Which five Philadelphia Eagles are key to a win over the Washington Redskins this week for the season finale?
Well, we’re finally here. The end of the 2018 NFL season is just a day away. It’s a bittersweet time for Philadelphia Eagles fans all over. Some are upset that the season is nearing an end, and there may or may not be playoffs in the Eagles future. Meanwhile, there are a good handful of Eagles fans who are happy to see this nightmare season filled with injuries come to an end.
Regardless of how you feel though, understand that the 2018 Eagles are not finished quite yet. Besides the fact that there’s a chance the Birds can still squeak their way into the playoffs, it’s still essential to root for the Eagles during Week 17 no matter what for a couple of reasons. One, the Eagles will have the opportunity to sweep the Redskins for the second year in a row. For the last few years, the Redskins have had the Eagles number, but now the tables have turned.
Reason number two being that it’s always fun to end the season with a win, whether it genuinely matters or not. I mean, who wants to see their team finish the season with a loss? Unless some significant draft pick is on the line, nobody should want that. And for the Eagles, they won’t be anywhere near the top ten range.
Let’s just hope for a Birds win on Sunday, and hopefully, those guys over in Chicago pull off a win against the Vikings. First, the Eagles need a few guys to help lead the charge to take care of business in Washington though. So, which five Eagles are key to a Week 17 victory over the ‘Skins?
