Tomorrow night's game is set to be a good one.

Both teams are coming off disappointing losses to poor opponents.

The Eagles lost to the Oakland Raiders last week. The game can be described in one word: Disaster. Andy Reid refused to run the ball even though they were breaking off good runs on the ground. Constant pressure on Donovan McNabb ultimately led to the Eagles loss. The Raiders won the game 13-9.

The Redskins are coming off a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The game was terrible for the Redskins. Jason Campbell was awful in the first half, causing him to get benched. He was replaced by veteran Todd Collins who wasn't much better. The game had a final score of 14-6. The Chiefs walked away with their first win of the season and the 'Skins walked away with their fourth loss.

Both of these teams have something to prove. Neither can afford another loss. Both are desperate for a win. You know what that means, a great game.

Redskins Predictions

Jason Campbell:

11-23, 238 yards TD, 2 INT

Clinton Portis:

18 carries, 82 yards, TD

1 receptions, 4 yards

Santana Moss:

4 receptions, 55 yards, TD

Albert Hayneworth:

1 sack, 3 tackles

Deangelo Hall:

1 interception, 3 tackle

 

Eagles Predictions

Donovan McNabb:

15-28, 270 yards TD, INT

Brian Westbrook:

17 carries, 100 yards, TD

DeSean Jackson:

6 receptions, 110 yards, TD

1 carry, 7 yards

Trent Cole:

2 sacks, 1 tackle

Asante Samuel:

1 INT, 2 tackles

Sheldon Brown:

1 INT, 4 tackles

I think the Eagles win this one 21-17. The center of it all is the Eagles offensive line. Todd Herremans and Jason Peters return, which is huge. Without Peters, the starter would be King Dunlap. Dunlap proved last week that he isn't an NFL starter. Albert Haynesworth isn't at his best, but he is still a major threat. Shutting him down will be key. Todd Herremans should be able to do the job.

I'm looking forward to a good game tomorrow. Go Eagles!
