The Browns and the Raiders aren’t the only teams who will be playing a rescheduled game in Week 15.

According to multiple reports, the game between Washington and the Eagles will be moving as well. The game was set for 1 p.m. ET on Sunday and will now get underway at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday night.

In both cases, the games are moving because of ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks. The Browns and Washington have both put at least 20 players on their COVID-19 reserve lists over the last week or so.

Under the revised protocols put in place by the league this week, it will be easier for asymptomatic and vaccinated players to test their way off the COVID-19 list but it’s not guaranteed that Washington will be in considerably stronger shape by Tuesday.

The delay probably won’t be met with too many smiles by the Eagles, who will now have to play the Giants on a short week in Week 16, but it does give quarterback Jalen Hurts a bit more time for his ankle to heal before gameday.

UPDATE 3:17 p.m. ET: The NFL confirmed the new schedule and announced that this game and the Seahawks-Rams game that is also moving to Tuesday will be available on FOX and Sunday Ticket.

  1. The vaccines don’t work. The NFL players are proving it to everyone, yet we are supposed to close our eyes and pretend everything is fine.

  2. This is a bs decision. The Eagles are being penalized because like everything else Washington does the messed up on following the covid protocols. This game should have been a forfeit by Washington if they aren’t able to play

  3. The eagles suck anyway… so what’s difference does it make if they lose on Sunday or tuesday

  4. NFL….Greed wins out every time. No way were they going to have teams forfeit and not get the revenue from the games. c’mon man

  5. I have a great idea why don’t we let these world class athletes with no symptoms just playing the damn football game. That is the problem that we’re being lied to that they’re too sick to play which is total BS

  6. I would move next weeks Browns and WFT games to Thursday a couple days after they play as punishment if the league isn’t keeping its iron clad rule of no altering the schedule no matter what.

  7. I just lost what little respect I had for Roger Goodell. Making the Raiders, Eagles, and Seahawks pay for the sins of the Browns, WFT, and Rams is ridiculous.

  8. Seems like a safety issue to have these guys playing with people off the street. Good move by the NFL.

  9. They should also move the Cowboys vs Giants game to Tuesday. This way when the Giants play Philly and the Cowboys play the WFT next week there will be no advantage for either team as they will all have 5 days rest.

  10. Yes the Eagles will need to play against a team with 20 guys currently in COVID protocol that is playing their 3rd straight game against a team either coming off a bye or having 11 days rest and the Eagles must do this while the game is moved 2 whole days

    How will they ever overcome the adversity

  11. I don’t understand why people on here are calling for teams to forfeit. Why? The NFL is 94% vaccinated and yet players are still testing positive.HOW IS IT THEIR FAULT?
    STOP THE WOKENESS PEOPLE!

    The rub is the short week before playing the Giants. But thanks for playing, Big Brain.

  13. Over 20 of Washington’s players are out with Covid so it’s not like postponing this game by two days will allow them to play. It screws the Eagles as well as they now will have a short week to prepare for week 16 vs the NYG, a 1pm game. Washington plays Dallas next Sunday but at 8:30pm. They should move the Cowboys/NYG game to Tuesday as well.

  14. Admit that a lot of the complaints about moving the Eagles game to Tuesday is unfair is because Eagles fans were looking forward to the team stomping a bunch of WFT players that were just pulled off the street. But, by accommodating the poor handling of COVID protocols by WFT, the NFL just said nevermind…I expect to see a bunch of messages from the NFL about maintaining the integrity of the game, while waiving their own rules.
