AccuScore is back this week with some wacky statistical projections and predictions for today’s game between the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Last Sunday, AccuScore had the Redskins winning in 51 percent of its 10,000 computer simulations against the Cleveland Browns. This time around, the Redskins are favored considerably more.

This week’s AccuScore projections have much to do with the play of Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles. Foles had his struggles the first time he played the Redskins, but if he can cut out many of the same mistakes, his team’s chances of winning drastically improve.

Here’s the highlights of today’s AccuScore predictions for Redskins-Browns, according to ESPN:

– Redskins running back Alfred Morris is averaging more than 90 rushing yards per simulation.
– There’s a 23-percent chance the Eagles rush for more yards than the Redskins. If that happens, Philadelphia becomes 73-percent favorites.
– If Foles has more touchdown passes than interceptions, then the Eagles are 48-percent favorites. If he throws more picks than touchdowns, then Philadelphia is winning in just 15 percent of all simulations.
– AccuScore is going with the Redskins at 60 percent (6,000) out of 10,000 simulations.
