How to watch the Chiefs-Eagles AFC wild-card game live from FedEx Field
The Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles will square off in the first wild-game game of the 2017 NFL season.
The Redskins are hosting the Eagles in Philadelphia on Sunday at FedEx Field.
The Eagles are playing the Indianapolis Colts in the opening game of their preseason at the Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Eagles, who play the Texans on Thursday, won the NFC East last season and are coming off a 17-6 season.
But they are playing a division rival and the Eagles are one of the worst teams in the league.
They were the NFL’s worst in terms of DVOA and total offense for the first half of the season, averaging only 30.6 points per game.
Their defense has been one of its worst teams since the start of last season.
The Redskins are a strong team.
They have the league’s fifth-best offense, with a DVOA of 27.8 percent, and a defensive DVOA that’s 17.3 percent.
The defense is ranked 14th in total defense, while the offense ranks 20th.
The first half is a must for both teams.
The Chargers, with the league-best defense, are expected to be one of their better teams.
But the Chargers defense is expected to play at a high level, and it could be a factor against the Eagles.
The first quarter could be very important for the Eagles defense because it could give the Redskins the edge in the second half.
The second quarter could also help the Redskins as they try to close the gap against the Colts.
The Colts were the best defensive team in the NFL last season at 26.4 points per contest.
But their offensive game is still young.
They’re projected to finish with the fifth-highest offense in the division, averaging 32.6 yards per game and 30.5 points per outing.
The Jaguars rank 15th in yards per play and 29th in points per play, but they rank 18th in defensive DVOPA, giving them a higher defensive DVO.
The teams have met only once in the regular season, with Seattle winning on a last-second field goal in Week 3.
But it’s the first meeting between the Redskins and Eagles.
There’s been no previous meeting between these teams since 2012.
The last meeting between Washington and Philadelphia was in 2013.
It was a 27-21 victory.
Last season’s matchup between the Eagles and Redskins was also a close one, with Washington beating the Redskins 26-23 in overtime in Philadelphia.
The teams combined for 28 interceptions and four sacks.
Washington was also the NFL leader in sacks, forcing 27 turnovers.
