The Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) were initially scheduled to host the Washington Football Team (6-7) on Sunday in Week 15, but due to a Covid outbreak among their opponent, the NFL went ahead and moved the game to Tuesday night. Since then, Washington has been able to activate some important players from their original list of 23 players ahead of their trip to Philly, BUT ended up losing a significant number of assistant coaches.
As Covid cases began spiking across the NFL, head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed that the Eagles took early action to protect their players and staff, and enacted enhanced protocols right away. Sirianni also confirmed that Philly’s run game will get a boost this week with both Miles Sanders and Jordan Howard ready to go. Jalen Hurts and Gardner Minshew still split a good portion of the reps last week to ensure they were both prepared, but Hurts wasn’t listed on the teams final injury report and is expected to play.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
