Beast Prediction Friday

Each Friday afternoon during the regular season, the NFC East blog makes its predictions in case anyone's still at work. But first, let's take a peek at what the experts came up with for Eagles-Redskins and Bears-Giants. The Dallas Cowboys have a bye week.

Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles: Chris Mortensen flirted with the idea of picking the Redskins when he joined us on the radio Thursday, but he couldn't muster the courage. All eight experts chose Michael Vick and the Eagles.

Mosley's pick: Redskins 24, Eagles 23: I know the Skins were lousy in St. Louis last Sunday but something tells me Mike Shanahan will have them ready to play against the Eagles. I think Donovan McNabb throws for 300 yards and three touchdowns in his homecoming. And yes, Eagles fans will give him a nice round of applause during introductions. I'm serious.

Chicago Bears at New York Giants: Mark Schlereth, Mike Golic and Eric Allen were the only experts who picked the Bears to win Sunday night. Apparently Mort and Adam Schefter still believe in Tom Coughlin after three weeks.

Mosley's pick: Giants 20, Bears 16: I think the Giants will respond to Coughlin in a big way in this game. They moved the ball really well against a tough Titans defense. On Sunday, they'll move the ball and limit their personal fouls. Have a splendid weekend.
