Five Keys to an Eagles win:
1.Establish the run. It limits RGIII’s snaps.
2.Force RGIII to beat you with his legs. He’s got a bad knee.
3.Load the box with defenders to disrupt the ’Skins’ ground game.
4.Make RGIII ucomfortable in the pocket.
5.Feed Nick Foles and dink-and-dunk game plan.
Special Teams: Redskins
The Pick: Redskins
Analysis: Even with Robert Griffin III nursing a strained knee, the ’Skins are a touchdown better than what’s left of Andy Reid’s Eagles. They’ve averaged 31 points and allowed just 20.4 during their five-game winning streak that began with a 31-6 rout of the Eagles at FedEx Field.
