Eagles have ‘no hat rule’ against playoff-hopeful Washington Football Team


The #Eagles blew their chance to put on NFC #East championship hats in #Week 17, so now their goal is to keep the #Washington #Football #Team from doing just that at #Lincoln #Financial #Field.

#Defensive coordinator #Jim #Schwartz said his team has adopted a “not hat rule” ahead of their matchup with a #Washington #Team hoping to clinch a playoff spot with a win.

“#We have a division opponent that’s going to come and try to celebrate on our field,” #Schwartz told reporters #Tuesday. “#We’ve gotta have a no hat rule.”

The #Eagles are the only team in the NFC #East eliminated from postseason play entering #Week 17. #After #Washington lost to #Carolina on #Sunday, the #Eagles had an opportunity to force a winner-take-all scenario on their home field in the final week of the season.

#Unfortunately for them, they gave up over 500 yards and committed three turnovers to the #Cowboys in a 37-17 loss. #All a win in #Week 17 would do for the #Eagles is worsen their draft position and, as #Schwartz said, prevent a division rival from celebrating on their field.

#Meanwhile, #Washington will look to end their season the same way they started it. #By beating an #Eagles team with an injured offensive line, predictable schemes, suspect play-calling and a roster full of aging players on large contracts.

“#We can’t have opponents put on division [championship] hats on at the #Linc,” #Schwartz said. “There’s a lot of pride in that and all of our focus has to be on accomplishing that this week.”
