Washington Redskins

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports holdout Redskins LT Trent Williams could report as early as Week 2. The word arrives via Williams' ex-teammate DeAngelo Hall, who also said last week there was "zero chance" Williams would report for the opener. Week 2 is apparently a different story. Rapsheet recently reported that Williams has been medically cleared. The 31-year-old wouldn't need many practice reps to be game ready.

Philadelphia Eagles

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) was a full participant at practice Wednesday. Goedert missed a few weeks of training camp with his injury, but the Eagles remained confident that it wasn't a serious injury. Goedert will be active for the season opener in a nice matchup at home against the Redskins. He'll be a TE2.

NFL Betting Trends

Washington

The Redskins are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games versus the NFC East.

Philadelphia

The Eagles are a perfect 5-0 against the number in their last five games overall.

Prediction

The favorite is a perfect 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams, while the Redskins have dropped four straight ATS versus the Eagles. I would love to grab the added value in taking a double-digit underdog in a divisional matchup, but I just don’t see how the Redskins stay in this one. Their offensive line is dreadful, their skill position players aren’t great and Case Keenum will start under center. While Keenum had a great run in Minnesota two years ago, he was jettisoned after only one season in Denver. What makes anyone think he’s going to perform well on the road in a hostile environment while playing in a new offense and behind a bad offensive line with no help from his skill position players?

NFL Week 1 Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles -10
