The Coach's NFL *Afternoon ANNIHILATOR* - Eagles@Redskins
(NFL) Philadelphia vs. Washington, 12/20/2014 11:30 AM, Score: 24 - 27
Point Spread: 8.50 | -127.00 Washington (Home)
Result: Win
The Washington Redskins have had a disastrous season, and struggling QB Robert Griffin III has shouldered much of the blame. The Eagles though have a similar problem, as Marc Sanchez hasn't been very sharp since the injury to Nick Foles. I like the Redskins as a big underdog at home on Saturday.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Redskins Run Defense - Washington ranks 7th in the NFL against the run, allowing opponents to average just over 100 yards per game. When these teams played in Week 3, they held LeSean McCoy to just 22 yards on 19 carries. If the Eagles can't get the running game going, that will put more pressure on the turnover prone Sanchez.

2. RGIII - He didn't play too badly against the Giants, throwing for 236 yards and a TD on 18-of-27 passing. He'll be trying to prove that he still has what it takes to be a starter in this league.

3. X-Factor - The Eagles have won three of the last four meetings, but not one of those victories came by more than eight points.

Selection: This is a play on the Washington Redskins (8*)
