Week 16 of the NFL regular season unveils a nice twist as we will enjoy football action this coming Saturday taking place in the West Coast as Washington Redskins (3-11) and San Francisco (7-7) host some of the top games for this weekend.
Washington´s dismal record of six consecutive losses has ranked the team in fourth place in the NFC East conference while their opponents, the Eagles are in second position and enjoy a pretty good overall record. Last Monday at a press conference, head coach Jay Gruden said the plan is for Robert Griffin III to start at quarterback this Saturday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Redskins (3-11) have nothing to play for the final two weeks of the season except to try to play spoiler to division rivals Cowboys and Eagles. But the Eagles (9-5) have plenty to play for down the stretch, including the NFC East title or at least a Wild Card spot.
The battle forged in the trenches during this Saturday’s game between the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles could be the deciding factor in a game that the Redskins hope will result a serious blow to the Eagles’ playoff chances.
The Eagles’ pass-rush is potent, recording 47 sacks this season – second-most in the NFL this season behind just the Buffalo Bills. Leading the way for Philadelphia’s aggressive defense is outside linebacker Connor Barwin. Now in his second season with the Eagles, Barwin has already set a career-high in sacks with 14.5. source: redskins.com

In addition, the second Saturday game will be the clash between San Diego Chargers @ SF 49ers. San Diego Chargers already face a difficult task in trying to get back into playoff position with just two weeks left.
Making it even more challenging is an expanding list of injured players. The Chargers likely won’t have leading receiver Keenan Allen available and running back Ryan Mathews’ status is unclear for Saturday night’s visit to the eliminated San Francisco 49ers. San Diego (8-6) was in control of the AFC’s final playoff spot even after a 23-14 loss to New England on Dec. 7, but lost that distinction with a 22-10 defeat to another one of the conference’s top teams, Denver, on Sunday.
The 49ers have also dealt with the uncertainty of coach Jim Harbaugh’s future. Harbaugh, who led the team to a Super Bowl two seasons ago and two other NFC championships games in his tenure, has one season left on a five-year contract. The betting odds favorite the host San Francisco at -1 41.5u
