The 9-5 Eagles seem in great shape headed into today’s Redskins game against a 3-11 team, but with Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles still out and the Eagles having lost two straight, all bets are off. Worse yet, all the pressure is on the Eagles to win, as a loss could push Philadelphia out of the playoff picture completely. The TV options for the Redskins vs Eagles game live are limited today, but you can watch Eagles vs Redskins game online free live stream as well.
Kickoff for this rare Saturday Redskins vs Eagles game live is 4:30 EST / 1:30 PST from FedEx Field. The Eagles are 8.5-point favorites over the Washington Redskins.
The Eagles played from behind against the Cowboys last Sunday night, turning a 21-0 deficit into a 24-21 lead. But Mark Sanchez threw two interceptions in the second half that contributed to the Eagles losing to the Cowboys 38-27 at home. It was their second straight loss and dropped Sanchez to 3-3 since filling-in for the injured Foles.
As a result, fans began silently hoping for Foles’ broken collarbone to be healed enough for him to return as they watch Eagles eagles game live online or on TV today. Unfortunately, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said it’s not even close, giving Sanchez a chance to break his slump and return to the form he showed when he first came in for Foles.
Quarterback injuries are the story for the Redskins, too, but what’s new? Washington has made five quarterback changes this season. The latest came this week as Robert Griffin III (RG3) regained his starting role with Colt McCoy being placed on the injured list (neck). RG3 hasn’t been particularly mobile this year, which doesn’t bode well for Washington as we watch Eagles online free live streaming against the Redskins. The Eagles have 47 sacks this season, while the Redskins have allowed 53 sacks. If RG3 doesn’t show signs of his old self, the beleaguered QB could be in for a long day.
The pressure is all on Philadelphia to win today on the road. The NFC East title is still up for grabs between the Eagles and Cowboys, and Philly has to win out if they hope to grab it. The Cowboys will also have to lose either tomorrow or next Sunday (ironically against the Redskins) for the Eagles to win the division. If the Cowboys win both weeks, the Eagles could very well be an 11-win team that doesn’t make the playoffs.
