According to a report from ESPN 980 radio host Kevin Sheehan, the Eagles will play the Washington Redskins in the penultimate regular season game for the second straight year.
The game will reportedly take place on Saturday, December 26. No word on the start time, but the game is set to be at FedEx Field in
Washington Landover, Maryland.
As previously mentioned, the Eagles played the Redskins in a Week 16 game in 2014. The game didn't go so well for Philadelphia. The Eagles struggled to cover DeSean Jackson, who the team had unceremoniously released last offseason, and committed too many turnovers on offense. The loss to the Redskins essentially ended the Eagles' playoff hopes, though even if had they won that game the Cowboys still would have made the postseason since Dallas won out.
The Eagles are 3-1 against Washington in four games under Chip Kelly.
No word on when the first Eagles-Redskins game will take place in 2015.
