Eagles updated 53-man roster vs. Commanders: News and notes for Week 10

The Philadelphia Eagles are less than 12 hours away from returning to the field for a Monday night matchup against an NFC East rival.

The Birds are a huge favorite and will look to start a season 9-0 for the first time in franchise history.

Jalen Hurts continues to cement his status for a new contract, and at the same time, Jonathan Gannon’s retooled defense will look to continue its strong play.
