Washington’s Uphill Week-16 Battle 

Aside from two consecutive losses, the Washington squad is currently facing additional setbacks that might take a toll in this Sunday’s game against Dallas. However, after a Week-15 in which a total of 23 players were on the sidelines due to COVID-19 protocols, the team is now on a much clearer path. 

Both backup QB Kyle Allen and linebacker Milo Eifler will become available for Washington to consider for their upcoming Sunday game. Safety Deshazor Everett is also expected to play this Sunday despite being involved in a fatal car accident last Thursday night in which one driver was killed. 

Everything is now on the line for coach Ron Rivera. Having all his players available will be crucial, especially when facing a team that already handed them a defeat two weeks ago. 

For Washington, the aim is set for the last NFC playoff spot. To get there, the squad has no option but to continue winning as they lag behind.
