After which there have been none.
After the Philadelphia Eagles have been defeated 32-21 by the Washington Commanders on Monday night time, no undefeated groups stay within the NFL.
It was the primary defeat of the season for the unusually sloppy Eagles as they slipped to 8-1 on a night once they have been constantly hampered by turnovers.
Quarterback Jalen Hurts threw an interception – in addition to two touchdowns – and the Eagles misplaced three fumbles as Philly’s self-inflicted errors stunted potential scoring drives.
Afterwards, Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni mentioned his crew “performed like crap.”
“I feel once you play the way in which we did tonight, and also you play the way in which we did on all three phases – offense, protection, particular groups, teaching – once you play like that,” Sirianni said, “it does seem to be the whole lot’s going in opposition to you, you create your individual luck, and we performed like crap.”
And all of it got here after such a powerful begin.
The Eagles twice led by a landing in the course of the first half, however – because of Hurts’ interception and the gumption of the Commanders’ offense – Washington held a 20-14 lead at halftime.
Each of the Commanders’ operating backs – Brian Robinson Jr. and Antonio Gibson – had first half touchdowns as a extensively anticipated Eagles victory turned bitter.
The second half was certainly one of frustration for Philly as they tried to claw their manner again into the sport.
Regardless of decreasing Washington’s result in simply two early within the fourth quarter with an 11-yard landing toss to DeVonta Smith, Hurts and the Eagles have been by no means capable of produce constant offense.
Having been supplied loads of alternatives – Washington have been solely capable of muster two subject objectives, two punts and an interception of their 5 second-half drives – the Eagles appeared out of kinds themselves and by no means capitalized.
And, on the ultimate play of the sport needing a miracle landing to rescue a victory from the jaws of defeat, the Washington protection was capable of get better a fumble from Smith after a failed lateral for a landing which put some gloss on a formidable victory for the now 5-5 Commanders.
Huge receiver Terry McLaurin was the star of the night for the Commanders, as he completed with eight receptions for 128 yards.
Though Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke didn’t dazzle within the begin – he completed with 211 passing yards, no touchdowns and an interception – the win continues his run of plucky outcomes as he stands in for starter Carson Wentz.
Though Wentz was dominated out of a begin in opposition to his former crew on account of a finger damage, Heinicke wasn’t certain if his performances in Wentz’s absence have been sufficient to earn himself the beginning job when he does return.
“I don’t know,” Heinicke told the media. “There’s a number of errors I’ve made all through the video games, however once more, it’s one factor the place if my quantity’s referred to as and I’ve to play, let’s go on the market and play, and I’m going to attempt to do the perfect of my talents, so we’ll see what occurs.”
