The Philadelphia Eagles deciding to put in Nate Sudfeld at quarterback on Sunday has led to accusations of tanking (although, with nothing to play for but draft position, could you blame Doug Pederson if that was the case?).

Thanks in part to that decision, Washington Football Team won the Week 17 game on Sunday night and will head to the playoffs instead of the New York Giants — whose players were angry on social media watching the whole thing unfold — and of course that means the New York tabloids had to come up with some good covers. But there was also a terrific headline in Washington.

Let’s start there with the Post’s sports cover:

Nice. Over to the New York Post:

Over to the New York Daily News:

I like the use of the Wayne Gallman fumble there.
