NFL Betting Online Odds:
The Redskins fly into this Monday Night Football matchup sporting a 6-5 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the NFC East. Midway through the season, Washington found themselves atop the division and continued to build on their lead as the season progressed. Unfortunately, that all went downhill with Alex Smiths’ gruesome injury. Now sitting on a 1-3 record in their last 4 games, it’s looking like Washington’s season-long efforts will now crumble beneath them. Right now the 7-5 Dallas Cowboys lead the division and will certainly be a problem for Washington moving forward. This will be the first time this season Washington has faced Philly. Without their veteran quarterback leading the charge, the Redskins are at a severe disadvantage.
Players to Watch: Colt McCoy (2,180 passing yards, 10 TD, 5 INT), Adrian Peterson (758 rushing yards, 6 TD, 2 F), and Jordan Reed (537 receiving yards, 2 TD, 50 REC).
The Eagles enter this Week 13 matchup sporting a 5-6 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the NFC East. Although they entered the season as the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Eagles have failed to live up to those expectations in 2018. Although they still have a shot at the playoffs, it’s not looking like they’ll be able to put up the numbers required to sneak into the postseason. And even if they do, the Eagles haven’t demonstrated much to suggest they’re capable of going all the way to the Super Bowl. They should however, be able to take care of the Alex Smith-less Redskins at home this evening.
Players to Watch: Carson Wentz (2,540 passing yards, 16 TD, 6 INT), Josh Adams (291 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and Zach Ertz (895 receiving yards, 6 TD, 84 REC).
