The Eagles will need to beat the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football to keep it that way.
Monday’s prime-time game presents a big opportunity for the Eagles. A win over Washington would mean 6-1 overall, 5-0 in the conference, and 3-0 in the division. Barring a massive collapse, the NFC East race could essentially be over.
With this in mind, Washington will likely not go down easily. Much like when the Giants were battling to keep their season alive in Week 3, Jay Gruden’s side will be bringing a fight to Philly.
The good news is that the Eagles are well-equipped to handle the challenge. They’re mostly healthy coming off 11 days rest. Washington, who will be without top cornerback Josh Norman, can’t say the same.
It goes without saying that the Eagles will need another big performance from NFL MVP favorite Carson Wentz in order to walk out of MNF with a win. It’ll take good play-calling from Doug Pederson and a strong defensive effort from Jim Schwartz’s unit as well.
The feeling here is that this game will be a good battle. There’s a lot on the line for both sides, so the pressure is on.
Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
