Washington Football Team at Philadelphia Eagles: 12/21/21 NFL Picks and Prediction

Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Philadelphia Eagles will play host to the Washington Football team on Tuesday night from Lincoln Financial Field in Philly in an NFC East showdown. 

The Eagles are coming off of a Bye week after getting an easy win against the Jets in their last time out. Gardner Minshew II started in place of the injured Jalen Hurts. Minshew went 20 for 25 for 242 passing yards and two touchdowns  

The Eagles officially have Hurts listed as probable to play in this game. Hurts has struggled with injuries this season and has been decent when healthy. He has thrown for 2,435 yards for 13 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. He has a QBR of 48.

The Eagles offense averages 356.2 yards a game which is 15th in the league. They are scoring 25.9 points per game as they give up 336.5 yards and 22.4 points per game to their opponents. 

The Football Team lost to the Dallas Cowboys in their last game. Taylor Heinicke went 11 for 25 for 122 passing yards, one passing touchdown, and threw one interception. Heinicke left the game due to a knee injury but it is not considered to be serious. He is however, on the covid list for this one. 

Washington had covered in four straight games as dogs before losing to Dallas. Taylor Heinicke has thrown for 2,931 yards for 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He has a QBR of 43.1.

The Football Team’s offense averages 336.2 yards a game which is 19th in the league. They are scoring 20.5 points per game as they give up 352.7 yards and 24.9 points per game to their opponents. 

The Football Team is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following an ATS loss. The Football Team is also 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a bye week and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC East. The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC.

Both of these teams could be missing their starting quarterbacks in this one. For the Eagles, Gardner Minshew is not a bad backup and could get them the win and cover in this one. I’ll lay the points with the Eagles as the Football Team is slammed with covid.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
