The line on this game has trended from -8 to -10.5. Action on the spread was relatively balanced. Philadelphia was seeing some of the most lopsided moneyline action however. 

ABOUT THE REDSKINS (2018: 7-9, 3RD IN NFC EAST): Adrian Peterson is on the cusp of a pair of honors, as the veteran resides one rushing touchdown shy of surpassing Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Brown (106) for fifth place in league history. Should that rushing score come on Sunday, Peterson would join Marcus Allen (12), Chuck Muncie (11) and Priest Holmes (10) with double-digit touchdowns in season-opening games. Washington will be playing without Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams (holdout), with either Donald Penn or Ereck Flowers starting in his place. The availability of tight end Jordan Reed (team-leading 558 receiving yards last season) is also in question as he deals with a concussion sustained two weeks ago in a preseason game against Atlanta.

ABOUT THE EAGLES (2018: 9-7, 2ND IN NFC EAST): Wideout DeSean Jackson led the NFL in yards per reception (18.9) with Tampa Bay last season and is poised to open up defenses for Wentz when he begins his second stint in Philadelphia. The speedy Jackson is known for his fast starts, highlighted by his five season-opening games of at least 100 receiving yards -- one shy of Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin for the most in league history. Tight end Zach Ertz is coming off a career year in which he reeled in a franchise record for receptions by a tight end (116) to go along with 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns. An overhauled backfield now features Jordan Howard (Chicago) joining versatile rookie Miles Sanders, who was selected out of Penn State in the second round of the draft.

Stat to Know From ESPN.com: The Eagles are 8-2 in their past 10 season openers, tied for the best season-opening record in the NFL (with the Broncos and Patriots) during that span. Meanwhile, the Redskins have lost five of their past six season openers.
