NFL Saturday game: Eagles-Redskins preview

Tonight: Eagles at Redskins, 8:25, NFL

Line/OU: Eagles by 3; 47½

A Washington win would complete a worst-to-first journey and clinch its first NFC East title since 2012. Philadelphia needs to win to stay in the hunt. It would secure its second division title in three years if it wins tonight then beats the Giants on Jan. 3. … Receiver DeSean Jackson, who played his first six seasons for the Eagles before coach Chip Kelly released him after 2013, has gotten in sync with Washington QB Kirk Cousins after missing seven games with injuries. He had six catches for 153 yards in a 35-25 win over the Bills, including a 77-yard TD.

Tom Jones' pick: Eagles 30, Redskins 20

Readers' pick: Redskins 72.4 percent
