Commanders plus 9 1/2 at Eagles

The Eagles have lost only once during Jalen Hurts’ last 21 regular season starts. Washington is the team owning that victory. That occurred last season with the Commanders upsetting the Eagles, 32-21, on a Monday night in Philadelphia.

The Commanders have played the Eagles tough in Philadelphia going 2-0-2 ATS the past four seasons.

I see the Commanders hanging in again on the road against the Eagles.

The Eagles are 3-0, but haven’t looked nearly as sharp in this early going as they did on their way to the Super Bowl last season. Philadelphia beat New England by five points and Minnesota by six before soundly whipping Tampa Bay this past Monday night. The Eagles have been helped by getting multiple takeaways during each of their first three games, the only team in the NFL that has done that.

Philadelphia’s passing attack doesn’t seem as crisp without offensive coordinator Shane Steichen, who took over the head coaching job with the Colts. The Eagles rank 23rd in passing offense.

Washington has a well above average defense. The Commanders have proven they can beat lower echelon opponents defeating the Cardinals and Broncos. They got buried by the Bills, 37-3, when stepping up in class at home last week.

But the Commanders are not nearly that bad. Sam Howell was playing well up to that game. He has two solid wide receivers and a reliable north/south runner in Brian Robinson. Washington’s defensive front easily is top-10 caliber. The Commanders also draw the Eagles on a short week.

I believe this line has gotten inflated based on how horrible the Commanders looked against the Bills and a national TV audience viewing how dominant the Eagles played against the Buccaneers.

So I’ll take this many points in my belief the Commanders won’t lose by more than single-digits, if not stun Philadelphia on the road for the second time in two years.

I hope to rebound strong today with my NFL after having one of my worst college football Saturdays ever going 1-5 on my premium/free plays. I am 16-7-1 on my premium/free plays this season NFL season looking to beat the league for the 26th time in 31 years.
