Right now the NFC East division feels more like a triple threat match. Only one game separates the Cowboys and Redskins from the Eagles. Monday’s game could go a long way in determining who has the edge going into the final five games of the regular season.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Eagles have won the last two games against Washington. In the most recent matchup, the Eagles defeated the Redskins at home 32-24 on October 23, 2017. Prior to the two-game winning streak, Washington had won five straight games against the Eagles. Against the spread, the Redskins are 6-2 in the last eight games versus Philadelphia. Also, the Redskins are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss.

Both teams are 2-1 against divisional opponents, but the Eagles are 0-4 ATS in their last four games against the NFC.

Washington Redskins

On Thanksgiving Day, the Redskins fell to the Cowboys, thus dropping into a first place tie with the Cowboys. In his first start of the season and first since December 14, 2014, Colt McCoy struggled against Dallas throwing more interceptions than touchdowns in the 31-23 setback. This offence isn’t the same without Quarterback , who is out for the rest of the season with a broken leg, and more emphasis will rest on the shoulders of Adrian Peterson. Peterson is definitely a top candidate for comeback player of the year, with 758 rushing yards, he is ranked ninth overall in the league. But, he’s hit a little bit of a wall as of late, rushing for 35, 51, 68, and 17 yards respectively in the last four games.

The Redskins defence did not have an answer for Dak Prescott last week who threw for a season high 289 yards, while Amari Cooper was explosive catching eight balls for 180 yards. Washington’s pass defence is ranked 23rd (260.9 yards per game) and will have their hands full with Alshon Jeffrey, Golden Tate, and Nelson Agholor on Monday.

Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan has been a bright spot in the second half of the season. Since week seven, he has had seven sacks, which is tied for the second-most in the NFL over that time.

Philadelphia Eagles

The good news for Eagles fans is quarterback Carson Wentz has played well against the Redskins in the past. In fact, he has thrown for 300+ yards games in two of the last three. The bad news, the Eagles haven’t won back-to-back games all season long, and last week they beat the Giants.

Tight End Zach Ertz continues to dazzle this season. He currently ranks second in positional receiving yards, only behind Kansas City’s Travis Kelce. Last week against the Giants, Ertz tied the Eagles single-season record for catches by a tight end with 81. By year’s end he could flirt with 100+ receptions.

Running back Josh Adams could be the light at the end of a tunnel for the Eagles. Since starter Jay Ajayi went down with an injury in week five, Adams is now the third feature back the Eagles have used and appears to be the best option. Last week against the Giants, Adams rushed for 84 yards on 22 carries and also scored a touchdown. This week he will face a Redskins defence that is eighth against the rush, averaging 100.3 yards against per game.
