Open thread recap: Eagles' rally falls short against Redskins

Eagles NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles are now 5-7 after an embarrassing loss to the (at the time) 3-7-1 Cincinnati Bengals. With realistic playoff hopes essentially out the window, the Birds will face a team that has owned them recently in the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins head into Philadelphia to face the Eagles with 12 players listed on their Friday injury report, while the Eagles are very healthy, as they've been all season. You can find the Eagles-Redskins inactive list with analysis here.

The Eagles head into this game as one-point underdogs. I see the Redskins' dominance over the Eagles continuing, while the rest of our staff agrees that it's just too hard to justify picking the Eagles to win at this point.
