When the NFL released the 2020 schedule, no one could have predicted that in Week 14 when the Eagles hosted the Saints, that rookie QB Jalen Hurts would be starting for Philadelphia and QB Taysom Hill would be starting for New Orleans. But, 2020 has been weird, and here we are.
Eagles’ coach Doug Pederson made the decision to bench Carson Wentz late last week against the Packers and chose to go with Hurts on Sunday as the starter. The team is doubling down on their effort to give rookies and young players more snaps through the end of the season to get them experience, and to have more film to evaluate.
The Saints could clinch the NFC South with a road win on Sunday against the Eagles. The team would be 11-2, and with the Buccaneers 7-5, even if the two teams finish the season with the same record, the Saints would win the tie-breaker thanks to their sweep of Tampa Bay earlier this season.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
