The Eagles and Washington are just hours away from finally kicking off their Week 15 matchup after a COVID-19 outbreak pushed the game back from Sunday.

Washington is still without their top-two quarterbacks, but Ron Rivera’s group is starting to get some big names back and will wait until 4:00 PM to find out if they have Kyle Allen or starting quarterback, Taylor Heinicke.

There will be several big named position battles to watch and below you’ll find which team holds the edge at each position.
