The NFL closes out Week 13 with an important NFC East matchup on Monday Night Football. The Philadelphia Eagles host Washington with kickoff set for 5:15 p.m. PT on ESPN. Joe Tessitore and Jason Witten will call the game from the booth, with Booger McFarland serving as an analyst from the field. Lisa Salters continues her duties as the sideline reporter.
The Dallas Cowboys hold a half game lead on Washington and a one-and-a-half game lead on Philadelphia. Dallas also holds the tiebreaker over both for the time being, so this is a must-win for both teams.
The Eagles are a six-point favorite over Washington, according to sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark. I don’t trust Colt McCoy, but Philadelphia is playing short-handed on defense and bettors might be a little too confident in them. I’m taking the points with Washington.
