Let's try this "Win and in" again. Eagles Pregame 2.0

Washington comes in with the #4 Ranked Defense in the league.

#30th ranked Offense

Philly comes in with both the 22nd ranked offense and 22nd ranked defense.

Week 1 seems like years ago, Haskins was the starter and our defense wrecked the Eagles OL and then starter Carson Wentz.

Now we are in another win and in scenario, this time led by either Alex Smith or Taylor Heineke on SNF of all slots.

I think Hurts will make some plays with his legs and the Eagles will not lay down but I feel the defense will create a couple TO's and that will be the difference.

WFT wins the division in Primetime and hosts the Tampa Bay Bucs on Wildcard weekend.

WASHINGTON FT - 24
EAGLES - 20

With nothing to play for it's hard to imagine the Eagles putting up a serious fight for 60 minutes.

WFT 23
Eagles 16

Usually in week 17 that is the case but I can never say that against us lol.

Another stat

Skins have scored 315 Points this season and allowed 315. That is nuts

Philly has scored just 320 points and allowed 398

I disagree with the nothing to play comment.

Players are professional and would love nothing more than knocking out a rival out of the playoffs. The question is, what is their state of mind after being eliminated last week.

Generally speaking a team that has been eliminated just isn't going to put up the same fight vs a team playing for something. It's just human nature.

Will they play hard? Sure, most likely they will. Can they win? Of course. That said I like our chances just a little bit better considering they are out of the race.

They also have a couple of key players or more who may not play on Sunday.

Feels so much like week 17 2016. Giants already clinched their spot in playoffs with nothing to play for. We win, were in. We played like shit right from the get go.

slow start + lucky bounce or 2 eagles way = panthers game all over again

This offense cant be relied on to come back from a double digit deficit. Not sure it is fair to ask the D to throw another 2nd half shut out.

Eagles are favored to win -1.5 line

Think about the feeling from week 17 in 2012 instead

I see the line as us favored by 1.5. I mean we don't know who our qb will be so I wouldn't be surprised to see the Eagles favored.

Actually the line has swung from Philly being favored by 1 to WFT being favored by 1.5, so that means heavy bettor action on WFT

I canít believe you think we have a chance,well I take that back,You always have been and optimist and I have always been a pessimist.
Letís face it,Smith is a game manager,always has been,dink and dunk city. He will end up starting and he wonít be 100 percent and Rivera will most likely stick with him even if heís playing like shit.
Philly has new qb with nothing to lose,thereís no way they are going to pack their bags.
Then thereís Dallas, Who have been playing balls out since we beat them.Yes for the first time in years we were able to beat them twice in a season,but they will end up being the winner of division,They will beat the Giants and we will lose,itís preordained thereís no stopping it.Dallas has always had our number,weíve gotten lucky a few seasons but for the most part Dallas owns us.
Add to that playing Philly in primetime is sure fire loss,I have zero faith we win this game

I hear you on the Prime time Philly part, BUT on Dallas, what they do or don't do in their game matters zero to us. This game is all about this team's heart. Rivera knows that, and I think thats why Haskins was gone basically as soon as the doors opened Monday morning. And I think Young, AS, the beer man, and Moses lead this team to the promised land of NFC East div champs.
Dallas don't got no heart.
Pederson said he's back next year so his players ain't playin to save their coach.
Rivera battled cancer
AS clawed by hook and crook back to playing condition,
And the beer man, well he does what he does and Chase Young likes that
That reminds me how much better does I like him from Chase Young sound then You Like That from the qb who shall not be named?

Seriously, this team has all the intangibles on their side. If Philly wants to win they gonna need to put 30 on in the first quarter cause once the clock strikes 2:00 in the second quarter its on, and not just on it's junior rodeo on.

Us verse QBs that can really use their legs = nightmares for me.

They need to play very disciplined on defense. No more 40 yard runs.
