I THINK the Eagles are a better team than they were when they lost at the Redskins, 31-6, in Nick Foles' first start, on Nov. 18. Alas, so are the 'Skins, who used that victory as the springboard to what is now a five-game winning streak.
Dunno how effective Robert Griffin III will be, coming off a knee problem. He was devastating in the last meeting. Do think Foles will be better, against a defense that still isn't anything special, without Brian Orakpo.
Am I predicting the first Eagles victory at the Linc since September? No, I'm not that crazy. But I think they just might cover.
Redskins 24, Eagles 21
