Week 7: at Philadelphia Eagles

All RB vs PHI

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Redskins offensive line this season has been a strength even though Trent Williams has been dealing with a knee injury. Matt Bitonti has this offensive line as his number five overall offensive line and an A grade as a run blocking unit. Rob Kelley is unlikely to play in this game as he continues to deal with a week-to-week with an ankle injury which means it will once again be Samaje Perine at running back as the power back and Chris Thompson as the speed back. Neither were overly successful against the 49ers last week as the team averaged just 2.8 yards-per carry in that game. The team will continue to mix and match running backs to try to find the hot hand until Kelley returns from injury and part of it will be game script dependent as if they get out to a lead expect more Perine and if they get behind expect more Thompson carries. Earlier this season, the Redskins ran for 64 yards against the Eagles 30 of those were Kirk Cousins. The Eagles on the season have been the best-run defense in football by a wide margin as they are allowing just 65.7 yards per game rushing. Game script has also helped this defense as they are 10th in yards per attempt, so part of their dominant yards per game has had to do with opponents abandoning the run due to an early lead. A lot of this has to do with game script, however, as the Eagles are 10th in terms of yards per attempt which is still good, but shows that this run defense is not as elite as it appears on paper. Last week, this team held the Carolina running backs to a total of 9 yards on 14 carries last week. They did allow 71 yards rushing to Cam Newton, but were very tough against the actual running backs on the Panthers. Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, and Tim Jernigan have been a big part of the Eagles success as they have dominated opposing offensive lines this season while Malcolm Jenkins at safety and Nigel Bradham at linebacker have led to this run defenses dominance so far this season.
