Can Chase Young make an impact in Washington debut vs. Eagles

Eagles at Washington

1 p.m. ET | FOX

Matchup rating: 41.8 | Spread: PHI -6.5 (43)

What to watch for: There are two key matchups. First, keep an eye on Washington's defensive front, the strength of the team, vs. the Eagles' offensive line, which has been weakened. But the second is Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin against Philly cornerback Darius Slay. McLaurin caught five passes for 72 yards in a matchup versus Slay when he played for Detroit last season, and in two games against the Eagles, he caught a combined 10 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns. -- John Keim

Bold prediction: Chase Young will begin his NFL career with a pair of sacks. The Eagles' offensive line had a rough summer, losing a pair of starters to injury in Brandon Brooks and Andre Dillard, while a third, Lane Johnson, was hobbled for much of camp with an ailing ankle. Jason Peters, 38, moved back out to left tackle this week after training this offseason at guard and will have to quickly adjust to fend off Young and the rest of Washington's formidable pass-rushers. -- Tim McManus

Stat to know: In seven career starts against Washington, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has a 5-2 record with 15 passing touchdowns.

Injuries: Eagles | Washington

What to know for fantasy: The Eagles ended the 2019 regular season on a four-game win streak and led the league in running back fantasy points over that stretch (163). That run included a game in Washington (Week 15) in which Miles Sanders scored a season-high 35.2 points. See Week 1 rankings.
