Washington Redskins vs Philadelphia Eagles Preview, Prediction and Pick
This season in the NFL, the NFC East rivalry games have always been interesting, and this one is no different. It's for a bit of a different reason though, as the Philadelphia Eagles are out of contention with a painful 4-10 record currently. The Washington Redskins on the other hand have been hot as of late, and they are sitting in a tie with the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys at 8-6 atop the East. The Redskins have of course been led by Robert Griffin III, but even last week when he was out with an injury, Kirk Cousins stepped up big in his place. This week, the Redskins badly need to get this win to stay atop the NFC East. Kickoff here will be at 1:00pm and the game will be played in Philadelphia.

The Redskins will be getting Robert Griffin III back, and he's proven to be one of the best rookie quarterbacks in history. He's been a leader and has made the right decisions consistently throughout his young career. It's impressive that he has this team a few wins away from a playoff berth, but they really want to get the one against the Eagles, and this is a game that's huge for them. The Skins' fans are believing yet again, and with Griffin and another rookie in Alfred Morris, they have a reason to get excited about the future here.

The Eagles have turned to Nick Foles at the quarterback position after Michael Vick suffered a concussion a few weeks back. Lesean McCoy was also out, but he should be back out there this weekend. Bryce Brown did a great job filling in at the running back position, so he should continue to get some touches as well. The Eagles suffered a tough losing streak that took them out of contention, and now they are looking to save face and end the year on a bright note. Regardless though, the Eagles are out of the playoffs and are looking at a high draft pick.

The Redskins need it, and they simply are playing better football. I'm not buying into the Eagles, and I don't think that they will be able to pull out this win on their home field. Foles has shown improvement, but it won't be enough to out do RGIII. The real issue I've seen is that the Eagles' secondary isn't living up to the hype, and they really need to get it turned around. I think that Griffin should have a huge night, and will lead this team to a nice win that could set up a week 17 match-up with the Dallas Cowboys that may decide the division. I'm going with the Redskins to win it by ten.
