As we mentioned from the jump, the Washington Redskins' game against the Philadelphia Eagles is a very important one in their quest to get back into the NFC East race. Thus far this season, the Redskins have performed well against good teams and played down to the competition against bad teams. The Redskins have also performed best in the face of adversity, and they've struggled when dealt with prosperity.
The odds for Monday Night's game back this up. Despite playing at home, and despite coming off a bye week, the Redskins are underdogs to the Eagles on Monday night. The Vegas oddsmakers probably like how Philadelphia is playing in recent weeks, and they don't recognize the Redskins' win in Philadelphia earlier in the season because Michael Vick wasn't playing. Still, if you're a Redskins fan, you might feel a little disrespected.
