Eagles vs. Washington Game Predictions

Which side will win?

The Philadelphia Eagles are going to beat the Washington Redskins today. This much I know.

I don’t know if it’ll be a blowout. But the Eagles will win. They’re just a significantly better team than Washington right now. The only way the Eagles lose is if they beat themselves.

So, the real question is: will the Eagles make the playoffs? And since they’ll likely do their part, it comes down the Chicago Bears beating the Minnesota Vikings.

My head tells me the Vikings will win. They just need the game more. They’ve been playing better recently and they’ve been good at home this season. The Bears know the Rams losing isn’t super likely so they’re not going to quite be going all out to win.

My heart tells me Sunday isn’t going to be the last game of the Eagles’ 2018 season. It just doesn’t feel like this team’s story is done yet. And with me always pointing out that Kirk Cousins doesn’t win big games, how could I possibly think he’s going to step up for the Vikings? My brand has been building to this epic moment where he chokes and the Eagles get a playoff spot instead.

So, screw it. It’s not fun predicting the season ends here.

Eagles win, Bears win, and the Super Bowl repeat attempt is alive.
