Eagles vs. Washington coverage map: Why some NFL fans can’t watch Tuesday football game on TV


The Eagles are hosting Washington in Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season. They were originally supposed to square off on Sunday afternoon. However, things changed as a result of a COVID outbreak in the Washington organization.

Washington had 23 players on the COVID list at one point during the weekend, and to slow the spread of the virus, the NFL elected to move their game against the Eagles to Tuesday. That will give Washington more time to get some of those players back from the COVID list while the Eagles will get extra time to rest Jalen Hurts’ ankle, which caused him to miss their Week 13 game against the Jets.

This contest will be an important one to decide whether Washington (6-7) or Philadelphia (6-7) has the inside track to a Wild Card spot. Entering Week 15, Washington occupied the No. 7 seed in the NFC. There is a logjam of teams battling for that final Wild Card spot though, and the Eagles can give themselves a better chance at it by beating their rivals.

This is a good-looking matchup, but not all NFL fans will be able to see it. Both of the Tuesday NFL games are starting at 7 p.m. ET, so Fox’s coverage of them will be split.

Here’s what to know about the Washington-Philadelphia game and whether you will be able to watch it on TV in your region.

RED: Washington at Eagles

BLUE: Seahawks at Rams

If you’re in the red region, you’ll be able to see the Washington-Philadelphia game on Tuesday night. However, if you’re in the blue region, you won’t be able to see it. Instead, you’ll see the Seahawks-Rams game.

These games were both originally part of the Sunday afternoon slate on Fox, so the NFL is having them broadcast at the same time to avoid giving Fox two stand-alone, prime-time matchups. You can still have your choice of games if you are a DirecTV subscriber, as each will be available as part of the NFL Sunday Ticket package.
