Did you know?

The Eagles enter week 17 with a league leading 49 sacks and could become just the third Eagles D to lead the NFL in sacks (1991 & 2002).

Also, with just 25 receiving yards DeSean Jackson will reach 900 for the year becoming just the 5th player in NFL history to reach 900 yards in each of his first 4 seasons.

Familiar Faces

Matchup history

This is the 155th meeting between these teams. The Eagles are 16-9 against the Reskins under Andy Reid and have won 4 of their last 5.
