WASHINGTON: Whether it’s RGIII or Kirk Cousins under center, the Redskins just keep on winning. Following their 38-21 victory over the Browns last Sunday, Washington has now won five straight games. Cousins completed 26-of-37 passes for 329 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in his first NFL start. He also rushed three times for 22 yards while showing his mobility. Alfred Morris rushed for 87 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries while Pierre Garcon added six catches for 65 yards receiving and Lenard Hankerson caught both of his receptions for touchdowns. The win improved Washington’s record to 8-6 overall and lifted the Redskins into first place in the NFC East. But with Dallas and New York also sitting at 8-6, Washington needs to keep winning if it wants to clinch one of the top four spots in the NFC playoff picture.

PHILADELPHIA: One week after their dramatic come-from-behind victory over the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay, the Eagles were back to their excruciating ways in a 34-13 loss to the Bengals last Thursday night. Rookie quarterback Nick Foles completed 16-of-33 passes for 182 yards with one touchdown and one interception, while Bryce Brown rushed for 34 yards on 16 carries. Jeremy Maclin caught four passes for 73 yards while Jason Avant finished with three catches for 44 yards. The loss dropped Philadelphia to 4-10 overall and 3-10-1 against the spread as the Eagles have now failed to cover in seven of their last nine games.

ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Redskins are 6-point road favorites over the Eagles while the over/under total is currently sitting at 44.5 points. Washington enters the week with an 8-6 overall record and is 4-3 on the road, while Philadelphia is 4-10 overall and 2-5 at home.

TRENDS: The favorite is 4-0 against the spread in their last four meetings between these two teams while the road team is 8-3-1 against the number in the last 12 meetings overall. The under is 4-1-1 in the last six games between these two teams in Philadelphia and 3-1-1 in the last five meetings overall. The Redskins are also 4-1 against the spread in their lat five trips to Philadelphia.
