, play smart and limit the opportunities of their opponents. Now if they can limit the big plays for a second straight meeting, the Redskins will be in great shape.
The Indianapolis Colts proved that very point last week. The Eagles carved them up for a few big plays but when the game turned nitty-gritty, the Eagles struggled. The Eagles picked up 418 yards of total offense but four plays went for 30 yards or longer (62, 58, 32, 22). On the Eagles other 56 plays, the Eagles averaged just 4.4 yards per play.
The common belief this week is that the Eagles are out to get revenge but why not stick with the trend? The Eagles live and die by the big play, and the Redskins already know this. More importantly, they have had a bye week to prepare for this.
On offense, there has been much clamoring about their quarterback Donovan McNabb, but expect a big bounce-back effort from him after a tough loss in Detroit.
Home underdogs always come to play on Monday Night Football, so stick with the Redskins here.
