Redskins: 3-2-0 (1-1-0 V)
Eagles: 5-1-0 (2-0-0 H)
When: 8:30 PM ET, Monday, October 23, 2017
Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
TV: ESPN

Analysis:
The red-hot Philadelphia Eagles will attempt to maintain their winning form as they look to sweep their two-game season series against the Washington Redskins as they get ready for this NFC East showdown set to be broadcasted on Monday night on ESPN at 8:30 p.m. ET and live from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The Eagles, who are riding on a four-game winning streak, have a chance to sweep the Redskins for the first time since they did it back in 2013.

The Redskins faced the Eagles at home in their opener and were dealt a convincing 30-17 loss back on September 10. Quarterback Carson Wentz shined in the victory as he threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns while the vaunted Eagles’ defense was stellar by limiting the Redskins to just 304 total yards. It was the Eagles first win against their division rivals in their last six games. The Eagles enter this contest as a 4.5-point favorite, according to Bovada Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 49 points.

The Eagles, who boast the best record in the NFL at 5-1, are in great position to improve on their record as they will play their next three games at home before a week 10 bye. They have only two losses at Lincoln Financial Field in their last ten games since the beginning of last year. They will also be well-rested after beating the Carolina Panthers on the road two Thursdays ago. Wentz is fifth in the league in passing yards with 1,584 yards and has 13 touchdowns passes to just three interceptions this season.

The Redskins escaped a scare against the lowly San Francisco 49ers last week as they blew an early 17-point lead and needed a last minute interception to barely edge the Niners 26-24 last Sunday. While quarterback Kirk Cousins sports the third best QB rating in the league only behind Tom Brady and Alex Smith, the 29-year old is 0-5 in his career playing on Mondays. The Redskins’ defense is banged up with top corners Josh Norman who has been ruled out while Bashaud Breeland’s status is listed as questionable.

Bovada has the Eagles listed as 4½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 49 according to MyBookie.

On the NFL Football Moneyline Odds at BetOnline Eagles are the Favorite at -215.
