Dave Weinberg’s Commanders-Eagles 2-minute drill
A quick back at the Philadelphia Eagles first loss of the season to the Washington Commanders.
Eagles’ best number: 3 (Jalen Hurts’ total touchdowns)
Eagles’ worst number: 4 (Eagles turnovers)
View from my living room:
Washington had the second-most impressive win Monday night. The Movin’ On Up Trivia team earned a victory at Nauti Spirits in Lower Township about an hour before kickoff.
- Commanders place-kicker Joey Slye (4-for-4 field goals, including two over 50 yards)
- Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin (8 catches for 128 yards)
- Eagles safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson (grabbed his league-high 6th interception)
Eagles’ best play
Quarterback Jalen Hurts charged toward the line of scrimmage, then stopped suddenly and threw a “pop” pass over the middle to wide receiver DeVonta Smith for a 6-yard touchdown.
Eagles’ worst play
Commanders quarterback Taylor Heinicke dropped to one knee near the end of the fourth quarter. Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham made contact while he was down, resulting in a personal foul penalty that gave Washington another first down and allowed it to essentially run out the clock.
The Eagles appeared ready to register a comeback win when Hurts found wide receiver Quez Watkins deep over the middle in the fourth quarter. Watkins went down without being hit, but fumbled after he got up and tried to run, thus giving the ball back to the Commanders.
Did you notice?
The Eagles trailed at halftime for the first time this season. … Wide receiver A.J. Brown had just one catch for 7 yards. … Guard Landon Dickerson had his worst game of the season. … The officials made several questionable calls and missed several others, including a blatant facemask against Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert. … Washington ran 81 offensive plays to Philly’s 47 and had a 40:24 to 19:46 edge in time of possession. … Eagles are now tied with Minnesota for the best record in the NFL.
