In looking at the playoff picture it is easy to figure out for these 2 teams, as if the Redskins beat the Eagles they will win the NFC East and if the Eagles win and then win in the season finale they will take the division crown.
The Redskins have won 2 in a row and 3 of their last 4 games, but they are still a road underdog by 3 points in this game.
The Eagles had won 2 in a row to get back in the playoff picture, but were crushed at home in their last game.
Earlier this season in Washington the Redskins beat the Eagles 23-20.
In their last games the Redskins beat the Buffalo Bills 35-25 and the Eagles lost to the Arizona Cardinals 40-17.
On the season the Eagles are 3-4 at home and the Redskins are 1-5 on the road.
Kirk Cousins has played well this season and as of late has been playing great. In the win over the Bills he passed for 319 yards with 4 TD and he has no lack of great targets mainly big-play guy DeSean Jackson and TE Jordan Reed.
They will face a Philly pass defense that has issues all season and only ranks 24th in the league.
Where Philly has really striggled on D this season is against the run, ranking 30th in the league, and they will face a Washington team that has been running well as of late and Alfred Morris had a solid game in the win over Buffalo, which has been a rare occurance this season.
Cousins has to avoid the INT in this game, as in their 7 wins he has 1 pick and in their 7 losses he has 10.
The Eagles committed 4 turnovers in the loss to the Cardinals and while QB Sam Bradford passed for 361 yards he was picked off twice.
He does not have a great WR corps, even though Jordan Matthews had a big game in the loss to Arizona, and Washington ranks in the middle of the pack (14th) in pass defense and they gave up some big plays in the air in the win over Buffalo.
Washington only ranks 28th in run defense, but can the Eagles take advantage of that? DeMarco Murray has been a no show for much of the season and in the loss to Arizona they only had 74 rushing yards.
Getting to Cousins will be key for the Eagles, who rank 16th in the league in sacks.
