The Philadelphia Eagles are one of just six undefeated teams remaining in the NFL, but the Washington Commanders will look to hand them their first loss of the season when the two teams meet head-to-head at FedEx Field on Sunday.

The Eagles have looked dominant through the first two weeks of the season and quarterback Jalen Hurts' MVP odds keep rising as a result. Meanwhile, Washington took a step back in a Week 2 loss to the Detroit Lions, but have a perfect opportunity to prove they are a sneaky playoff team this week.

Should the Eagles really be favored by almost a touchdown on the road? Do the Commanders have any chance of getting over the .500 mark with an upset victory? Here's what projection models and experts across the industry have to say about the Eagles vs Commanders Week 3 matchup.

The projection models back those picks up, too, but just barely. Two of the three models give Washington at least a 40% chance of pulling off an upset.

Divisional matchups are always tough to predict, so fans should prepare for a thrilling game on Sunday.
