Sunday NFL Football Analysis: The Philadelphia Eagles will try to snap a 10-game home losing streak Sunday against Washington and pull ahead of Dallas in football’s most mediocre division.  The Eagles are 5-5 and tied with the Cowboys who have a bye this week, so ending their home losing streak is even more important.  Nick Foles will be starting at quarterback for the third straight game.  He has 10 touchdown passes and no interceptions in his last two starts with a 155.3 passer rating.  He has the highest rating in the NFL among quarterbacks with 14 attempts per game.  Despite their home struggles, Philadelphia ranks fourth in total offense behind RB LeSean McCoy’s NFL best 932 yards from scrimmage. The Eagles started the season with a 33-27 win at Washington with Mike Vick at quarterback and there’s no reason not to expect similar scoring this week.  Foles did start two losses against Washington last season, but the Redskins have not played up to that caliber so far this year.  They are now 1-4 on the road after losing to Minnesota 34-27 last Thursday night.  They started 3-6 last year before finishing strong and making the playoffs and they’re going to need to start turning it around now if they’re going to get back there again.  Team defense has been Washington’s biggest problem, they’re giving up the 31st most points in the league and their run first offense has not been able to keep up.  QB Robert Griffin III is 2-1 against the Eagles but his play this season has us thinking he won’t be that effective in this game.  Washington’s defense does not match up well with the Eagles offense and with the way Nick Foles is playing right now it is going to be very hard for the Washington offense to keep up in this game.  The big play explosive ability of the Eagles offense is something Washington doesn’t have to this point this season and it will be the reason Philadelphia covers this spread.

Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles Game Prediction: 34-21 Eagles
What to expect in this NFL Football match up: 
The Eagles will score early, motivated to look good at home for the first time in a year.  This will make it very hard for the run heavy Washington offense to mount a comeback.  With QB Robert Griffin III throwing the ball more in the second half the Eagles will force a few turnovers and give the ball to LeSean McCoy to put the game away against a defense they should score at will against.  Philadelphia will be the new frontrunner in the NFC East after an impressive home win and Nick Foles will solidify his place as the Eagles starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.
