The Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles will be meeting up on the NFL’s “Monday Night Football” at Lincoln Financial Field this week. 

The Redskins come in here with a 6-5 record overall. Washington had a good run of three straight victories in mid-season but have since lost three of four games, most recently to the Cowboys. 

In the Dallas game, Redskins QB Colt McCoy put up 268 yards, two TDs and three picks, and Adrian Peterson mustered just 35 yards rushing. Jordan Reed was the top receiver for the Redskins with 75 yards on six catches.>

>Over on the Philly side, they’re 5-6 this year. Over their last five games, the Eagles are 2-3 with wins over the Jaguars and Giants, and losses to the Panthers, Cowboys and Saints. 

In the Giants game, Eagles QB Carson Wentz put up 236 yards and a TD, and Josh Adams logged 84 yards and a TD to lead the rush. Zach Ertz led the Philly receivers with 91 yards and a TD from seven catches. 

The Redskins are 5-0 ATS in their last five following an ATS loss and 5-1 ATS in their last six on grass. The Redskins are also 5-2 ATS in their last seven overall and 0-5 ATS in their last five in Week 13. 

Meanwhile, the Eagles are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 in Week 13 and 1-4 ATS in their last five in December. Philly is 1-4 ATS in their last five versus the NFC East and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 overall. 

The Alex Smith injury is pretty devastating for the Redskins, but there’s still a chance they can salvage the division if McCoy can step up and deliver some support. He should perform better here with a week-plus of prep time. 

As for Philly, they’re having trouble dispatching just about everyone this year and seem to be the latest victims of the Super Bowl hangover. This should be a pretty good matchup, and I think the Redskins can pound out a cover.

Pick:
Washington Redskins +7
