Eagles. Redskins. Game day.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles visit the Redskins and really that’s all I need to write to get ready for this game, but this post would look a little weird with just one sentence, so let’s go over some items to keep an eye on today:

How will Halapoulivaati Vaitai fare in his first start? The 5th round rookie has yet to even dress let alone see any playing time in a competitive game. The coaching staff is extremely confident in him, but George Custer was really confident too.

Will Jim Schwartz keep his backup linebackers on the bench? Schwartz rotated that unit against the Lions and it cost the team.

Will Vinny Curry get more playing time? Schwartz didn’t rotate his DL much, and Curry and his new contract sat on the sidelines for most of the Lions game.

How many times will we see “Jay Gruden Face”? I’m going with three.
