Wake Up Call! Eagles: The Redskins O-Line Is Better

    Wake Up Call! Eagles

    The Redskin's O-Line is better.

    When the Redskins selected Trent Williams they knew he was the right choice.

    He only allowed 1.0 sack from Pro-Bowler DeMarcus Ware in first career start.

    They also added Pro-Bowler Jammal Brown, Artis Hicks and many others.

Key To The Game: Eagles: Shut Down Moss

    Santana Moss is the Redskin's only explosive weapon (besides Cooley). 

    Moss has 22 receptions for 290 yards and a touchdown in the last three games.

    If you can shut him down—you can win this football game.

    This is a tough game to decide.

    I think in the end washington will not find a way to contain Vick and this Eagles offense. Until with 4:56 on the clock Mike Vick will throw a costly pick and Washington drives down the field to kick a game winning field goal with 21 seconds left.

    Ending Score: Washington Redskins 26, Philadelphia Eagles 24
