Before I get started on the Eagles, one last comment about the Jets game. The Redskins were favored by 3.5 points and only won by 3. That means the Jets covered the spread. The Over/Under was 35.5. The total came to 43, so that means it was an over. My last prediction before the game was 23-13. I won the over/under but lost the pointspread.

My Thoughts on the Eagles Game.
The Eagles lost to Dallas 38-17.
I wish I saw this game. Is Dallas that good or is Philly that lousy? This was a home game for Philly. I am not sure. Romo was 20 for 25 with 1 Int and 324 yards. The Redskins are at 5-3 and this is a home divisional game. I believe the Redskins are a littler better than the Eagles at this point. McNabb was 27 for 46 with 2 Ints and 250 yards.
I don't think anyone fully realizes how important yesterday's victory against the Jets was. This 3 point victory against the Jets erases the 45 point loss to the Patriots. The Redskins also beat the Dolphins. The Redskins are 5-3.
I see exactly how this game will play out. The big story with the Redskins is that they've completed 0 TD passes to a wide receiver. This will continue through the Eagles game. Gibbs is gonna run run run. I look for a low-scoring conservitive game against the Eagles.
The Pointspread is Redskins -2.5 and the Over/Under is 38.
Final score prediction
As of now, I am taking the Redskins -2.5 and Over 38.
