Eagles vs. Washington: Decent game from divisional rivals?

Washington hosts the Philadelphia Eagles in the first half of a rare Saturday double-header. The game kicks off at 1:30 p.m. PT, and airs on NFL Network. It features an Eagles team fighting for their playoff lives at 9-5. They are a game back of the Cowboys in the NFC East, but also a game back of the two wild card teams. With the Seahawks and Cardinals squaring off on Sunday, Philly will be rooting heavily for the Cardinals.

Washington is scuffling along looking ahead to next season, but divisional matchups can often make for good matchups. It seems one-sided just from the record, but I would not be surprised if Washington hung close in this one. This all comes even as they are an absolute dumpster fire of a team, so I suppose I should not be shocked if it ends up being ugly. As my weekly picks show, what do I know?
