Eagles Look to End Losing Streak in Washington

The 2017 NFL season kicks off with a key NFC East divisional matchup, as the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Washington Redskins at FedExField. The Eagles are winless SU and ATS in five meetings with Washington, and have recorded just one SU and ATS victory in five visits to the nation’s capital.
