Philadelphia Eagles at Redskins: Staff predictions

Posted September 11, 2017

Terrelle Pryor almost joined the Philadelphia Eagles before signing with the Washington Redskins on the first day of free agency.

This week, I'm writing these from the Poconos. We're better than that at receiver-dropping balls-and we're better than that at quarterback.

But that was the preseason.

This is an interesting match up between two teams seemingly headed in opposite directions. Actually, it might be a little low. The Redskins safety play is suspect, especially with Su'a Cravens unexpected departure from the team within the last week. Doctson, who missed all but two games during his rookie year as a first-rounder in 2016, wasn't targeted against the Eagles.

In the offseason, the Eagles offense improved.

REDSKINS DOMINANCE: The previous time the Eagles beat Washington, Chip Kelly was the toast of the town and Nick Foles was the starting quarterback. The Birds have to be better in the back end or they'll get carved up, especially with Darby out. Offenses simply threw away from him and Washington ended near the bottom of the barrel in most defensive categories.

I also predicted a 27-23 Eagles' win in our predictions, so I'm sticking with that number.

Drive summary: The Redskins got on the board on a defensive touchdown.

"Without a doubt, I want to use my platform to make a difference [in] peoples' lives", he said.

The interception, coming at a key moment in a divisional game, had echoes of last year's season finale against the New York Giants, when Cousins also struggled to take command of the game. You guys see it.

I was torn on this one, so I'm going to side with my cousin. It's okay. A victory is a victory, but another road game is on the horizon before the Eagles have their home opener. And why Washington's offensive line needs to knock off the rust quickly.

Still, the Eagles got just enough from the reserves to pull things out. The Agholor touchdown was on third-and-12.

"At the end of those games we were right there", Wentz said. They'll instead be throwing a lot of bodies on the field early in the season to see what sticks.

From that first game in 1934 until November, 1942 the Eagles won a total of two games over the Redskins. "I'm a part of a great wide receiving corps that works hard every game". He picked the topic; he set the line.

"Any time you lose, that basically means that the other team played harder".

The NFC East figures to be a hotly contested division in the National Football League this season so all matchups between the four teams will be of the utmost importance, starting with an opening one between Philadelphia and Washington.

The offensive line, meanwhile, played just 19 game snaps together, and it is a line with a relatively new starter in Isaac Seumalo at left guard.

Well, you can't win them all until you win the first one.

If their play in the preseason was any indication, I think they'll hit the over.

Former NFL vice president of officiating Mike Pereira, now a broadcaster on Fox Sports, said during the game that he would have overturned the call.

In case you forgot, this is what happened the last time they met... "Besides Jason Peters. He's really good at being a technician".
