Philadelphia (3-8) at Washington (6-4)

Time: 1 p.m., chs. 5, 43.

Line: Redskins by 10 1/2.

Vs. spread: Eagles 6-5; Redskins 5-5.

Last week: Eagles lost to Colts, 44-17. Redskins beat Giants, 23-13.

Series: Redskins lead 69-54-5.

Last meeting: Eagles won, 35-28, on Nov. 14, at Philadelphia.

Outlook: Two weeks ago, the Eagles stunned the Redskins in rookie QB Donovan McNabb's starting debut. McNabb passed for only 60 yards, but the Eagles forced six turnovers as they beat the Redskins for the 11th time in their past 14 meetings. The question this week is whether Philadelphia can bounce back from the thrashing Indianapolis gave it last week. The Redskins lead the Cowboys by half a game in the NFC East but have lost three of their past five games.

Notable: Eagles lead the NFC with 28 take-aways (18 interceptions, 10 fumble recoveries).

EAGLES: Out: LB James Darling (ankle); WR Charles Johnson (knee); RB Kevin Turner (neck-injured reserve); WR Alex Van Dyke (elbow); DT Mark Wheeler (neck). Probable: LB Mike Caldwell (knee); K Norm Johnson (ankle); T Oliver Ross (toe).
