Carson Wentz injury update: QB out for season with torn ACL; Eagles turn to Nick Foles
You’re up, Nick Foles.
Mike Tirico, Cris Collinsworth and Heather Cox (field reporter) will call the Cowboys-Redskins game for NBC on Thursday night in Dallas. At 6 p.m. ET on NFL Network, “TNF GameDay” previews the game from outside AT&T Stadium, with host Rich Eisen and analysts Marshall Faulk, Michael Irvin and Steve Smith Sr. At 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC, NFL Network and Amazon Prime Video, “Football Night in Dallas” airs from inside AT&T Stadium with host Liam McHugh and analysts Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison providing the final say leading up to kickoff between Cowboys and Redskins.
That person, however, didn’t want to go on the record or talk to me at all, preferring to stay behind the scenes and remain anonymous. So I don’t know how big the team is, who is doing what, or the extent to which Brady himself is or isn’t involved with the content. I also don’t know if that person is still in charge, but I would assume so, given how loyal Brady is.
The Eagles cornerback told reporters Thursday he would not raise his fist during the playing of the “Star-Spangled Banner” prior to Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.
A 3-3 and then 10-10 stalemate the majority of the game was broken up late in the fourth on a 14-yard Josh Doctson touchdown reception with just under four minutes remaining. After a four-and-out by the Giants, Washington added another field goal to bring their victory to a 20-10 margin.
Despite the mounting injuries, Washington is entering a friendly stretch in their playoffs after facing six division leaders already this season. Washington faces the slumping Cowboys, Cardinals, Broncos and Giants again. Assuming they fall in a cross-country matchup with the red-hot Chargers, there is a great chance the Redskins are 9-7 at the end of the year and are in firm contention for the final wild-card spot.
