In what could be one of the biggest games to end the 2020 regular season, the Washington Football Team will head to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles in what is a must-win game for Washington to take the division and head to the playoffs.

Philadelphia has been knocked out of playoff contention, while the rest of the NFC East division still has a chance to win the division. If Washington is not able to beat the Eagles, the winner of the division could be the Dallas Cowboys or the New York Giants, depending upon who wins that game in Week 17.

Washington will be getting back Alex Smith, Terry McLaurin, and possibly Antonio Gibson for Sunday, which could be huge considering that the Eagles will be without several key players. It will be rookie Jalen Hurts' first time going up against one of the top 5 defenses in the league, which could be a problem for him.
