NFL Picks Washington Redskins McNabb returns to Philadelphia Eagles to face old team NFL Odds - Well, let's see how the crowd reacts to Donovan McNabb as he returns to Philadelphia, after playing there for 11 seasons. NFL Odds makers at Bodog Sportsbook have listed Philadelphia Eagles -6 favorites heading into this NFL Picks matchup Sunday afternoon.
The Redskins have struggled to gain any traction thus far in the 2010 NFL season, winning against the Cowboys in week one, blowing a big lead against the Texans and losing in overtime, and losing to the Rams in week three in the type of fashion that the presence of McNabb was supposed to prevent. McNabb has struggled adjusting to life in DC. He has passed for over 800 yards but with only 2 TDs. He has not benefited from a strong running attack as Clinton Portis with only 140 yards rushing, but McNabb has shown some chemistry with vets Chris Cooley and Santa Moss at receiver. The Redskins have to find a way to get offensive touchdowns on the board, whether through the air or on the ground.
Defensively, the Eagles improved greatly last week after surrendering 27 and 32 points in their first two NFL Picks games. Philadelphia dominated Jacksonville in their 28-3 NFL Picks win, allowing the Jags only 191 yards, including just 52 yards in the passing game. The pressured the quarterback all day, ringing-up 7 sacks, and 11 pressures. McNabb might see a lot of old pals Trent Cole and Trevor Laws and must keep the ball away from cornerback Asante Samuels. One area where the Redskins could find success is in the running game as Philadelphia is ranked near the bottom of the league.
While the Eagles have won two in a row, the Redskins had dropped their last pair - including an ugly 30-16 NFL Picks decision to the perpetually woeful St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
