Eagles Surprising Loss to Commanders

Logan Rustici, Author

The Eagle’s loss to the Commanders shock Eagle’s fans and turns the Eagles to 8-1. After so many days of winning 302 to be exact, the Eagles are shocked at home on Monday Night Football.

The fans and the Eagles do have things to blame on the referees. In the fourth quarter, Eagle’s tight end Dallas Goedert caught a pass from star quarterback Jalen Hurts and proceeded to cough up the ball. However, the referees missed an obvious facemask penalty on Washington before the fumble that would have negated the turnover. Nonetheless, the Commanders kicked a field goal on the ensuing drive for a 26-21 lead. Also with two minutes left on third down Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke gave himself up behind the line of scrimmage, and Philadelphia linebacker Brandon Graham made enough contact with him that drew an unnecessary roughness penalty and effectively sealed the victory for the Commanders (32-21).

Well as the turnovers for the Eagles. Late in the Jalen Hurts found Quez Watkins on a 51-yard reception trailing 26-21. Watkins hit the ground, popped up, and took off running, only to fumble the ball and give Washington possession. It was a stupid fumble and led the Eagles to lose. The commanders move to 5-5 and the Eagles stay at the top of the NFC east. While the Eagles still lost, they stay at the top. Fly Eagles fly!
