Redskins at Eagles: How to watch and what to watch for
The Washington Redskins are set to take on a desperate divisional opponent on national TV. What more could you need to get you through a Monday?
Here’s how to watch and what to watch for tonight:
Opponent:Philadelphia Eagles (5-6)
Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia
When: Monday, Dec. 3, 8:15 p.m.
Radio: The Team 980
What to watch for: Not only are the Redskins trying to avoid losing their third straight game, a win would finally be regular season victory No. 600 for the franchise. Only four teams (the Bears, Packers, Giants and Steelers) have reached that mark so far. ... This is the Redskins’ first game since safety D.J. Swearinger called out the team’s preparation following the Thanksgiving loss to Dallas, so it will be interesting to see how the defense comes out against Carson Wentz and company. ... RB Darren Sproles is expected to play for the Eagles after fully practicing Saturday. Sproles has missed 10 games with a hamstring injury, but rookie Josh Adams has had a star turn in his place. ... It’s the Redskins’ second and final Monday Night Football game of the year. They surely will hope to post a better performance than they did when they lost 43-19 to the New Orleans Saints in October.

As long as Dan Snyder owns the #Redskins, the franchise is beyond salvation, no matter what Brian Lafemina’s motto or goals were. @thomloverro reacts to the Reuben Foster signing: https://t.co/VmUB39TV8h WashTimes Sports (@WashTimesSports) November 30, 2018
