Analysis: Since 2002, the Eagles and Redskins have split their season series just one time (2007). That trend doesn’t bode well for a Philadelphia team that dropped the first meeting between these two squads back in early October.
However, the Eagles may have some Monday night magic on their side as they head to FedEx Field this evening. Philly is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven Monday night games, while the Redskins are just 1-4 ATS over their last five showdowns on Monday night.
Be advised that Philadelphia is 3-0 this season in games where quarterback Michael Vick played the entire four quarters. In addition, Andy Reid’s Eagles have won three of their last four games and are 3-1 on the road this season.
Prediction: Redemption for the Birds in our nation’s capital tonight.
