The Eagles can take a breath after getting their first win of the season last week. They are definitely still in the race despite their own turmoils.
Washington has the same record but their outlook is not nearly as good. Sorry Skins fans.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET with the Eagles looking to get to .500 for the season and perhaps into a tie with Dallas atop the division.
The Eagles were on the road at the Jets last week and got a much needed victory. They zoomed out to a 24-0 lead and then held on for 24-17 win.
Even though they avoided the disaster of an 0-3 start thngs are far from perfect with the Eagles.
After three weeks the team is 30th in rushing offense and their leading rusher is Darren Sproles.
I love the little guy but this team invested heavily in DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews. So far those investments are not paying off.
I am not an expert but those who are say the Eagles have one of the worst offensive lines in football.
There is little evidence to contradict that at the moment.
On defense the Eagles have been good against the rush, yielding just 87 ypg. That is good because that is where the Redskins are stronger but that might not be a great indicator as they are very weak against the pass.
This Eagles team should win but they are going to have to do more than just show up.
After a surprise win over the Rams in Week two the Redskins looked as expected in losing to the New York Giants last Thursday night.
The early slot gives them a little more time to prepare for this one but I am not sure how much it will help.
Last season the Redskins played the Eagles well, splitting the two games and covering in both. Kirk Cousins had one of his best days as a pro, shredding the Eagles secondary for 427 yards in the loss and they might need something similar again.
Washington should be able to run the ball though and they will want to to keep the pace of the game manageable.
The key in this one will be getting off to a good start.
If the Eagles get their rhythm going they can put a game out of reach quickly so the Redskins will have to be better than the Jets were in the first half last week.
