Friday Night Mights: Redskins vs. Eagles Edition

What bold predictions are being made by Redskins fans heading into this week’s NFC East showdown?

NFL: Preseason-Buffalo Bills at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

In this space each week, we make bold predictions about the upcoming game. I make countless such predictions every week, so I could lay claim to any number of correct “guesses,” but last week, my official Friday Night Might involved Will Blackmon and his role in our victory. I think it would be fair to say that I did not nail that one, BUT Blackmon did play pretty great.

**Listen to me argue for a game ball for Will in this week’s episode of “After the Whistle.”

This week, I think I will turn to another player not necessarily on the tip of everyone’s tongue when it comes to the Redskins. I have touted Jamison Crowder before, and nobody will be surprised if DeSean Jackson blows up against his former team. Even though Pierre Garcon had a touchdown against the Ravens, he is the guy I think is going to break out in a major way against the Philadelphia Eagles. I will boldly predict a stat line for Garcon that reads: 8 catches, 123 yards and two touchdowns (bold enough?).

What do you think?
