Philadelphia Eagles vs Washington

Philadelphia Eagles vs Washington

At this stage in the buildup to Sunday's season opener, the Eagles need little reminding that the Redskins have won the last five meetings between the pair of NFC East rivals, but quarterback Kirk Cousins has been a significant reason for the lopsided nature of this rivalry of late. While based in Boston, the Redskins lost just one game in five match ups against Philadelphia, 7-6, on November 3, 1935.

Having survived the ups and down, bumps and bruises of his rookie season, Wentz emerged as a leader on and off the field. They wait two quarters for things to start clicking offensively, and the defense can't allow its opponent to march downfield and set the tone.

"There's a great feeling that you have as a quarterback when you're either in the shotgun or under center and you kind of look out there and you see your guy", Reich said. Each has a quarterback with a gunslinger mentality and neither Carson Wentz nor Kirk Cousins would mind throwing it 50 times. Redskins running back Chris Thompson broke his back and tore the ACL in his left knee in college at Florida State and tore the labrum in his left shoulder as a rookie with Washington in 2013 but has since recovered to play in 29 of the past 32 games.

For Graham, it all comes down to this team starting fast. A talented pass-rusher, Galette signed with Washington two years ago but hasn't played in a game after tearing one Achilles' tendon in 2015 and the other in 2016.

The Eagles offense got off to a slow start the last time they visited FedEx Field.

Doctson's talent has never been in question, but he's struggled to stay on the field since he entered the National Football League as a first-round pick in the 2016 draft. They played a fast-paced offense that was able to keep opposing defenses from being able to make personnel adjustments with substitutions. Washington will go with a weak front three of Jonathan Allen, Ziggy Hood and Stacy McGee. Redskins head coach Jay Gruden says that he and new defensive coordinator Greg Manusky haven't decided that yet.

"At the end of those games we were right there", Wentz said. Wentz can not wait to see it in action. Last season, running back Robert Kelley had 82 yards in receiving yards and a touchdown. So, the Redskins will turn to third-year pro Deshazor Everett.

Both teams played quite well in the pre season fixtures with each winning two games each. Maybe not even for a few games more, and that is a frightening thought given that the Eagles will be tested early with three of their first four games on the road.

"It doesn't take a lot of time to get him going".

From a talent standpoint, Doctson's fluid motions make him one of the most natural route runners at the wide receiver position.
