Saturday night is huge for the NFC East, as 7-7 Washington heads to 6-8 Philadelphia. The Skins are in pole position in the division, but for all their dysfunction, the Eagles are still right there.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -3.5 -105 at Pinnacle
The NFL odds for this showdown opened up at -3.5 for the Eagles at home, then the line went to -4 and back to -3.5. It has since landed on a field goal for the Eagles, who got thumped 40-17 at home by Arizona. RB DeMarco Murray is in the news once again for his lack of carries as he had just two against the Cardinals, and head coach Chip Kelly has to figure out how to use a player that he paid $42 million for. However, the bigger problem might be a defense that ranked 29th in yards allowed and 27th in points allowed. The Redskins have won three of four after a 35-25 win over Buffalo and QB Kirk Cousins is playing much better down the stretch. Washington is 6-1 this season when he has a QBR over 100.0 for a game and during this four-game run, Cousins has thrown seven touchdowns and just one pick. The first meeting of the season for these two came back in Week 4, when the Redskins won 23-20 at home.
