    Commuters should avoid the eastern portion of the Beltway Monday evening if at all possible.

    As for the 85,000-plus fans expected for the game against the Philadelphia Eagles, "You better leave early,” fan Lamont Meredith said. “You better leave three, maybe four hours early."

    There aren’t any shortcuts, but the Morgan Boulevard Metro Station is less than a mile away.
