Washington’s game vs. the Philadelphia Eagles could be impacted by Hurricane Joaquin.

There’s a chance Hurricane Joaquin will wreak havoc on the East coast this weekend, and even though the Jets are in London and the Giants are in Buffalo, the Eagles game in Washington could be affected.

The NFL told the News Thursday nothing has been decided, but they are “closely monitoring the forecast and speaking to the clubs.”

Eagles coach coach Chip Kelly told the media on Thursday, as far as he knows, the game is still Sunday in D.C.

“We’re preparing to play Sunday,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly told the media Thursday. “Nothing has been told to us about moving the game. If they adjust the schedule, we’ll adjust.”
