Coming off a bye week, there's little reason why the Washington Redskins ought to have moved much in either direction in anyone's power rankings. Former coach and current FOX sports analyst Brian Billick seems to agree, as he keeps the Redskins at No. 10 in his NFL power rankings. He previews Washington's forthcoming game against the Philadelphia Eagles, an NFC East division rival:
Coming off a bye week, the Redskins have a chance to put a stake in the heart of the Eagles and keep themselves atop the NFC East. The Eagles will test the newfound strength of the Redskins defense, but the 'Skins likely will find success in the running game against a struggling Philly defense.
Indeed, the 3-1 Redskins stand alone atop the division, with Philadelphia stuck in last place at 1-4. Further, the Eagles have lost four straight games, their longest losing streak since coach Andy Reid took over in 1999.
