Eagles vs Washington coverage map: why some NFL fans can’t watch Tuesday’s soccer game on TV
The Eagles host Washington in Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season. They were originally scheduled to meet on Sunday afternoon. However, things have changed following a COVID outbreak in the Washington organization.
Washington had 23 players on the COVID roster at one point over the weekend, and to slow the spread of the virus, the NFL chose to postpone its game against the Eagles to Tuesday. This will give Washington more time to remove some of those players from the COVID roster while the Eagles will have more time to rest Jalen Hurts’ ankle, which caused him to miss their Week 13 game against the Jets.
This contest will be important in deciding whether Washington (6-7) or Philadelphia (6-7) has the indoor track for a Wild Card seat. At the start of Week 15, Washington was seeded No. 7 in the NFC. There is a stalemate of teams fighting for that final Wild Card spot, however, and the Eagles may give themselves a better chance by beating their rivals.
It’s a great showdown, but not all NFL fans will be able to see it. Tuesday’s two NFL games begin at 7 p.m. ET, so their Fox coverage will be split.
Here’s what you need to know about the Washington-Philadelphia game, and if you’ll be able to watch it on TV in your area.
