The Washington Football Team (6-8) fell to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday night in a 27-17 loss. 13 players from Washington including quarterbacks Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen were on the COVID-19 list. Garrett Gilbert stepped into the starting QB spot just four days after signing with the team from New England’s practice squad. In his second career game, Gilbert completed 20 of 31 passes for 194 yards and zero turnovers. Washington gave up 238 rushing yards to the Eagles and allowed a total of 519 yards on 70 plays. With just three games left in the season against the Cowboys, Eagles, and Giants, Washington is still in the hunt for a playoff spot.
The Dallas Cowboys (10-4) picked up a 21-6 victory against the New York Giants on Sunday. Dak Prescott went 28-of-37 for 217 yards and a touchdown while TE Dalton Schultz caught eight passes for 67 yards and a touchdown and RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 52 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. The Cowboys’ defense forced four takeaways in the win to improve to a 10-4 record and a three-game win streak. The Cowboys can clinch the NFC East with a win or tie against Washington this Sunday. However, Dallas will have the opportunity to take the division before their Sunday night game if the Eagles beat the Giants or if two of the following teams win their games this week: the Minnesota Vikings (vs LA Rams), the LA Chargers (vs Houston Texans), the New England Patriots (vs Buffalo Bills), the Jacksonville Jaguars (vs NY Jets), the Atlanta Falcons (vs Detroit Lions), Las Vegas Raiders (vs Denver Broncos)–that would ultimately give the Cowboys the strength of victory tiebreaker over the Eagles should they both finish 10-7.
