Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles | Monday, Oct. 23 | 7:30 p.m. | ESPN
The Monday night showdown between the Redskins and Eagles features three #ProHogs. Jason Peters and Philadelphia host Martrell Spaight, Jeremy Sprinkle and Washington.
Spaight has totaled 18 tackles this season, including 10 solo stops. Coming off a bye week, Spaight played in limited minutes last week, getting only special teams reps, as his health improves from a rib injury against Kansas City on Oct. 2. His two games previous to the bye, Spaight tallied 17 total tackles, nine solo and one fumble recovery.
Jason Peters looks to make his 164th start in games played. Last week, Peters provided time for Carson Wentz to toss three touchdowns on 16-of-30 passing for 222 yards. Peters also helped the Eagles rush for 101 yards on 27 carries.
