The matchup Sunday afternoon between the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles is one of four this weekend that pits two teams with no shot at the playoffs this season. Still, there is plenty to watch for between two teams that have had very disappointing seasons.
The Redskins started the season looking like a legitimate contender in the NFC East after a 3-1 start but have won just twice in their last 11 games. The Redskins seem to be a quarterback short of being a playoff caliber team. Through 12 starts, Rex Grossman has thrown for just 2,895 yards and 19 interceptions.
The Eagles are a team that just never really put it together until it was too late. The Eagles started the season 4-8 until their recent three-game winning streak. They have also had three different multi-game losing streaks.
Both teams will be playing for two things on Sunday, a higher draft pick and pride. For the Redskins the season couldn't end any sooner, but for the Eagles it's a season that will make fans wonder what if. What if the Eagles had figured things out sooner? Maybe we would be talking about the Eagles' Super Bowl chances rather than what silver lining Eagles fans should take away from Sunday's season finale.
