Washington Redskins vs. Philadelphia Eagles Betting Odds
The Redskins turned in a 7-9 record last season to finish 3rd in the NFC East. Naturally, Washington failed to qualify for postseason play. All in all this marked the 3rd straight season that Washington failed to make the playoff cut. Considering they had gone and picked up Alex Smith during the offseason, it’s safe to say that Washington was pretty disappointed in with how things turned out last year. Nevertheless, this team still has plenty of talent to be a threat in the NFC East next season. The division is far from easy but Washington can get an early start in the race by picking up a Week 1 win over their NFC East rivals.
Players to Watch: Alex Smith (2,180 passing yards, 10 TD, 5 INT), Adrian Peterson (1,042 rushing yards, 7 TD, 2 F), and Jordan Reed (558 receiving yards, 2 TD, 54 REC).
The Eagles flew to a 9-7 record last season that saw them finish 2nd in the NFC East. Although they won the league the previous season, Philly failed to come out as strong. One of the biggest reasons they stuttered was due to the fact that they had to start the season with Nick Foles. Although Foles had been brilliant for them in the lead up and in the Super Bowl itself, he wasn’t the force Philly needed behind center. Once Wentz made his way back into the starting lineup, the Eagles would go on to bolster their postseason standing.
Players to Watch: Carson Wentz (3,074 passing yards, 21 TD, 7 INT), Josh Adams (511 rushing yards, 3 TD, 1 F), and Zach Ertz (1,163 receiving yards, 8 TD, 116 REC).
