The Philadelphia Eagles will visit the Washington Redskins for the first Monday Night Football game of the new season. Chip Kelly hopes to start off his first NFL coaching tenure with a win on the road against a Redskins team that will welcome back quarterback Robert Griffin III and pass rusher Brian Orakpo from injury. Philadelphia will employ its new fast-paced offense against the Redskins, hoping to wear out the Washington defense with their speed. The Redskins will employ the running game to control the time of possession, with running back Alfred Morris handling the load. Washington was able to sweep Philadelphia last season, but with a new Eagles coaching staff, the slate is wiped clean for this NFC East showdown.
