He just made his first Pro Bowl, so you’ll have to excuse Fletcher Cox for a being a bit boisterous.
“I’m guaranteeing a win,” Cox said to reporters. “What am I supposed to say? That I think we’re going to lose or something? No.”
I agree, what was he suppose to say?
The guarantee adds big time pressure, but I picked the Eagles to make the Super Bowl before the season started, so we’ll see if Cox and crew can back up the big-time talk.
The Redskins are in first place in the NFC East at 7-7, only needing a victory over the 6-8 Eagles to clinch a playoff spot. If the Eagles win the next two, including the season finale against the Giants, they’re in.
