Jack Kogod: Redskins, 31-24
If only to validate J. Reid’s column advocating for a Shanahan contract extension.
Matt Terl: Eagles, 35-27
I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that defensive lapses and special teams breakdowns contribute to that score. And there is no way this team could win convincingly enough to validate that column.
JP Finlay: Eagles, 34-24
Remember when I was a bit cocky about the Skins winning three in a row and going into MNF vs. the Niners at 5-5? You should have seen me at 27-14 in the 3rd quarter last Thursday. Then you should have seen me after the game. #infinitesadness
Chris Mottram: Redskins, 31-24
I have no reason for thinking the Skins will win this game other than that they have a knack for winning when we all expect them to lose, and vice versa. SCIENCE!
Todd Davis: Eagles, 37-31
Offense tries hard, but two teams moving in opposite directions.
Andy Peden: Eagles, 41-24
Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 31-27
The over/under on this is 53, which is a league-high this week, so that’s fun.
Composite prediction: Eagles, 32-28
