In Week Twelve, the Eagles had a matchup with a familiar foe. They would play the Redskins, a few days after Thanksgiving, looking for their second win against the divisional rival.

After back to back lackluster performances, the Eagles would look to get back on track against the Bears, a team who was up and down throughout the season.
