Week 16 NFL Odds: Eagles vs Redskins

Sam Bradford Eagles

A Saturday night special between the 7-7 Washington Redskins and 6-8 Philadelphia Eagles has major playoff implications…and in no way is that depressing. Philly has struggled to cover when they are hosting their NFC East opponent, with the Eagles going just 2-6 ATS in their past eight games at home to the Redskins.

Shark Bites
  • Jordan Reed has caught all 16 passes targeted for him in the past two weeks.
  • The Eagles are 3-6 ATS in their last nine games at home.
  • Sam Bradford threw three touchdowns and no interceptions when these teams met earlier this season.

The Eagles were starting to heat up coming into Week 15 with two wins over good teams, only to be thumped 40-17 at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals. The Eagles defense is downright awful this season, but somehow it has been even worse lately as the team has allowed 35.6 points per game in their past five contests.

Kirk Cousins put on one of the best performances by a quarterback this season last week against the Buffalo Bills. Cousins completed 78.6 percent of his passes for 319 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. Since the Redskins bye week in Week 8, Cousins has thrown for 13 touchdowns and just three interceptions.
