The Philadelphia Eagles will clash against the Washington Redskins on Sunday for an all NFC East match up between two struggling teams on 3-6. The game could be pivotal for how the remainder of the season goes for each of these two teams and both will be desperate to claim a confidence boosting victory today. The game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream by clicking on the link below.
Both teams come into this clash with records of 3-6, however, both teams also currently seem on very different paths. The Eagles are void of confidence at the moment and are sliding towards the abyss of elimination at present. They come into this clash on the back of a five game losing streak which has seriously undermined the team's plans for the postseason. Five straight losses is the worst run of form for Andy Reid in his 14 years with the Eagles.
The team recently changed things up in their coaching staff, but that has not seemed to have done the trick, and there are still serious concerns about the quarterback position. But time is running out for the Eagles to fix things this season.
Meanwhile, the Redskins were not expected to do that well before the season began, but those expectations were raised in the opening exchanges in the season. However, those hopes have faded as quickly as they arose and Washington enter this Week 11 match up on the back of three straight losses. In recent games against the Steelers and Panthers they have looked lackluster and void of imagination across the park.
However, all is not lost yet for the Redskins and five of their final seven games will be played within their division, meaning effectively their fate is in their own hands. If they can find some of that early season form and string together a good run of wins they might still be able to make a playoff spot.
But that likely must start with a win here today against the struggling Eagles. Another loss in such a pivotal encounter would slam the first nail in the coffin of the Redskins' season. However, the Eagles will be thinking exactly the same thing.
