Three stars
1. Redskins defensive end Ryan Kerrigan (2 sacks, fumble recovery)
2. Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (8 catches, 101 yards, 1 TD)
3. Redskins defensive end Chase Young (1.5 sacks in NFL debut)

Turning point
The Eagles led 17-0 in the first half and were cruising. Carson Wentz's first of two interceptions near the end of the half led to Washington's first touchdown and swung the momentum.

Eagles’ best play
Wentz hit rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor for a 55-yard gain in the first quarter. Reagor made a nice over-the-shoulder catch for his first NFL reception.

Eagles' worst play
Their chances of a comeback ended when tight end Zach Ertz dropped a pass on fourth-and-3 to turn the ball over to Washington on downs.

Did you notice?
Eagles stayed in the locker room for the national anthem. ... Lane Johnson didn't play. Rookie Jack Driscoll started at right tackle and Nate Herbig was the right guard. ... Wide receiver DeSean Jackson sat out a good chunk of the first half and was basically a non-factor. ... Wentz was under siege throughout against Washington's pass rush. ... Josh Sweat earned the Eagles' first sack of the season. ... Jordan Mailata replaced Driscoll at right tackle in the fourth quarter. It was his NFL debut.

Parting shots
Eagles coach Doug Pederson on allowing eight sacks: "Can't happen."

Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins on his halftime speech: "Pretty much the moral of the speech was, 'We're home. We're the home team. This is our house.'"
