Monday Night Football: Philadelphia Eagles vs Washington Redskins on ESPN Preview and Coverage
Two rising NFL teams will face one another in the primetime Monday Night Football today. The Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins will be facing each other for the second time this season. Their first meeting was on October 3 and during that time the Redskins won, 17-12. It was a very close game but the offensive and defensive strategy of the Redskins did paid off.
The Eagles had made a better record since the last meeting and have lost just two more games while the Redskins have lost the same amount of games but brings the total to four games. Donovan McNabb will hopefully be seeing play today since he had been benched after suffering some cardiovascular problems. If McNabb is healthy and in sufficient cardiovascular shape then he might get his second revenge against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Washington Redskins had been routed by Detroit Lions last week, 37-25 while the Philadelphia Eagles managed to snap a win against the Indianapolis Colts, 26-24. The Eagles is all fired up during this point and is very different when they first met the Redskins so expect a different game which will be good for a really head-on collision.
We will once again see Philadelphia Eagle’s Michael Vick who had been 3-1 on Monday Night Football games. Last week he was knocked from the game. Watched out as well for Philadephia’s Asante Samuel who had the most interceptions since 2006 in the NFL.
Players to watch for Washington Redskins inclues linebacker Brian Orakpo and his sacks. He had made five sacks in his past four games. Also, add Chris Cooley who is second among NFC tight ends with 39 receptions.
Who will win in this second face-off between Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins? Will the Eagles take their revenge this time? Let us hear some points from Drew Litton’s Monday Matchup Madness.
