The Philadelphia Eagles’ first loss of the season comes at the hands of the Washington Commanders, just as we all expected. 

Despite being 11-point underdogs, the Commanders pulled off an 11-point win of their own over the Eagles, the NFL’s final undefeated team. With the win, the Commanders get back to .500 with a 5-5 record, while the Eagles fall to 8-1.

Offensive Spotlight: Despite facing one of the league’s best cornerbacks in Darius Slay, Terry McLaurin had a field day against the Eagles. The fourth-year receiver caught eight of his 11 targets for 128 yards. He averaged a staggering 3.76 yards per route run, his highest mark all season.

Defensive Spotlight: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson has continued to look like an excellent addition for the Eagles defense. The former Saint finished with a 91.8 grade on first review, which would be the highest of his career. He had an interception and a forced incompletion on 32 coverage snaps. His six interceptions this season now lead the NFL.

Rookie Spotlight: Brian Robinson Jr. continues to establish himself as the Commanders' top running back. On 26 attempts, the third-rounder ran for 87 yards and a touchdown, with 62 yards coming after contact. His 78.6 grade on first review would be the highest of his young career by over eight points.

Offensive Line Spotlight: The Eagles offensive line held up pretty well in the loss, as it didn’t allow a sack or hit on 28 pass-blocking snaps, the first time it accomplished that since Week 1 against the Detroit Lions

Right tackle Lane Johnson was particularly impressive, as he didn’t allow a single pressure on 28 pass-blocking snaps. He’s now only allowed a 4% pressure rate all season, the fourth-lowest among offensive tackles.
