LANDOVER, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles will kickoff their 2013 NFL campaigns tonight, both putting to bed an offseason that can only be described as eventful.

Here is a look at how the NFC East rivals have matched up historically.

Series Overall

Monday marks the 156th time the two teams will meet.

The Redskins hold the series advantage with a 80-70-5 record all-time against the Eagles.

Shanahan Breaking Even

Including his time as head coach of the Denver Broncos, Mike Shanahan is 5-5 in his career against Philadelphia.

To be fair, newly minted Eagles coach Chip Kelly is also even all-time against Washington — 0-0.

Remember The Last Meeting

The pair last met December 23, 2012 when the Redskins defeated the Eagles 27 – 20 in Philadelphia. Robert Griffin III threw a pair of touchdown passes in the victory.
