Lorenzo Reyes: Eagles 26, Commanders 20

Philadelphia is the better team and should win this game. But after their Monday night performance, I think the Eagles are being overvalued slightly here and I also think that Washington’s familiarity with them in the division keeps this closer than the line indicates.

Safid Deen: Eagles 24, Commanders 17

Jalen Hurts is in full command of the Eagles' offense, and it’s a sight to see for Philadelphia fans. Hurts has been masterful in his first two games, and he’ll lead the Eagles to a pivotal NFC East win over Carson Wentz and the Commanders this week. Philadelphia’s defense, which shut down the Vikings last week, gives them the edge over Washington in this one.

Lance Pugmire: Eagles 28, Commanders 20 

Jalen Hurts has quieted the skeptics by elevating his game and here's a divisional opportunity to prove the strides are consistent. Without establishing its running game yet, Washington is left to bank on ex-Eagle Carson Wentz to out-do Hurts.

Jarrett Bell: Eagles 28, Commanders 24

Nate Davis: Eagles 30, Commanders 24

Tyler Dragon: Eagles 30, Commanders 21
