Week 16 – Dec. 26 – 8:25pm – Redskins at Eagles
I predicted the Redskins to beat the Eagles in Philly early in the season, But this time, I think the Eagles will return the favor, and get the win over Washington in week 16. Chip Kelly should have their team offense playing more cohesive late in the season.
Prediction – Eagles win
Redskins Record – (8-7)

Week 17 – Jan. 3 – 1:00pm – Redskins at Cowboys
There could be a playoff berth or a division title on the line in this game. Add that in with the nature of the rivalry and this might be quite a matchup. We know the Redskins can win on the road in Dallas as they proved it last season.
But can they do it again? The Redskins defensive improvement on talent in the offseason makes them better equipped to take on the Cowboys offense. But I think the Cowboys will win a close one at home here and keep the Redskins from the post season.
Prediction – Cowboys win
Redskins Record – (8-8)
8-8 probably won’t get the Redskins to the playoffs but it’s an improvement over the past few seasons of 3-13 and 4-12. Hopefully they’ll be better than 8-8 in 2015 but we’ll see.
