The Philadelphia Eagles 2015 NFL schedule continues on Saturday night as the team is set to play the Washington Redskins in a Week 16 game. The Eagles are 6-8 after losing to the Arizona Cardinals last week. Philadelphia absolutely must win this week's game. If not, they will be eliminated from the playoffs and Washington will clinch the NFC East. It's a do-or-die situation for the Birds.
Washington comes to Philadelphia sporting a 7-7 record. They've won their last two games. Kirk Cousins is playing really well behind center. Former Eagles wide out DeSean Jackson has been productive since returning from injury. The Washington defense hasn't been a shutdown unit but they've only allowed an average of 19.3 points in their last four games. They're going to be eager to knock the Eagles out of the playoffs for the second year in a row. Washington already beat the Eagles in October, so they'll be looking to go 2-0 on the season.
