Who's picking the Eagles?

Our weekly look at who's picking the Eagles, along with some other links sprinkled in:

SI.com's Peter King goes with the Eagles, 23-10:

It's almost like the Redskins don't want to win. Who gives a guy in the building three weeks the keys to the offense?

SI.com's Don Banks has the Eagles ninth in his power rankings:

How many tens of thousands of words and pictures have been spent chronicling Michael Vick's two-month tenure in Philadelphia? And how much actual on-field impact has all that breathless coverage translated into for the Eagles? I believe the appropriate term would be much ado about nothing.

Accuscore has the Eagles winning, 22.3 to 17.

FoxSports.com's Peter Schrager goes with the Redskins, 20-16:

The last time the Eagles traveled to Washington, Redskins corner Fred Smoot and safety LaRon Landry combined to tackle Eagles wideout Reggie Brown at the 1-yard line as time expired to secure a 10-3 Washington win. Jason Campbell was given a much-needed vote of confidence earlier this week, and I think he somehow, some way, delivers under the Monday night lights.

All eight ESPN experts go with the Birds.

ESPN has the Eagles 12th in its power rankings.

Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com gives the Eagles a 24-14 win:

Can the Redskins get it together? Does taking calling plays away from Jim Zorn matter? Can Jason Campbell get it going? The answer to the first two questions is no. The answer to the third is if they let him. But the Eagles will be focused in a big way here after their bad road loss at Oakland. I don't like teams playing consecutive road games, but I buck that trend here.

Prisco has the Eagles 10th in his power rankings.

SI.com's King has the Eagles tied for 14th in his rankings:

Anyone wondering if just maybe Kevin Kolb would have played a better game in Oakland than Donovan McNabb?

ESPN's Bill Simmons has the Eagles covering the 7-point spread.

Matt Bowen of the National Football Post has the Eagles, 22-12:

Two teams who have had rough weeks, but it is hard for me to go with the Redskins at home when they have so many issues on offense and on the sidelines. I expect Greg Blache's defense to keep the 'Skins in the game, but a lack of big plays by this Washington offense will allow McNabb and Philly to push this lead out of reach in the fourth quarter—and Zorn will take the blame again on Tuesday morning.
