Redskins vs. Vikings.  Here are Five Washington Redskins players to keep an eye on during the Sunday contest with the Philadelphia Eagles.

5.  Nick Williams, WR - Williams was recently promoted by the Redskins from the practice squad.  Look for him on special teams and possibly lining up in the slot on offense.

4.  Stephen Bowen, DE -  It will be important for the Redskins will need to get a pass rush on Eagles QB Nick Foles.  Stephen Bowen has not recorded a sack yet this season, so Sunday would be a great time to start.

3.  Brian Orakpo, OLB -  Brian Orakpo has had  solid all around season for the Redskins.  However, just like Bowen above him, he will need to have an impact against the Eagles as a pass rusher.  The Redskins can’t afford to give QB Nick Foles time to find open receivers.

2.  Chris Chester, RG -  Chester has struggled mightily in pass protection lately, and he will need to step up his performance against the Eagles.  Chester leads the O-line in QB hurries allowed, and QB Robert Griffin III will need more time in the pocket down the stretch than he had against the Vikings.  LW # 1

1.  London Fletcher, ILB - Considering what Eagles running back LeSean McCoy did to the Redskins defense in week 1, it will important that London Fletcher has a big game.  Fletcher has struggled at times this season, and if the Redskins are to win, he may need his best performance.
