The Eagles’ Week 15 match against Washington has a date and time now.
When the NFL’s schedule was announced in April, the Eagles’ home game against Washington was not given a date. It was only announced as TBA for Saturday or Sunday, December 18 or 19.
The verdict is in and… kickoff will be 1pm ET on Sunday, December 19. The Eagles will face Washington at FedEx Field two weeks later.
The 1 p.m. timed means the Eagles will end the season with seven straight games by 1 p.m. Sunday. Five of their first 10 games are on Thursday or Monday, and the road games in Las Vegas and Denver and the home game against the Chargers are late afternoon games.
Most coaches prefer 1:00 p.m. Sunday make-up games because it creates a consistent schedule throughout the week with no adjustments to later matches or Thursday or Monday games. , so seven 1pm games in a row is a great boon for Nick Sirianni as the Eagles chase a berth playoff in the extended run.
For the record, the Eagles are 251-217-9 (0.535) in franchise history in early games – 1 p.m. EST or noon EST.
They are 74-82 (.474) in late afternoon games and 75-59 in prime time games (starting 7pm EST and up), a win rate of 0.560.
