Philadelphia and Washington meet for the first time this season. This is the first time Carson Wentz will play against his former team, adding to the already high stakes of a divisional game.

The Philadelphia Eagles are quickly rising up many people's power rankings after their win over the Minnesota Vikings. However, they still have the ever-competitive NFC East. With the Washington Commanders' offense showing promise, can the Eagles stay undefeated? Or will Washington bring them back down to earth?

Eagles vs. Commanders Prediction and Pick

If the Eagles are able to play against Washington the way they did against Minnesota, this is an easy win. According to the last several years, that won’t be a problem. The Eagles have won the last three matchups against Washington, and I’m backing them to do it a fourth time. 

Washington’s offense is going to be tough to stop, as it ranks in the top 10 in points/yards per game and points/yards per play. The Commanders’ weakness is their defense. This is a unit that ranks 30th in opponent yards per play, 32nd in opponent yards per rush and 27th in points per game allowed. The Eagles’ offense is the second-best rushing offense in the league – which will pose problems for the Commanders. 

Jalen Hurts looks comfortable in this offense with his new weapons, making the Eagles’ offense much more well-rounded than last season. 

After a near 40-point game to start the season and a dominant performance in Week 2, it’s hard for me to not back the Eagles against the spread.
