But when these teams meet in Philly, the result has typically been a Redskin cover (5-1 ATS past 6 visits). Although the stronger Week 17 trend in Washington focuses on the total, where they are 9-1 favoring the OVER the past 10 season-ending games.

The Eagles opened as double-digit chalk and they have failed to cover the past 4 games in that situation.
