The surge in COVID-19 cases around the NFL has caused a major shakeup to the Week 15 schedule. The league decided on Friday to postpone three games, including the Philadelphia Eagles' tilt against the Washington Football Team, which has been moved from Sunday to Tuesday, Dec. 21.

Several Eagles players aren't happy with the decision.

Darius Slay highlighted the fact that Philadelphia is now forced to play on a short week due to Washington's COVID issues. The Eagles will have only a four-day rest and/or prep period before playing again next Sunday, Dec. 26.

Rodney McLeod echoed Slay's sentiments, finding an issue that WFT's problem has now caused additional headaches for the Eagles. Flexter Cox co-signed his fellow team captain as well.

Alex Singleton expressed his digust with a simple "LOL" after the league's decision.

At 6-7, a win over Washington would give the Eagles' playoff chances a boost down the stretch. Now WFT gets additional time to get key players back before these teams square off on Tuesday.
