NFL senior vice president of communications Greg Aiello toldThe Washington Post the league was “monitoring the forecast and having dialogue with both teams.”
Sunday’s game between the NFC East rivals is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET at the Redskins’ home in Landover, Md. Weather forecasts remain undetermined but indicate a high possibility of wind and steady rain throughout the afternoon and night.
Aiello did not confirm to the Post what the possible contingencies might entail. CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora reported one option could involve postponing Sunday’s game until Nov. 1, as both teams have a Week 8 bye.
Both the Eagles and Redskins enter the weekend 1–2. The two split last year’s regular-season series; the Eagles won the Week 3 game in Philadelphia 37–34, while the Redskins won the Week 16 game in Washington 27–24.
