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

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
