The Line: Washington Redskins +6 -- Over/Under: 40.5
The Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins meet in NFL action from FedEx Field on Sunday.
The Eagles come into this one at 6-7 overall. Philly had a three-game losing streak going versus the Patriots, Seahawks and Dolphins but posted a victory over New York on Monday.
In the OT win over the Giants, Philadelphia QB Carson Wentz put up 325 yards and two TDs, while Boston Scott rushed for 59 yards and a score. Zach Ertz posted 91 yards and two scores on nine receptions there as well.
Over on the Redskins’ side, they’re 3-10 so far. Washington recorded consecutive wins over the Lions 19-16 and the Panthers 29-21, but fell in their last outing to the Packers 20-15.
In the loss to Green Bay, Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins put up 170 yards, a TD and an INT. Adrian Peterson led the rush on 76 yards and a score, and Terry McLaurin had 57 yards and a TD on four grabs.
The Eagles are 2-5 ATS in their last seven in Week 15 and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 on Sunday after a Monday night game. The over is 9-1-1 in Philadelphia’s last 11 in Week 15 and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these teams.
Meanwhile, the Redskins are 5-0 ATS in their last five versus the NFC and 5-1 ATS in their last six as an underdog. The Redskins are 5-2 ATS in their last seven overall and 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games.
The Redskins were playing above their level this season in the Lions and Panthers games, but came back down to earth against the Packers in a tough matchup at Lambeau. Washington’s issues are still there; the team can’t score consistently.
As for Philly, they’ve just been bad over their last four games. The Eagles had the chance to take control of the division, but they’ve stumbled heavily and haven’t looked like a team that controls the NFC East—as mediocre as it is. All of that said, Monday was a momentum win and at less than a touchdown I like Philadelphia here.
