NFL Game Preview: Eagles Vs. Redskins (Dec. 3) Monday Night Football – Time Start, Channel, Players To Watch

The madness of the NFC East continues Monday night with a showdown between the reigning national champion Philadelphia Eagles (5-6) and the visiting Washington Redskins (6-5). 

Eagles Host Redskins In NFC East Showdown

The two teams are too close to irrelevancy for comfort, as the Dallas Cowboys now lead the division by a full game at 7-5. The entirety of Washington’s season rests on the shoulders of backup quarterback Colt McCoy, who is now the starter and in complete control of the playoff fate of the team. For both, the game is an absolute must-win, and a win for either significantly improves its chances of winning the division or making the playoffs. 

McCoy struggled mightily on Thanksgiving, where he slung picks at crucial times to the quick Dallas defense. He’ll face a similar opposition on Monday as his team will enter the numbing Philadelphia environment. 

On the other hand, the Eagles (just barely) beat the Giants (4-8) last week after New York helped Philly by only giving running back Saquon Barkley four carries in the second half. Somehow, this doesn’t bode well for Philly, as they have yet to string together two consecutive wins this season. The Eagles especially haven’t accomplished that against a winning team, as they haven’t beat an above .500 team all season.

 The Eagles have been ravaged on defense, and remain inconsistent due to several injuries. The offense has also continued that trend, failing to live up to any expectations from the 2017 season. The team’s offensive line has been exceptionally poor, and quarterback Carson Wentz can’t be the hero against the Washington defense that has stumped several good offenses this season.

The matchup, although in Philadelphia, signals positively for Washington. If McCoy can minimize his mistakes and maintain a steady offensive attack, the Redskins should be fine, especially if running back Adrian Peterson gets on a tear. 

It’s all up to the backup, who will get his chance at redemption when the game kicks off at 8:15 p.m EST on ESPN.
