Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Philadelphia Eagles-Washington Redskins Week 6 game, with the line from OddsShark.
(-2) Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) at Washington Redskins (3-2), Sunday, 1 p.m. ET
Mike: Eagles. The Redskins have all sorts of injuries on the defensive side of the ball, which makes for a bad matchup against an Eagles offense looking to bounce back after a disappointing loss last week in Detroit.
Ricky: Redskins. Rookie Halapoulivaati Vaitai is tasked with filling the void left by starting right tackle Lane Johnson, whose 10-game PED suspension was upheld. Will this force Philadelphia to alter its game plan so Ryan Kerrigan doesn’t tee off on Carson Wentz? Who knows? But it’s not a positive development for the Eagles.
Andre: Eagles. The Redskins have the worst red-zone offense in football (35 percent), and there’s a chance they won’t sniff the red zone much either going up against an Eagles team that’s first in time of possession, fifth in turnover differential (+5) and eighth in yards per play allowed (5.0).
