Schwartz enforces ‘no-hat rule’ as Eagles look to play spoiler vs. Washington


The one opportunity left for the #Philadelphia #Eagles in a disappointing season is the chance to play spoiler.

#Flexed into #Sunday #Night #Football for the final week, the #Eagles are the only NFC #East team eliminated from postseason contention before #Week 17. A win over #Washington, however, can keep the D.C. team from getting into the playoffs — making the winner of the #Cowboys-Giants game the division’s champion.

#Eagles defense coordinator #Jim #Schwartz said not allowing #Washington to celebrate a division win is motivation enough for an otherwise meaningless #Week 17.

“#We’ve got to have a no-hat rule this week,” #Schwartz said, via #PennLive. “#We can’t let opponents put division win hats on at the #Linc. There’s a lot of pride in that, and all our focus has to be [on] accomplishing that this week.”

#Schwartz’s defense has been torched this season, including last week’s 20-point loss to #Dallas, in which the #Philly secondary made #Andy #Dalton look like #Roger #Staubach´╗┐.

#Asked to evaluate his defense in 2020, #Schwartz said it’s one game too early for appraisals. #Those come after their final chance to do something meaningful during the 2020 season, even if that’s simply to rain on someone else’s parade.

“There’s too much at stake,” #Schwartz said. “#It might not be at stake for us as a team with a playoff berth and things like that, but we’ve got a lot of individual things that players still can accomplish. #We’ve got guys that are trying to earn their way in the league, and we have a division opponent that’s going to come and try to celebrate on our field.”
