The Philadelphia Eagles will look to recover and take back the lead in the NFC East with a road victory against the Washington Redskins.

The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off a rough Sunday night loss to the Dallas Cowboys, and they are looking to win out to take the NFC East title once again.
They will have a prime opportunity to recover against the Washington Redskins on Saturday. The Redskins are one of the worst teams in the NFL as they possess a 3-11 record and are reeling in a six-game losing streak.
Meanwhile, the Eagles have a 9-5 record with a two-game losing streak. Quarterback Mark Sanchez struggled greatly in his second game against the Cowboys as he was held to 252 yards and two interceptions on 17-of-28 passing.
Running back LeSean McCoy also had a forgettable performance as he only rushed for 64 yards on 16 carries.
For the Redskins, quarterback Robert Griffin III will be making another start as Colt McCoy injured his neck again in a 24-13 loss to the New York Giants.
Griffin had one of his more promising performances of the season with 236 yards and a touchdown on 18-of-27 passing.
The Eagles have a vulnerable pass defense, so Griffin will look to take advantage of this weakness and hope that the Redskins defense can at least somewhat neutralize a high-octane Eagles offense.
