For the second time this season, the Redskins have been flexed. Whether the NFL has their eye on the Eagles or Redskins is the question.
The game at FedEx against the Eagles on Sunday, Dec. 21 — originally scheduled for 1 p.m. — has been bumped up to the 4:15 p.m. spot on Fox. Both teams, as of right now, remain eligible for the postseason, and it should be a tough division game, so it makes sense from that standpoint.
Also getting bumped that day:
- The Panthers-Giants game will now be played on NBC at 8:15 p.m.
- The Falcons-Vikings game also will get the 4:15 p.m. treatment on Fox.
