Week 7 of the NFL season concludes with an NFC showdown between the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.
It’s the second and final meeting for these two squads this season. The two met in Washington to kick off the 2017 campaign, with Philadelphia dominating the contest 30-17.
Washington bounced back from that season opening loss and is 3-2 entering Monday night play — good for second place in the division. They’ve played consistent football on offense, and have been just good enough on defense to scratch out three wins. But if they are to turn the tables on Philadelphia, they will likely have to top 30 points to keep up with the Eagles’ stellar unit.
Philadelphia’s lone 2017 setback came against Kansas City in Week 2. Since then, the Eagles have reeled off four straight to take command of the NFC East. Second-year quarterback Carson Wentz has the Eagle offense firing on all cylinders. And with the Cowboys and Falcons struggling and Aaron Rodgers going down to injury for Green Bay, the Eagles, suddenly, look like a very serious Super Bowl threat.
Kickoff for is set for 8:30 p.m. ET. Sean McDonough and Jon Gruden have the call. You can catch the action live on ESPN, or stream it online free with a cable subscription via WatchESPN on your pc, phone, or tablet. WatchESPN can be downloaded from Apple’s iTunes Store, and the Google Play Store.
