The Philadelphia Eagles’ final game of 2020 will be here before you know it.

The time has come Iggles fans. It’s officially here, the last game of the 2020 season. The Philadelphia Eagles are set to host the rival Washington Football Team in Week 17, but unlike the past few seasons, the Birds aren’t competing for any postseason berths. Instead, a win hurts their draft position, and as you might imagine, that’s been all anyone wants to talk about.

It seems that the last time these two division rivals faced off was a lifetime ago, but the way that game ended was a telltale sign of things to come for the remainder of the season. Many things have happened to these two franchises over the course of this year, including quarterback changes.

It is an uneasy feeling for fans these past few months with just how this season turned out for the Eagles. However, according to the Eagles leadership, they are not planning to lose to the Football Team. In fact, Iggles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz stated the following during his press conference Tuesday morning.

"We have a division opponent that’s going to try and celebrate on our field. We got to have a no-hat rule this week."

What Schwartz is referring to is the possibility of the WFT wearing their NFC East division champions attire if they were to win. Is everyone caught up? Great! Let’s dive into a few questions surrounding this Week 17 matchup.
