Week 16: at Washington Redskins

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Eagles are in second place in the NFC East, one back of Dallas with two games to go - nobody has locked up the division yet, though, so this game against Washington is crucial for the Eagles, who have lost two straight games including the loss to Dallas last week. Back in Week Three, Nick Foles was slinging the football for Chip Kelly, but he wasn't cleared to resume football activities during a checkup last week (broken collarbone), so Mark Sanchez will start in this Week 16 renewal of the NFC East rivalry. Speaking of Sanchez, he's cooled down of late, throwing two interceptions and zero TDs for the Eagles vs. Dallas last week (17/28 for 252 yards passing). He relies on Jeremy Maclin (six targets for 4/98/0 receiving vs. Dallas last week) and Brent Celek (six for 4/52/0) pretty heavily these days - Jordan Matthews is falling off the radar and had just one target for zero catches last week (he tweaked a knee but returned to the game, albeit to little effect). The Washington pass D gave up 23/34 for 238 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions to Eli Manning last week (one sack for -12 yards), and Shuan Hill threw two TDs and zero interceptions at Washington two weeks ago (16/22 for 198 net yards, with four sacks taken for -15 yards). Washington has allowed the second-most TD passes this year with 31 given up and is tied for next-to-last in the NFL with only five interceptions generated. They are 17th in the NFL averaging 237.9 net passing yards allowed, and have 33 sacks this season (tied for 16th in the NFL). This is a good matchup for Sanchez and company - they should rebound against the suspect Washington secondary.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs DAL (7 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)

Cooper took the 2nd play from scrimmage and caught a 10 yard pass over the middle and pushed his way close to a first down. Cooper had another catch on the opening drive for another 8 yard gain where he was 2 yards short of the endzone. Cooper had another short reception of 7 yards over the middle of the field as he jumped up and bobbled in and out of his hands. Sanchez came right back to Cooper on the next play and delivered a bullet pass for a another 7 yard gain and an Eagles first down to the Cowboys 34 yard line. Cooper was targeted in the endzone but had no chance to make the catch as it was a bit underthrown and was easily knocked away. Cooper looked to have some confusion as Sanchez hit him in the side of his body without Cooper even seeing the play develop.

2014 Week 14 vs SEA (5 / 3 / 13 / 0 rec)

Cooper was targeted deep down the field and looked to have a step on the Seahawks secondary but the ball sailed a little over his head and Cooper failed to make an effort on the ball at the end of the play. He made a 4 yard catch on a 3rd and 6 but it fell a couple of yards short and the Eagles were forced to punt. Cooper made the catch and could get no room to run after the catch as the Seahawks defense continued to make immediate tackles and limit the amount of yards after the catch. Cooper caught another 4 yard pass over the middle of the field to start out the Eagles second drive of the second half. Cooper was targeted down the field for a big play but the ball got tied up in the wind and was intercepted by the Seahawks.

2014 Week 15 vs DAL (4 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Cooper caught the first offensive play for the Eagles but it was a short WR screen that ended going for no gain. Cooper dropped an easy pass on a 2nd and 5 that would have been a first down showing once again his inability to be a consistent target for Sanchez. Cooper had an easy 17 yard reception over the middle of the field at the end of the game while the Cowboys were in prevent defense.
