Week 17’s “Sunday Night Football” is the final game of the 2020 regular season, and there’s a lot on the line.
The Washington Football Team (6-9) travels to play the Eagles (4-10-1) with the fate of the NFC East hanging in the balance. The Cowboys and Giants will play at 1 p.m. ET in Week 17, and the winner of that game will make the playoffs as the division winner if Philadelphia wins Sunday night. But a Washington win pushes the WFT into the postseason.
The Eagles’ Week 16 loss means they won’t have anything to play for in terms of the playoff picture, but it’ll be one more chance for rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts to show that he’s the future answer in Philadelphia and not Carson Wentz.
Below is everything to know about this week’s “Sunday Night Football” game between the Eagles and Washington in Week 17.
