STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES — Chance of heavy rain in area Sunday. … Eagles QB Sam Bradford has four INTs and 72.5 passer rating. … After rushing for only 21 yards on 11 carries through first two games, Eagles RB DeMarco Murray missed Week 3, and his status for Sunday is uncertain. … RB-PR Darren Sproles scored once on punt return and once on run last week. Redskins’ special teams have had problems, so look for P Tress Way to kick away from Sproles. … WR Jordan Matthews was only Eagles wideout to catch pass in Week 3. His first two NFL TDs came against Redskins last season. … Redskins have only allowed four sacks, and Eagles’ defense only has produced five sacks. … Since start of 2014, Eagles LB Connor Barwin tops NFC with 16 1-2 sacks. He has two this season. … Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has four INTs, two apiece in Washington’s two losses. … Cousins’ most yards passing in game was 427 against Eagles last season. … Redskins FB Darrel Young has four TDs (two running, two catching) in last three games against Eagles. … Since 2013, WR Pierre Garcon’s 198 catches are most in NFC. … TE Jordan Reed leads Redskins with 19 catches. … Redskins could be without starting CBs DeAngelo Hall and Chris Culliver because of injuries. … Fantasy Tip: Looking for sleeper? Try Redskins rookie WR Jamison Crowder, who had six catches last week. Last time he faced Washington, Eagles TE Zach Ertz caught career-best 15 catches for 115 yards.
