Rested Redskins Take On Falling Eagles

Posted By Mercedes Green On Oct 14 2011 @ 9:23 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

If any team needs a bye week it’s the Philadelphia Eagles.  I thought our “100 million dollar man” was bad but Michael Vick throwing 4 picks last week is just crazy. Even with the Redskins on their bye last week they have made it into the Top 10 Power Poll on NFL.com and are sitting pretty at #1 in the NFC East.

I have put it out of my mind the last time the Redskins met the Eagles in week 10 2010 where the Eagles pummeled the Redskins 59-28.  These are 2 very different teams now and for different reasons.  The Eagles were thought of as contenders at the beginning of the season and the Redskin to be 3rd or 4th in our division.   Oh how a few weeks can change things.

Looking at the offense, we have the best running back for the Redskins and the best receiver for the Eagles.  However, with 7 interceptions to Michael Vick so far this season (5 to Grossman) the running game sounds like a much safer alternative for both.

Looking at the defense, this is where the Redskins have commanded. With Ryan Torain healthy, sitting at #1 and facing the #30 ranked rush defense, it should be a game the Redskins can win and take the majority of time off the clock by running  the ball.

However, this is division game and they are never easy.  Who knows, maybe the Eagles can fix their problems in a week.
