Moving on, here are our crackerjack staff’s completely scientific predictions for Sunday. Make yours down in the comments. Whichever reader is closest to the actual outcome gets to be a published author on this here weblog.
Chris Mottram: Redskins, 27-24
I don’t know why I’m doing this, other than Nick Foles has looked not good, I’m overly excited about the Skins front seven right now, and Jay Gruden has the quarterback he always wanted to run his offense.
(Also, if anyone sees someone wearing a “KC1” shirt, you’re legally obligated to punch them in the face.)
Andy Peden: Eagles, 27-17
Cousins now has a career 57.6 completion percentage with 10 TD and 10 INT. I think that probably equates to a shitty day against a real team.
Matt Terl: Eagles, 31-17
Cousins throws at least one severely damaging interception, but his fans are undeterred and launch a petition to have the waiting period waived for his enshrinement in Canton.
JP Finlay: Eagles, 30-21
Eagles are pretty good, and still haven’t fully clicked. The aqua-blue haze from the Jaguars game is hard to see out of, but the Skins front wont get to Foles like they did Henne. Cousins throws a big pick (like Terl said), Skins lose but look decent.
Jack Kogod: Eagles, 27-20
I’ll take Philly and the under.
Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 27-24
No one runs the Dalton Coast offense better than living legend Kirk Cousins. (Or, you know, Andy Dalton.)
Todd Davis: Eagles, 28-13
Nothing to see here and the Cousins/Dalton nonsense crashes immediately. And I second punching KC1 wearers.
Composite prediction: Eagles, 27-20
