Eagles vs Redskins Preview and Free Pick – November 15th, 2010 ]]> include($base_url . “/includes/header.htm”); ?>
When we last left the Washington Redskins 2 weeks ago, they were in Detroit with Donovan McNabb on the sidelines watching as the Lions beat the ‘Skins 37-25. Mike Shannahan said that McNabb wasn’t in good enough shape to run a two-minute offense. How insane. I can’t think of another coach who would bench a future Hall-of-Famer when the game was on the line. Don’t expect that to happen again especially against his old coach and team. The Eagles are now a win away from tying the Giants for first in the NFC East and setting up a huge Sunday Night game next week with them in Philly. QB Michael Vick has led the Eagles to the 4th best offense in the NFL thanks to his legs and left arm. He has the highest QB rating in the NFL and has yet to throw an interception. McNabb is 28th in passing and has thrown 7 interceptions. The Eagles secondary is very banged up and since the Redskins have no running game, I expect McNabb to be throwing a lot tonight. He always did well after a bye week when he was in Philly. The Eagles are the better team, but I think the Redskins get it done tonight.
Pick: Redskins +3
