WFT Vs Philadelphia: Odds, How To Watch, Stream Or Listen

The Washington Football Team (6-9) are holding on to the hope that they can still grab the last spot in the playoffs. But the Philadelphia Eagles (8-7) are already holding down the No. 7 seed, and have no intention of letting it go. When the two teams met less than two weeks ago, Philadelphia beat Washington convincingly 27-17.

On top of that, Washington is coming off of an embarrassing 56-14 loss to the Cowboys, and the Eagles have won five of their last six.

Can Washington fare better now that it has a “healthier” lineup?

They do have both quarterbacks back, but running back Antonio Gibson being on the Covid list is a big miss for the WFT.

What time does the game start?

Kickoff is Sunday at 1 pm from Fed Ex Field in Landover, Maryland.

What TV channel is the game on?

The game will be shown on FOX.

Adam Amin handles play-by-play duty, and former Hog Mark Schlereth looks after the color commentary.

Playoffs Unlikely But Mathematically Still Possible For WFT

A three game losing streak and a couple of embarrassing losses in a row, would appear to have stripped the life from this 2021 WFT season.  However, the WFT are not out of it yet. There is a series of events that can transpire and get Washington into the playoffs. And it’s not that far-fetched or ridiculous either.

First and foremost, Washington have to win both of their two remaining games of course.

Eagles Run All Over Covid-Decimated Washington Team

It was close for a quarter. After that, things went about as expected for a team down a combined 20-plus coaches and players due to COVID-19. The healthy Philadelphia Eagles team quite literally ran all over the Washington Football Team and came away with a 27-17 victory.

Despite Washington jumping out to a 10-point lead, they had no answer for the Eagles ground game. Running Backs Miles Sanders and Jordan Howard, along with quarterback Jalen Hurts, teamed up to gash Washington for over 200-yards rushing. In fact, it’s the seventh consecutive game that the Eagles have rushed for more than 175 yards rushing. That hasn’t happened in the NFL for more than 35 years. The 1985 Chicago Bears were the last team to do so.

Gilbert’s Guts

Garrett Gilbert made the emergency start at quarterback for Washington, and did about as much as you can ask, given the situation. For a guy that only arrived Friday morning, he put on a courageous display. Especially given that the offensive line in front of him was patchwork, and didn’t protect him all that well.

His pocket was collapsing all game long.

Gilbert finished 20 of 31 for 194 yards passing. He stood in the pocket time after time. He extended plays and gave Washington a chance despite the enormous odds.

He played with “testicular fortitude.”

Clawing Back?

Washington did make a game of it early in the fourth quarter. They were aided by a pass interference call, but put together a solid drive nevertheless. Jaret Patterson scored his first NFL touchdown, and the Football Team were within three with plenty of time remaining.

But Washington couldn’t make the defensive stand they needed to. The Eagles marched down the field on the ensuing drive, and Jalen Hurts hit Greg Ward to re-establish the 10-point lead at 27-17.

What’s Next

The loss drastically hinders Washington’s playoff aspirations. At 6-8, they are currently on the outside looking in. They would ostensibly need to win their three remaining games to have a chance of getting the Wild Card.

That’s a tall order with division-leading Dallas up next, and Washington’s line-up as decimated as it currently is.

Bookies Don’t Like Washington’s Odds Of Beating The Eagles

It has been a chaotic week for bookmakers. A rash of Covid-19 positives amongst NFL players and coaches, forced the league to postpone three games – including the Washington versus Philadelphia game. Obviously these same injuries can also have a drastic outcome on the effect of games, and therefore, drastically effect a game’s odds.

The Football Team now has twenty-three Covid cases, including both of their quarterbacks. That earned them a two-day postponement until Tuesday. The two-day postponement is designed to allow time for the team’s players to produce negative tests ahead of their Week 15 matchup.

Banged Up Redskins Secondary To Face Tough Eagles Offense In Critical Match Up

Week Seven could be a make-or-break week for the Washington Redskins’ 2017 Playoff aspirations. Every game is important in a 16-game season – every divisional game even more so. When you’re facing the only team ahead of you in the divisional race, and losing gives them both wins this season and the first tie breaker, it’s pretty safe to say that the Redskins hopes for winning the NFC East this year could very well come down to the result of this early week 7 game. Beating the Eagles won’t guarantee them success, but losing to them could drastically affect the Redskins betting odds of getting to the playoffs via a divisional first place.

That’s no small feat given that the game will be played at Lincoln Financial Field, and the Redskins secondary could potentially have more holes than swiss cheese. Read More

Redskins Facing Tough Test this Week Against Rams

The Washington Redskins kicked off the 2017 season with a gut-wrenching loss to their division rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles. The team now has to put their disappointing season opening loss to the Eagles behind them, and turn their attention to their week two opponents, the Los Angeles Rams.

Since they were picked by many experts to finish fourth in the NFC East, the Washington Redskins season winning predictions are still on track.

The Rams are coming off a season opening win against the Indianapolis Colts. Sean McVay, the Redskins 2016 offensive coordinator, gets his first chance to go up against his former team as the head coach of the Rams. The game between the two teams is scheduled to start at 4:25 PM. ET.

McVay, who turned 31 in January, is the youngest head coach in NFL history. At the same 31-years-old, Washington coach Jay Gruden was coaching in the Arena League as the head coach of the Orlando Predators. Read More

Redskins Nation Unimpressed With Redskins’ Effort Against the Eagles

It only took one game, but one thing was quite certain on the social network airwaves on Sunday, Redskins fans were downtrodden. While 1/16th of a season does not a season make, it was apparent that the fan base saw next-to-nothing that would inspire even a glimmer of hope in Washington’s 30-17 loss to the Eagles.

It started bad. It finished bad. What happened in between was mediocre at best. The defense played better than the offense, but the Vienna Boys Choir might have put in a better offensive showing, so that isn’t saying much. And when the dust settled after the game, it was clear that this fan base is beat up. Tired of losing. Tired of fielding an embarrassing product. Tired of turning their head when they answer, “I’m a Redskins fan.” Tired of spending money on a product that doesn’t ever seem to do anything but go in big, bad circles. And it didn’t take sixteen games, it took one.

Here’s a collection of reactions to yesterday’s game from THN’s Twitter account. I actually thought that the mood was so somber that I would try and lighten the mood a bit. I tweeted:

Here are the sobering results – caution, some tweets are NSFW language – they weren’t removed because this is about the raw emotions of Redskins Nation: Read More
