Looks like tonight won't be the last time the Eagles line up against a Washington Redskins team with Donovan McNabb under center. Fresh off getting benched by head coach Mike Shanahan two weeks ago, McNabb reportedly agreed to terms Monday on a five-year, $78-million extension that will keep him Washington for the foreseeable future. Reportedly, $40 million of the deal is guaranteed.
Of course, McNabb and the Redskins play the Eagles tonight on Monday Night Football in what is a pivotal division game. With the New York Giants' loss yesterday to the Dallas Cowboys, the Eagles can put themselves in a tie for first-place in the NFC East with the Giants with a victory tonight. The Eagles and Giants meet for the first time in 2010 next Sunday night.
The Redskins, meanwhile, can go to 3-0 in the division and 5-4 overall if they beat the Eagles at home.
