After massive COVID-19 breakout among the Washington Football Team, this crucial game between NFC East rivals was moved from Sunday to Tuesday. And the matchup will have a huge ripple effect on the NFC playoff picture.
The Washington Football Team (6-7) is currently sitting in the No. 7 seed in the conference, the last spot in the playoffs. But the Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) are just behind them in the No. 9 seed. This matchup will be the first of two between both teams, with the other taking place just two weeks later.
Washington is coming off of a disappointing 27-20 loss to the Cowboys in which Washington allowed Dallas to race out to a 24-0 lead at halftime. Though Washington outscored Dallas 20-3 in the second half, the Cowboys' defensive effort proved to be too much, in particular along the line, where Dallas generated five sacks and nine quarterback hurries.
After Washington announced starting quarterback Taylor Heinicke tested positive for COVID-19, joining backup QB Kyle Allen on the COVID reserve list, WFT now must turn to practice squad quarterback Kyle Shurmur — unless Allen is able to test out of protocol.
Aside from the home-field edge, Philadelphia has another advantage in Week 15. The team is coming off its bye.
