The Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins meet Sunday in week 15 NFL action at FedEx Field.
The Philadelphia Eagles look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Philadelphia Eagles have lost four of their last six road games. Carson Wentz is completing 62.8 percent of his passes for 3,165 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Wentz has two or more touchdown passes in 14 of his last 23 games. Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery have combined for 1,317 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Dallas Goedert has 40 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 118.7 yards per contest, and Miles Sanders leads the way with 565 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 23.2 points and 326.7 yards per game. Rodney McLeod leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 64 tackles, Brandon Graham has 7.5 sacks and Nathan Gerry has two interceptions.
The Washington Redskins need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Washington Redskins have lost four of their last five home games. Dwayne Haskins is completing 55 percent of his passes for 971 yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions. Case Keenum and Haskins have combined for 12 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Terry McLaurin and Chris Thompson have combined for 1,037 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Kelvin Harmon has 20 receptions.

The Eagles are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC East. The Redskins are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Eagles last 5 games overall. The under is 8-2 in Redskins last 10 games overall. The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
The Philadelphia Eagles are fighting for their playoff lives, but we've been saying that for months, and that hasn't stopped them from losing three of their last four games and needing overtime to beat the Giants at home. The Washington Redskins have found ways to win two of their last three games, and they just took the Packers down to the wire on the road. You can't lay points with the Eagles with any confidence, as the team is banged up to all hell and they're not playing well. I'll take the free touchdown with the Redskins at home.
