Eagles-Redskins: Start time, how to watch and stream

Sunday's Redskins game is a must-win for the Eagles. Or is it? Man, the NFC East is bad.

The Eagles will take on the Redskins in Washington Sunday afternoon with their playoff hopes in better shape than their receiving corps.

According to the New York Times, the Eagles still have a 43% chance to make the playoffs, and could still win the NFC East, even if they lose to the Redskins. They could also end up winning the division by defeating Washington and losing to the Dallas Cowboys next week at the Linc, but that would obviously require some help.

Considering the stakes, the NFL is beaming Eagles-Redskins to nearly every television in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Arkansas, just to make sure Dallas fans can root against the Birds. The Cowboys take on the Rams in Fox’s national game at 4:25 p.m.

Calling their second Eagles game of the season will be Thom Brennaman and former Lions linebacker Chris Spielman. The duo called the Birds’ Week 3 loss to the Lions, which was most memorable for showing an irate Eagles fan who happened to be Eric Furda, the University of Pennsylvania’s dean of admissions since 2008.

While Brennaman is always solid and Spielman did a decent job last time around (both came to the defense of angry Eagles fans), viewers always have the option of muting their televisions and tuning into WIP-FM to hear longtime announcers Merrill Reese and Mike Quick call the game. You might even be treated to one or two digs directed at FedEx Field’s broadcast booth, which Reese called deplorable a few years back.

“We are in the corner of the end zone down there and [positioned] low,” Reese said during a 2010 interview. “So when the ball’s past the 50 [yard line], you cannot be sure if it has gone 5 yards or 15.”

Two-minute drill

DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, and Nelson Agholor were supposed to be the Eagles’ greatest collection of receivers. What went wrong? ... Carson Wentz and his wife, Maddie Oberg, are having a girl. ... Running back Boston Scott is technically obese, not that it matters. ... Wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside goes from rookie to elder statesman. ... Turns out the Eagles’ season-opener against Washington told us a lot about how the Birds’ season would play out. ... Brian Westbrook likes what he is seeing from young running backs Miles Sanders and Boston Scott.
