Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins Week 1 Betting Guide

'OK' is good enough for Eagles

Several Philadelphia Eagles players thought officials might overturn the game-sealing touchdown in Sunday's season-opening win over the Redskins. The Redskins hope to start this season off better than they finished 2016 - losing a virtual layup game at home that would have clinched a playoff berth to a Giants squad that already had secured its postseason destination.

They certainly learned that lesson the hard way on Sunday. Doctson visited one specialist after another, never got an answer about what caused persistent soreness in his Achilles tendons and was placed on injured reserve October 21 as only months of rest seemed to have a positive effect. Furthermore, they are 1-5 against Washington over the past three seasons.

This is the moment that all Eagles fans have been waiting for. Focusing on Washington only was a start. If he does the Eagles could become a serious threat to anybody they play. They're building their roster for the future, but also have surrounded Wentz with veteran talent to compete now.

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins turned down a contract extension offer from the front office that would have paid him $110 million ($53 million fully guaranteed) over five years, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. With Barnett on the right, Chris Long was in at left end with Brandon Graham kicked in at tackle and Fletcher Cox at the other inside spot.

Perhaps because he knows a particularly hard matchup awaits him, Cox was already downright ornery when asked to talk about it after practice on Thursday. "I don't care if it's my sister across from me".

I'm not going to hang my hat on this Rams team until they can prove they can compete. "I handle everything like a pro". It's hard to make them one-dimensional. Power? Technique? Footwork? All of the above? "Just really excited, obviously excited back in OTAs and through camp and watching he and Carson (Wentz) work", Pederson said.

My feeling is if Taylor does in fact play, the -7.5 looks like a foregone conclusion to move towards the higher number. "So I think confidence is not an issue with Josh". "You have the challenge of trying to quiet the crowd, which is hostile at times". I just play football. The pass-blocking presence of Johnson should help, as quarterback Carson Wentz was sacked nine times last season. Tight end Zach Ertz led the way with eight receptions for 93 yards while Nelson Agholor and LeGarrette Blount each netted receiving touchdowns. We need to go out and set a tone, especially against a division opponent. "(Alshon) is a big target, dynamic guy, that's had success when he is faced with challenges. It will be a great opportunity for him. He gets lazy sometimes, but sometime's that's when plays are away from him.

But as referees reviewed the play to see if Cousins' arm was coming forward, making the play an incompleted pass instead of a fumble, the Eagles' defense and Redskins' offense trotted back onto the field.
