Eagles at Redskins: Pregame Show
LANDOVER, Md. -- We're here at FedEx Field for tonight's tilt between the Eagles and Redskins and with all the extra cirricular nonsense surrounding the game, it's easy to forget this is a pivotal meeting between two NFL East rivals.
The Eagles and Redskins are both at the bottom of the standings, but hold winning records (4-3) and are a game and a half behind the Giants, who won today over the 49ers, 24-6, and a half game behind the Cowboys, who were idle this week.
The Redskins pose a challenge to the floundering Eagles with their formidable defense and their improving offense. Quarterback Mark Brunell hasn't played this well since his Jacksonville days and his top target, Santana Moss has been brilliant. Moss may be the best receiver this season in the NFL, save for one malcontent that shall remain nameless from this point onward.
