PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Eagles are missing starting cornerback Byron Maxwell and starting defensive tackle Bennie Logan in their must-win game against the Washington Redskins.

Maxwell has a shoulder injury and Logan has knee and calf injuries. E.J. Biggers starts for Maxwell, and Beau Allen takes Logan's spot.

Special-teams gunner Seyi Ajirotutu also is inactive for Philadelphia. Rookie running back Matt Jones is among Washington's inactives. Jones has a hip injury.

The Redskins (7-7) can clinch the NFC East title with a win. The Eagles (6-8) need a victory to avoid elimination. They would take the division title by winning their last two games.

Here's the list of inactives:

Redskins: QB Robert Griffin III, RB Matt Jones, LB Perry Riley Jr., DE Frank Kearse, G Arie Kouandjio, TE Marcel Jensen, TE Je'Ron Hamm.

Eagles: QB Thad Lewis, WR Seyi Ajirotutu , CB Byron Maxwell, LB Steven Means, OL Barrett Jones, OL Tanner Hawkinson, DT Bennie Logan.
