Who's picking the Eagles?

Time for our weekly look at who's picking the Eagles in tomorrow's 4:15 matchup with the Redskins. And a reminder that, as always, I'll be hosting our live in-game chat during the game. Les Bowen of the Daily News likes the Eagles, 20-13. The Daily News' Paul Domowitch goes with the Birds, 27-13. SI.com's Peter King likes the Eagles to pick up a 24-16 victory: Late in the game, all Dan Snyder can think is: "Now where'd I put Mike Holmgren's cell number?'' CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco picks the Eagles, 21-17: The Eagles are still alive in their quest to earn a playoff spot, while the Redskins are reeling. They lost at Cincinnati last week and haven't done much on offense the second half of the season. They will play tough here against a division rival, but the Eagles are rolling. CBSSports.com's Harmon Forecast goes with the Eagles, 19-17: Redskins QB Jason Campbell could struggle against an Eagles defense that made Browns QB Ken Dorsey the third quarterback in the last four games to complete less than 50 percent of his passes. Eagles QB Donovan McNabb faces a Redskins defense that continues to give up big plays each week. Last week, Bengals RB Cedric Benson took a screen pass 79 yards, which set up a score.
