The Philadelphia Eagles have a chance to play spoiler in Week 17.

The Philadelphia Eagles will be hosting the Washington Football Team for a Week-17 primetime game this Sunday. The outcome will determine the postseason fates of three different teams that call the NFC East home.

If the Birds win on Sunday, the WFT playoff hopes will end in the City of Brotherly Love. The division title will then be given to the winner of the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants matchup, so if you are a Giants or Cowboys fan, you’re hoping for an Eagles victory. However, if the Eagles lose, then the division champion will be Washington.

So why should you, as an Eagles fan, stay up to watch this Week 17 divisional game? It’s simple. It’s because you’ll get to see a lot of younger players in action that are looking to get some real playing time. This will help paint a clearer picture of what the future of this team will look like (maybe).

Also, this isn’t going to be a freebee for Washington. In fact, the Football Team is almost as banged up as the Birds are heading into this game. Seriously, have you, as an Eagles fan, checked out both the Football Team’s and the Eagles’ injury reports?

Until then, let’s dive into some bold predictions for Philadelphia’s final game of what’s been a long season.
