Win and stamp the post-season spot. This is the mission of the Washington Football Team, which, this Sunday (3), travels to Pennsylvania to face the Philadelphia Eagles, at 10:20 pm, at Lincoln Financial Field, in the match that ends the regular season of the NFL. Leader of the NFC East, with six wins and nine defeats, the Football Team knows that the Eagles, lanterns of the division, with four wins, ten setbacks and a draw, will want to say goodbye to their fans with a victory, increasing the degree of interest in match. In the event of defeat, the Football Team will lose the leadership of its division to the winner of the confrontation involving the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.
The Washington Football Team goes into the decisive confrontation going through a turbulent phase off the pitch. During the week, the franchise dismissed quarterback Dwayne Haskins, due to poor technical performance and off-field problems and coach Ron Rivera has not yet defined who will be the QB who will start the duel against the Eagles. Veteran Alex Smith has not played in the last two matches of the franchise because of a problem in one of his calves. If he is unable to take the field, the responsibility of guiding the Football Team will be borne by Taylor Heinicke, who started in the loss to the Carolina Panthers in week 16.
In addition to the doubt in the quarterback position, the team’s two main offensive weapons, the running back rookie Antonio Gibson, author of 11 ground TDs of the season and receiver Terry McLaurin, are not yet confirmed for the match.
After sending Carson Wentz to the bench, the Philadelphia Eagles took on another life with rookie Jalen Hurts leading the team’s attack, despite the negative streak of three defeats. On the other hand, the franchise’s secondary has given 406 yards for the Arizona Cardinals offensive and 377 yards against the Dallas Cowboys, the team’s last two opponents. It remains to be seen how the team will perform in the face of the Football Team attack, which is at risk of taking the field with considerable casualties.
According to the ESPN Football Power Index of the United States, the Washington Football Team appears as a favorite for the victory, with a 58.9% chance. The Philadelphia Eagles have a 40.8% chance of winning a positive result at the end of their participation in the regular season.
