.@Michele_Tafoya asked players were to describe how @WashingtonNFL Coach Ron Rivera carried himself as he battled cancer.— Sunday Night Football (@SNFonNBC) January 4, 2021
Some words that were used were inspirational, resilient and "a dude". pic.twitter.com/LYoHHM3vl2
So the Eagles all good on their evaluation of Nate Sudfeld now?— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 4, 2021
The proof that tanking doesn't really exist is the NFL is just how stunning it is to see it actually happen in real time.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) January 4, 2021
Some initial thoughts...— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 4, 2021
1) A playoff game will be played at FedEx for the 4th time. That's cool.
2) Chase Young was the best player on the field tonight.
3) Washington still has a QB problem.
2) Doug Pederson benching Hurts was a joke.
3) The NFL should be livid w/ Philly.
Chase Young had a sack, a forced fumble, and 7 QB pressures tonight. He was tremendous in tonight's clincher. That shouldn't be lost among the awkwardness of that game. #WashingtonFootball— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 4, 2021
Regardless of how they got there or did it, for #washingtonFootball to win the division is an accomplishment. After an ugly offseason that started many changes, Ron Rivera dealing with cancer, Alex Smith’s return, and also dealing with COVID, they should be proud of the feat.— Lake Lewis Jr (@LakeLewis) January 4, 2021
Back in Week 4 when Ron Rivera talked about his 1-3 team gunning for the division, it sounded like crazy talk. Now, here they are, 7-9, NFC East champs and headed for the playoffs. (WFT's first berth since 2015).— Mike Jones (@ByMikeJones) January 4, 2021

The 7-9 Washington Football Team won the NFC East@WashingtonNFL is the 3rd team in NFL history (excl. strike seasons) to reach the playoffs with a sub-.500 record -- and both of the other two (2010 SEA, & Ron Rivera's 2014 CAR) won a playoff game that season— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) January 4, 2021
I don't even know what to say on the show tomorrow. I'm not sure I've been this conflicted before. This will mark Washington's 4th division title since 1991 and they're too rare to scoff at. Playoff appearances are too infrequent.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 4, 2021
But that feels gross. 'Gotta go shower.
Congrats to @WashingtonNFL which deserves the spotlight, but the way this has unfolded is a total bummer of a season end and runs counter to everything that Game 256 should be about.— Rich Eisen (@richeisen) January 4, 2021

From Washington’s point of view, that was a horrible performance in a game they should have won comfortably.— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) January 4, 2021
That said, Alex Smith constantly preaches it doesn’t matter how you get there, just have to “punch your ticket to the dance”. Washington did just enough
They won. enjoy it. Don't worry about style points. Don't worry about whatever the Eagles did or didn't do. ... Was not pretty; still 7-9 with an NFC East crown. Beats losing to the Giants in 2016 on the final day, I'm sure. ...— John Keim (@john_keim) January 4, 2021
JDR's 'D' doesn't give up PTS in the 2nd half. Another shutout after intermission. Here are the point totals WSH allowed over the last 11 games:— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 4, 2021
Yielded 4.4 2nd-half points per game over 11 games.
When asked how much the game changed when the Eagles went from Hurts to Sudfeld, Washington's Sweat said, "No comment." He later says "I feel like we would've finished the job against either one."— Mike Jones (@ByMikeJones) January 4, 2021
Chase Young shrugs when asked about Nate Sudfeld coming in: "Time to eat on 7."— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) January 4, 2021

More Moses on the bond: "We don't get down on each other when one unit isn't playing as well. Everytime [Young] comes off the field and we come up short he looks me in the eye and says, 'We got you. We'll get it back.' "— John Keim (@john_keim) January 4, 2021

Chase Young has registered at least one full sack in seven games this season, most by a rookie in franchise history.— John Keim (@john_keim) January 4, 2021
Antonio Gibson played in just 14 games in his rookie season, but he amassed 1,042 total yards while rushing for 11 TD's. Excellent start to his career.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 4, 2021
It looks like Washington hit a homer with the 66th pick in the 2020 #NFLDraft.
Logan Thomas had a monster first season with #WashingtonFootball.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 4, 2021
He caught 72 passes for 670 yards and 6 TD's. He had caught 28 passes for 250 yards and 1 TD in his career before this season. Washington could not have been more right about him.

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.
I mean I totally get it but dude - Giants. Don't be 6-10. That's what I'd do.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) January 4, 2021
Ron Rivera walked into a shit show, had to deal with health problems, an owner like Dan Snyder, constant distractions, a depleted roster and was forced to play 4 different QBs and won 7 games.— Giants Daily (@NYGDaily) January 4, 2021
How many years are we going to give Dave Gettleman to build a 7-9 team?
HE MUST GO.
A disgraceful end to a dreadful #Eagles season. Many will applaud the tank and three spots in the draft, but it spoke volumes about the current culture of the organization.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) January 4, 2021
FWIW Sudfeld has been with the Eagles since 2017. He was tendered by them in 2019 and came back on a lower priced deal in 2020. Took a last minute pay cut to remain on the team. Nothing to evaluate. Nothing to gain. Hes a FA again. No legit reason to have done this at all.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) January 4, 2021

To be fair to the Eagles, Washington lost four straight to end the season last year and wound up with the guy Philly has no answer for as a result of it. So this is probably the right move.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 4, 2021

Doug Pederson says the decision to play Nate Sudfeld was his. “I was coaching to win.” Says Sudfeld has been here with the #Eagles a few years and deserved snaps.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) January 4, 2021
"Yes, I was coaching to win."— NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) January 4, 2021
Doug Pederson explains why he took Jalen Hurts out of the game vs. Washington: pic.twitter.com/chB3dxTRE3
The NFL’s longstanding position has been that it’s solely the club’s decision regarding who to play, for now long, etc. So while the circumstances tonight are unique, the #Eagles aren’t the first team to play backups in Week 17, and the league historically hasn’t gotten involved.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 4, 2021

Jay Glazer reported tonight that Evans hyperextended the knee and tests showed no ligament damage, that the team is hopeful he could play Saturday. I was told it's probably too early to know anything either way. https://t.co/lWaqyoyxjg— Greg Auman (@gregauman) January 4, 2021
