The season kind of never really got going for Washington, although they enjoyed a little mid-season run that makes their stats look respectable. Injuries/Covidness have hit them quite hard in recent weeks but essentially they lack the offensive tools to regularly score 25+ points a game, and their defense has been slightly underwhelming pretty much throughout. They tightened up for a while but have looked ragged and disinterested in the last few weeks.
Philadelphia let us down badly in their first match against the weak Giants, but last week they showed up and made amends and still have very realistic chances of grabbing a wild card spot. Washington meanwhile took an absolute hammering against the Cowboys and - crazy scenarios aside - are all but done for the season. Just now, there looks to be a bit of a gulf between these two teams and the Eagles won 27-17 when they played only a couple of weeks ago.
The predictor says Phildelphia Eagles 35-13 Washington Football Team, which might be a tad ambitious but highlights the current form differential. Available at 1.6 earlier in the week, Philadelphia still appeal as good value at close to 1.5, and the spread price of 2.05 for the Eagles -5.5pts is also appealing.
