The Eagles lost on Sunday night, and thats something that you’ve grown accustomed to if you’re an Eagles fan. But this particular loss had some ramifications for other teams, mainly the Washington Football Team and the New York Giants. And honestly, the fact that the Giants actually thought they had a chance to make the playoffs is adorable. The Eagles sat half their team, and when the game was actually close Doug Pederson sat Jalen Hurts in favor of Nate Sudfeld trying to hand Washington the division.
The game really shouldn’t have been as close as it was, but that kind of describes the division; No one wanted it. It appeared Doug Pederson threw the game, realizing “hey! The 6th pick is better than the 9th pick!” Crazy thought….but this really bothered the Giants, among others. So enjoy everyone hating the Eagles.

You play the game to win point blank period JJ Watt said it best the other day outside of how it effects us this just disrespectful to the game— Darius Slayton (@Young_Slay2) January 4, 2021
Heres a great one that makes it sound SUPER serious…
Tanking is a form of advertising fraud--the seller (NFL and Eagles) markets itself as selling a product (game against Washington) that reflects fair play & genuine competition when in reality, it seems, the seller wasn't trying to win. Doesn't mean a lawsuit, but hurts NFL brand.— Michael McCann (@McCannSportsLaw) January 4, 2021
This is the most negative barrage of comments I have received about a game’s lack of integrity and that’s not even counting Giants-related bias.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) January 4, 2021
Consensus from those in NFL and who have been associated with it: Disgrace.
That’s not the fault of the Washington Football Team.
This is why we don’t like the Eagles. https://t.co/Efe7kEPtES— Eli Manning (@EliManning) January 4, 2021
