The Washington Football Team has won four games in a row to put them in the 6th (of 7) playoff spots in the NFC. A win today against the rival Dallas Cowboys would put them within a game of the division, but they’ll have to give it their best without their top 4 defensive ends.
Chase Young suffered a season ending injury earlier this year and Montez Sweat was dealing with a broken jaw that landed him on injured reserve. There was hope he’d be available to play prior to being placed on the Covid-19 list earlier this week.
James Smith-Williams and Casey Toohill have filled in admirably, but both players have since been placed on the Covid-19 list; leaving them unable to play in today’s big game against the Cowboys.
This leaves Daniel Wise, Bunmi Rotimi, Shaka Toney, and William Bradley-King as the only defensive ends available for the Football Team.
The game will be played at Fed Ex Field in Landover at 1pm today and can be watched on Fox 5.
