McNabb gets another crack at the Eagles

Santana Moss leads the team in catches.

The storyline
Donovan McNabb got his revenge on the Eagles in the first meeting, but these teams appear headed in opposite directions. McNabb was benched for Rex Grossman last time out, but should be healthy and in sufficient cardiovascular shape for Mike Shanahan to stick with him for all 60 minutes, right?

Why you should watch
The Redskins are good for at least one circus-like subplot a week. Michael Vick was knocked from the game last time these two teams got together. It should be a very different challenge for the 'Skins on Monday night with the Eagles rolling now.

Did you know?
Vick is 3-1 as a starter on Monday night. ... Philadephia's Asante Samuel has 34 interceptions since 2006 -- the most in the NFL during the span. ... Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo has five sacks in his past four games. ... Washington's Chris Cooley is second among NFC tight ends with 39 receptions.
