The Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Football Team are both out of contention to win the NFC East division title, but they are still in the running for a playoff spot in the NFC. It is for the same reason why their upcoming showdown in Week 17 is something that has big implications for both teams’ postseason aspirations. Check out our preview below of this game between the Eagles and the Football Team in Week 17.
Betting Preview for the Philadelphia Eagles vs Washington Football Team Regular Season Week 17 Game on January 2, 2022
Where: FedExField, Landover
When: Sunday, January 2, 2022, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (-3.5)
Regular Season Record: 8-7
The Eagles continue their win streak, as they have now won three games in a row after beating the New York Giants at home in Week 16, 34-10. Jalen Hurts passed for 199 yards and two touchdowns without an interception on 17/29 completions. He can look to get more success in Week 17 against the team they have already before this season. Back in Week 15, the Eagles took down Washington in a 27-17 home victory. It was running back Miles Sanders who also starred for the Eagles, though, as he rushed for 131 yards on 18 carries, while Hurts rushed eight times for 38 yards and two touchdowns. Washington’s morale is perhaps at its lowest this season after getting bludgeoned by the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday, and it’s something the Eagles can further capitalize on.
The Eagles are 5-1-1 against the spread in their last 7 games versus teams in the NFC.
Betting on the Washington Football Team (+3.5)
Regular Season Record: 6-8
There’s nothing good that happened to Washington in Week 16. The Football Team got humiliated by the Dallas Cowboys in a 56-14 road loss Sunday night. A couple of Washington players even had a confrontation on the sidelines. Taylor Heinicke was ineffective, completing just seven of 22 passes for only 122 passing yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. Washington’s defense was banged up, missing several players on that end of the field. The hope for Washington is that it will parade a much healthier lineup in Week 17 against the Eagles. Heinicke was not around in the first meeting with the Eagles due to COVID-19 reasons, but now that he’s back, Washington’s ceiling on offense should be higher this time around.
The under is 4-0 in Washington’s last 4 home games.
The Eagles win, 22-17.
