Washington Spoiling Perfection?
The Washington Commanders were riding high on a three-game winning streak entering last Sunday, before losing at home to former quarterback Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings.

Washington’s struggled to figure out its situation at quarterback. Washington has employed both former Eagle Carson Wentz and Taylor Heinicke, but neither has shown any sort of consistency.
The Commanders, who have made more news off the field, have been somewhat better on defense. Washington has a middle-of-the-road unit, 16th in points allowed per game. That’s not great, but something on which to build.
Fans will be excited, as Chase Young has returned to practice for the first time since his ACL tear. There’s no expectation Young plays in the next few games, but a return appears to be imminent. That will undoubtedly lift the team.
Eagles to 9-0?
There’s not much to be added to what’s already been parsed about the Philadelphia Eagles. They are 8-0, and have looked as good as any team has in recent seasons.

If Philadelphia is able to cause turnovers early in the game, it will become unbeatable with the offense it possesses, The duo of Jalen Hurts and wideout AJ Brown are more than anything Washington’s defense is able to handle.
Eagles Another Double-Digit Fave
It’s no surprise the pick here is the Eagles. However, the spread can make it a little difficult. We’re not deterred, even with the hefty number. Philadelphia put the game away against homestanding Houston early in the final quarter, a final margin (29-17) that could’ve been more. Philly will likely pile it on against its NFC East rivals. Lay the 11.
