Washington, Philadelphia Week 17 Game Flexed To Sunday Night Football

The saved their season on Sunday, running the Eagles out of the building to the tune of a 37-17 victory. They kept their slim playoff hopes alive, and though they are currently playing the best football in the division, they'll need some help from those same hated Eagles next Sunday.

Washington sits in the drivers seat of the , needing just to win their regular season finale to clinch a division title. Per Washington themselves, the NFL has flexed that play-in-game against Philadelphia to next week.

The Cowboys and Giants are still set to play at Noon Central Time, meaning that the winner of that game will have to wait all day to see if they have earned a playoff spot. This keeps both games meaningful for the league, making sure fans are glued to their seats regardless of the outcome of game one.

Washington hopes to have ready for Sunday in primetime, but if he can't go they will likely turn again to Taylor Heinicke, who came in late during their loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

Washington has lost two straight, and the Cowboys are hoping they'll fall a third time.

The Eagles are more than capable of beating the no name Washington team and this is one of the few times that I will be pulling for them but I’m not going to get my hopes up too much because I believe that they will lay down like a whipped dog and go into the tank! If by some chance they beat the no names I will apologize!

Sadly I think you’re right. Bad vibes comes from that sideline in the 2nd half and the locker room hasn’t been good for a few years now. Don’t see them going all out for a moral victory in this state.

One other thought on the Washington football team. The Panthers beat them with no big name wide receivers, no big name running backs, no big name tight ends! I live in the Panthers back door and can’t really think of any superstar players other than Christian McCaffrey that they have!

James Vargas

Either Carson Wentz or J Hurts will be playing for their job. As well as other Philly players, so I do not think losing is on their minds. Besides, would the Eagles want the WFT to crown themselves in their stadium over a nationally televised game ? Dont think so. Philly will bear Washington.
