>> ♪ >> the eagles getting ready for washington. should be a win. there's no way you should lose to a team owned by daniel snyder that has kirk cousins at quarterback not if you're a playoff contender at least but there is some cause to worry about the run game. they're fifth in the league in rushing. matt jones and alfred morris can run the rock. the eagles run d has been good but it hasn't faced a ground attack quite like this. >> yeah, we've been good against the run but i'm not beating my chest we have two losses and one win. we've got lot to improve on.
