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.

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.

I don't know anything about this S other than he played for Dabo Sweeney.

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

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

Alot of it will come down to how we start. IF (I know it's a huge IF) we get out to a 10 point lead and the defense can start pounding I think the Eagles players will just be ready to leave the field. BUT if(small if) we let them start out with a lead and give them a reason to play then we could be watching Dallas/NYG the following week.

Call me crazy, but I think the team gets rejuvenated behind either AS or The Beer Man, and we get our very first score on an opening drive and never look back.

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.

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

I can't make a prediction not knowing who will be at QB. One thing we can probably count on is the defense will give the team a chance. If Alex plays and he's 100%, it should be a W. If Heinicke starts, I don't know what to expect. I've only seen him for 9 minutes against a middle of the pack prevent defense. Hopefully he doesn't turn the ball over, and they are able to get a running game going.

I want to see someone else returning punts too. The S Sims Jr experiment has to be over, right? Let Danny Johnson give it a go.

I do not expect the Eagles to pack it in, to begin with, at halftime, or at all...
