Philadelphia Eagles (9-5)

Week 15 Top Performers:

  • Mark Sanchez: 252 yards and two touchdowns
  • LeSean McCoy: 64 yards
  • Jeremy Maclin: 98 yards

Factors to consider:

  • Unfortunately, the Eagles lost to the Cowboys at home in week 15 on Primetime
  • Eagles are now on a two game losing streak, both at home
  • Eagles are currently out of the wild card; Cowboys hold first place in the NFC East
  • They risk their season if they suffer another loss; must win situation

Offensive Expectations:       

  • Mark Sanchez goes up against a Redskins D-line that is ranked 7th in rush defense and a secondary that is ranked 17th in pass defense.
  • Expect LeSean McCoy to struggle once again against this tough Redskins defense
  • Mark Sanchez’s performance will determine the outcome of the game; hit or miss. Season lies in his hands.

Defensive Expectations:

  • Eagles’ defense face a struggling Redskins offense
  • Expect the Defensive lineman to put lots of pressure on Griffin
  • Considering their low pass coverage ranking (28th), expect the Redskins to target receivers covered by Bradley Fletcher. He has been struggling in the cornerback position; this was seen in their game against the Cowboys

Washington Redskins (3-11)

Week 15 Top Performers:

  • Robert Griffin III: 236 yards and a touchdown
  • Alfred Morris: 49 yards
  • Andre Roberts: 81 yards

Factors to consider: 

  • Lost against the Giants in week 15; Out of the playoff picture
  • Robert Griffin comes back as the starting QB, replacing Colt McCoy

Offensive Expectations:       

  • Robert Griffin III faces an Eagles defense that has been mediocre this season (18th in rush defense/ 28th in pass defense), however he must watch out for the Eagles defensive ends as they have been going through offensive lineman’s successfully.
  • Expect Griffin to get sacked a lot; his passing game is considered unpredictable for this matchup

Defensive Expectations:

  • The Redskins defense has been the positive aspect of the team
  • Expect them to give Sanchez lots of trouble and keep LeSean McCoy under 100 yards.

Eagles needs this win and can’t let a 3-11 team beat them in such a critical situation. They’ll probably even have a dominating performance and win well over a touchdown.
