The Philadelphia Eagles should be the favorite against the Redskins at home on Sunday. Defending NFC East champion playing against a team that finished in last place with a 3-13 record in 2013. That will be playing their backup QB in Kirk Cousins tomorrow. So that it the outside picture of that matchup looking in. But we are talking about a Redskins team that matches up very well with the Eagles especially offensively. The Eagles defense is weak against the run and gives up big pass plays. The Redskins play better offensively with Kirk Cousins than Robert Griffin at QB.
The Redskins defensively get after the quarterback and can do it with multiple people up front and are solid against the run at least so far. Not ready to pick the Redskins in this game, but they have the formula to beat the Eagles because of what they do on offense and how they play against the run and can get after the QB to make Eagles QB Nick Foles have a long day. If the Redskins take care of the ball, play their coverages and make their tackles, I could see them winning a very close game late in the fourth quarter.
