OUR PREDICTION: The Eagles have a horrible track record of success when playing the Redskins. They're 0-6 against the spread in their last six games against the Redskins and 1-4 against the number in their last five games in Washington. That said, in both of Washington's wins over Philadelphia last season, Eagles' right tackle Lane Johnson was suspended. The Eagles struggled offensively as a whole when Johnson went out, and I'm confident Carson Wentz and his new weapons (Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith) will move the ball against a Redskins defense that won't drum up much of a pass-rush this season. Kirk Cousins will have his moments, but I'm rolling the dice the Eagles get off the schnide versus the Redskins.
