Taylor Heinicke will start at quarterback on Sunday night against the Eagles if Alex Smith remains sidelined by his calf injury, WFT coach Ron Rivera says.
Washington will win the NFC East title if it defeats Philadelphia. If it loses, the winner of the Dallas Cowboys-New York Giants game earlier on Sunday will be the division champion.
Heinicke replaced Dwayne Haskins Jr. in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 20-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers and completed 12 of 19 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown.
