The Eagles have the advantage in six out of ten statistical categories. However, some of the numbers between the two are so close that it’s not really a strategic advantage. But one thing that stands out is that the Eagles have yet to win a home game this season. All their wins have come on the road, so this should be an advantage for the Redskins.
The Eagles are giving up a whopping 306 yards passing per game on defense. So this is something the Redskins should be able to exploit. The fact that the Eagles only give up 106 yards rushing suggests that since they have typically been in offensive shootouts, their opponents haven’t tried to run the ball as much.
