The Philadelphia Eagles (8-7) are back on the road in Week 17 to play the Washington Football Team (6-9) for the second time in 13 days.
Both team have been able to active a large number of their players and coaches from the COVID/Reserve list since their Week 15 matchup, but Washington did add two important players to that list this week: Antonio Gibson and Ereck Flowers. The Eagles will likely be a few players of their own due to COVID, but perhaps more concerning is the running back room, which will be without Miles Sanders.
Still, the Eagles have a chance to clinch a spot in the playoffs in Week 17, with a few scenarios playing out.
- Eagles win their road game against the Washington Football Team
- New Orleans Saints lose their home game against the Carolina Panthers ... OR ... the San Francisco 49ers win their home game against the Houston Texans
- Minnesota Vikings lose their road game against the Green Bay Packers
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
