Redskins-Eagles Predictions

Hey, let’s play Predictions again! Last game’s winner, Sisson, failed to collect. Hopefully he does that now. A reminder on how it works:

Our Redskins-loving “staff” makes predictions in the post, readers make predictions in the comments, and the commenter who comes closest to predicting the final score gets to make a guest post. Hip-hip!

Chris Mottram: Redskins, 27-17

Both defenses are horrible, scoring-wise. The Eagles are giving up 25 points/game, while the Skins allow 28. On the flip side, Washington is scoring eight more points per game than Philly. Of course, that number is based on a Vick-led offense. Foles is starting, which means we have no clue how their offense will perform. I’m guessing not much better than with Vick, at least not in his first NFL start.

Matt Terl: Redskins, 14-13

Let’s look at the bright side: if the Eagles had fired Andy Reid, the Redskins would be facing a interim head coach AND rookie QB, and would therefore lose something like 83-9. As it stands I think they manage to win, but they make it as stressful and unfun to watch as possible.

JP Finlay: Redskins, 24-14

Considering the coach thinks he needs a passport to travel to Pittsburgh, I’d say confidence is pretty low. I thought they’d lose last game, and they did. For whatever reason I think they win this game. If nothing else it lets the crazies think we still have a playoff shot.

Andy Peden: Redskins, 25-21

I figure the best way to ruin my Thanksgiving is for the Skins to beat the Eagles, giving us a little hope, only to get punched in the gut by Dallas.

Todd Davis: Eagles, 35-13

Why, why, why has everyone started using the “there’s time to make a run” logic just one short bye week after losing the “must-win”?! This is the Skins under Snyder, you can’t fight what is.

Jack Kogod: Eagles, 24-20

I heard that we’re something like 1-10 against teams coming in on five-game losing streaks. Philly wins, but it’s OK because the Wizards are totally winning this weekend. Maybe.

Me: Redskins, 24-17

For all the Sturm und Drang, the Skins are only -22 in point differential while Philly is an NFC-worst -65, plus Philly is starting Kevin Kolb 2.0. I’m expecting — and hoping/praying for — a spirit-lifting win.

Composite prediction: Redskins, 21-20

  1. Skins 17-10.
    I expect that the Skins defense will look like a “normal” NFL defense, generating pressure and forcing the qb into some mistakes (turnovers!). The offense has looked meh the last couple weeks and I haven’t seen anything to make me think that’ll change here. Skins win a tight one.

  2. Eagles 31-20

    Shady McCoy gets player of the week consideration after screen passing us to death. DHall and DJackson get matching unsportsmanlikes. FedEx is quiet. The grinch steals christmas.

  3. Alf chases people with a fork and scores twice. Foles gets sacked three times–the second time by his awful 80s hair. Redskins 31, Eagles 20.

  4. The Shanahii will work alfred morris and chris cooley to a 7-0 lead in the first. 13-3 redskins at halftime.

    eagles make it interesting in the third when nick foles brings the birds to within a field goal: 13-10.

    driving downfield, skins have a chance to make the score 20-10 off of a 54 yard forbath field goal but he misses wide right, giving the eagles their best field possesssion of the day. the drive and take the lead off of a 27 yard maclin reception. 13-17 eagles.

    RGIII has one last chance to win the game… does so on a meticulous drive that ends the game with a final score of 20-17 redskins.

    sonny jurgenson has legendary post game interview with rg3 in the locker room.

  5. This will be an absolutely horrible game. The Redskins will probably lose. No idea what the final score will be, could be 38-35, could be 9-7.

    That being said, love Messi’s prediction.

  6. After dancing his ass off and winning Pedro the election and attending college at the University of Arizona, Napoleon Dynamite was drafted in the third round by the Philadelphia Eagles and in his first career start he was beaten by the Washington Redskins 24-13.

  8. Eagles 42 redskins 14. This is because the skins should win this game. Because the press thinks we will win the game. Whenever this combo happens, the skins collapse into a bowl of steaming crap. I’ve come to prefer the games where we have no chance in hell over these.

  9. Hollywood for Ugly People – 35

    Minsk for Ugly People – 31

    This game stinks worse than Center City on a Saturday night. Iggles threaten with 2 minute drive late in game, Andy Reid mercilessly botches it, and DeAngelo gets a garbage pick on a heave towards the end zone as time expires.
