This is the game I’ve been dreading since the schedule came out. If jettisoned receiver DeSean Jackson comes back to Lincoln Financial Field and puts on a show to lead Washington, that’s very, very bad. This was a roster move that Philadelphia players are still questioning. If Jackson torches them and they lose, it’s going to hurt Chip Kelly’s credibility in the locker room.
I think Jackson has a good game, but I also believe Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has a better one. It’s about time for Foles to settle in and make the throws he’s capable of from the start of the game.
The Eagles have been so, so good in the second half so far. If they can put a complete game together on Sunday, it really doesn’t matter what DeSean does (for the record, I’m saying six catches for 80 yards and a touchdown).
Eagles 38, Redskins 20

The Redskins are heading for a fall. Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins heads into Philadelphia to face a raucous crowd set to give former Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson a rough reception.
This is the game where the Eagles will fly, with Foles returning to his 2013 form.
The Eagles will rack up the points early and cruise to victory.
