Washington Set for MNF Showdown in Philly

The Redskins have a rugged NFC East test with the Philadelphia Eagles on the road tonight.  The “City of Brotherly Love” hasn’t been very friendly to the “Burgundy and Gold.”  The Birds have grabbed 10 of the last 14 games played between the rivals.  Last year, Washington was drilled, 27-3.  Cornerback Fred Smoot says he wants to make sure the game is closer this time by holding Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb in check.  Washington won its season opener at home last weekend.  Philadelphia dropped its first test of 2007 on the road. 

There is a good chance the team will play tonight’s road test with the Eagles without defensive end Phillip Daniels.  He sprained his foot last weekend against the Miami Dolphins.  Over the weekend, Daniels said it might be best for him to sit this one out and start getting ready for this coming weekend’s home game with the New York Giants. If Daniels doesn’t go, Demetric Evans probably would start.  The only other defensive end on the roster is rookie Chris Wilson, who debuted against Miami.
