Redskins-Eagles II Predictions

Here’s our staff’s completely scientific predictions for tonight. Make yours in the comments. Whoever is closest to the actual outcome wins a guest post on this here weblog.

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

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Team with Good TD fight song (objection to name not withstanding) – 42

    Team with terrible TD fight song that revolves around spelling a word – 37

    Just feels like the Skins will win this week—31-10. Fearless predictions: RG3 goes nuts, Foles comes back to earth (much like he did against the Cowboys), and Josh Morgan either catches a pass (zoiks!) or doesn’t fumble on a punt or kick return.

    Redskins 38 Eagles 20. Our season-long knack for injuring a key opposing player in every game comes in handy when McCoy goes down.

    Dear Santa:
    I love it when meaningful football is being played when there is a tree in my living room. That’s all I would really like for Christmas.
    Terps winning the Military Bowl does not count BTW.
    Skins 31
    Dicks 17

    Santa Haters – 20

    DC successfully fakes some things.

    Eagles 27

    No reason for this other than I’m not drinking the Foles Kool-Aid just yet. Also, the Skins have one foot and nine toes in the grave, and need this game more to continue the false delusion of a playoff berth.

    Eagles: 17
    Chocolate City Mothership: 27
    When Nick Foles throws his third pick of the game and season to seal the loss, I run upstairs to the Ealges part of the sports bar where I watch games in Philly and order a round of shots on me. Then, just as they are being served, I scream “Fuck Howard Eskin!”, run out of the bar, and never come back.

    I dunno skins 38 – 35

    Shanny’s team’s defenses have always sucked, and the DC is always on the hotseat. My (conspiracy) theory is that they don’t know how to tackle or finish plays because shanny doesn’t allow much comtact in training camp or mid season.

    Hey, at least the Terps are going bowling! (:flush)

    So there is a team that scores a lot of points and leads the league in explosive plays versus a defense that absolutely cannot stop anyone for a solid 60?

    How does any Redskins fan feel good about this or even “feel” like this is a week to win?

    Eagles 38 Redskins 21

    Agree with this ^ I respect all of your opinions, but after last week how can anyone honestly pick the Skins against, well, anyone?

    Philly – 38
    Skins – 24

    Again, until the Redskins can demonstrate an ability to stop anyone, I don’t see how you can pick them to win. Remember, last week Ponder/Cassel shredded the defense (the D had exactly 2 stops all game, one on an arm punt and another when the WR fell coming out of his break).

    It’s a no-brainer.
