Washington Football Team vs Philadelphia Eagles
Game Info: 1 PM ET at Philadelphia
What the Cowboys need: Win + WFT loss or tie to clinch NFC East
Likeliness to occur: 6/10
So, here we are. We are going to have to root for the Eagles on Sunday if the Cowboys get a lead early and we start scoreboard watching. Rooting for the Eagles isn’t really ideal, but I’ll take the NFC East any way we can get it.
Washington is decimated by injuries and COVID-19 right now. Philadelphia has to win this game to have any chance of stealing the final Wild Card spot. A lot of things are pointing in the right direction for the Cowboys in this game.
Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is trending towards healing up and playing this Sunday in a must-win game for Philly. On the opposite side, although it appears Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke will play, he is likely still feeling the effects of a three-hour onslaught of hits provided by the Cowboys defensive line.
I despise the Eagles. I despise Washington. Come Sunday, the main goal is the NFC East, and if that means an Eagles win is needed, then they’ve got my rooting interest. I want to think this likeliness is higher than a 6/10, but I just can’t quite put that much confidence in the Eagles.
