Philadelphia Eagles vs Washington Redskins takes place in week 1 of the NFL 2013 regular season in the first of two games on Monday Night Football to get the season underway. The game is scheduled to start at 7.10 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on ESPN or online through live stream (details below).
This divisional clash should provide fireworks as both teams will be going all out to get their seasons off to the best possible start.
Both teams have faced troubled off-seasons and will be glad to finally get back out on the field and let their players do the talking.
This will see Mike Shanahan and Chip Kelly facing off for the first time, which should provide an added interest to the NFC East match up today.
The Redskins will be favorites to win this game, but if the Eagles can sneak a win here then it could provide a platform for them to achieve bigger things this season. However, most analysts look at the Redskins right now as the up and coming team in the NFC East and they are touted as be a likely dominator of the division for years to come. The Eagles have some very skilled players but need consistency and to show some guts to optimize what they can achieve. They are a team that could go off in either direction depending on how they develop and react to challenges.
Last season, the Redskins bested the Eagles in both games, on their way to the playoffs. They will be confident having put together a 7-0 streak to end their regular season – incidentally both games against the Eagles came in that stretch. The first game in Washington saw the Redskins demolish the Eagles 31-6, and although the return was much closer Game 2 finished 27-20.
