Philadelphia Eagles 

NFL Team Philadelphia EaglesThe Philadelphia Eagles, with an ambition to sustain their status as the team with the best NFL record, are in top form. Their remarkable record of 10 wins in the last 12 road games speaks for itself. Jalen Hurts, with a commendable completion rate, has been instrumental, supported by A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith’s combined 1,192 receiving yards. The Eagles also pride themselves on their ground game, averaging 142.7 yards per match. On the defensive front, they’ve managed to keep their adversaries at bay, allowing just 20.1 points per game. Historically, their performance against NFC opponents and in Week 8 games has been stellar. Despite leading in defense against rushing yards, their total punt yards need attention.


Washington Commanders

NFL Team Washington CommandersThe Washington Commanders, aiming to even their record, are facing a challenge given their recent home game performance. Sam Howell, their quarterback, has showcased consistent play, and the duo of Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel have combined for significant receiving yards. Their ground game, though, lags behind, averaging 86.1 yards. The Commanders’ defense has been under pressure, conceding an average of 27.1 points per game. Their record in October as home underdogs against NFC East rivals is noteworthy, but the points conceded in the first half of the games remain a concern.



While the Eagles might be wary after their recent win against the Dolphins and an impending match against the Cowboys, the Commanders’ recent loss to the Giants and internal locker room dynamics post that defeat might tilt the scales in favor of the Eagles. The Eagles have a record of consistent performance this season, and having already secured a win over the Commanders, they seem to have the upper hand. The -6.5 on BUSR’s NFL Futures seems reasonable. Betting on the Eagles seems like a safe call for this showdown.
