  • Commanders 32, Eagles 21 (game summary)

  • The Eagles had many opportunities, but on Monday night, they were defeated 32-21 by the Washington Commanders due to four turnovers. With an 8-1 record, the Eagles' NFC East lead has shrunk to just one match. The Commanders, who now have a 5-5 record, are still very much in the mix.
  • The Washington offense controlled the game with the rushing attack, maintaining possession for 40:24, and converting 12 third-down opportunities as the Commanders forced four turnovers.
  • Jalen Hurts, the quarterback, completed 17 of 26 passes for 175 yards, two touchdowns, an interception, and a passer rating of 94.2. Hurts scored a rushing touchdown as well in the opening frame. On 12 carries, running back Miles Sanders picked up 54 yards. Quiz Watkins, a wide receiver, had 80 yards receiving but lost a crucial fumble in the fourth quarter on a 50-yard reception.
  • Here is a detailed game summary.
  • Initial Quarter:
  • When punter Tress Way was drilled on fourth down, the defense was about to force a three-and-out when safety Reed Blankenship was flagged for roughing the punter. The Commanders were not aided by it. The very next play saw defensive end Josh Sweat strip quarterback Taylor Heinicke of the ball, and defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu recovered it at the Washington 18-yard line.
  • With three consecutive rushing plays to reach the end zone, the Eagles quickly took advantage of the error. With 12:21 remaining in the first quarter, quarterback Jalen Hurts gained 12 yards on a planned QB keep and added the game's first points by sneaking the ball in from one yard out.
  • The Eagles have the most strip-sacks in the league this season with seven, for those keeping track at home. The Eagles are second in the NFL in points scored off turnovers after the touchdown with 67.
  • Antonio Gibson scored from one yard out on the Commanders' ensuing 13-play, 75-yard touchdown drive. Three third-down opportunities were converted by Washington, the final one being a 26-yard crossing route pass from wide receiver Terry McLaurin to Heinicke. With only five seconds remaining in the first quarter, the score is 7-7.
  • The Eagles scored two touchdowns on two drives. With passes to A.J. Brown, Jack Stoll, and Zach Pascal, Hurts was threading quick darts to move the chains. The two crucial plays of the drive, however, were made by Devonta Smith. With the help of a wide receiver screen, Smith moved the ball to the Washington 33-yard line on a 3rd-and-10 situation. The ball was then moved to the 6-yard line after Smith forced a pass interference penalty on Benjamin St-Justen. With 1:30 remaining in the first quarter, Hurts capped the drive by faking a quarterback draw and completing a pass over the middle to tight end Dallas Goedert, bringing the score to 14-7.
  • A weird chain of circumstances prevented the Commanders from reducing the Eagles' lead before Joey Selye’s 44-yard field goal attempt. Defensive end Brandon Graham and linebacker T.J. Edwards stopped running back Brian Robinson Jr. on 3rd-and-1 from the Eagles' 22. The Commanders appeared to go for it on 4th-and-1, even snapping the ball to wide receiver Curtis Samuel who was straddling the formation, but Washington assessed a delay of game penalty.
  • Defensive end Josh Sweat left the game after suffering an injury during the Commanders' field goal drive.
  • Hurts makes his third season-high interception throw. At the Washington 14-yard line, safety Darrick Forrest intercepted the pass going deep for Brown, who was in double coverage. The ball was perfectly placed in Brown's arms, according to the replay, but Forrest removed it.
  • The Commanders took advantage of Sweat being back on the field for the Eagles with a touchdown drive to take a 17-14 lead. Robinson's 1-yard touchdown run gave Washington 86 yards in 16 plays. Samuel gained one yard after taking a handoff on a jet sweep to help Washington convert three third downs and a fourth down. On third down, the Commanders are 8 of 11, and on fourth down, they are perfect. With 1:39 remaining in the first half, the Eagles will receive the ball back. Washington is ahead by 22:43 to 5:38 in the battle for possession time.
  • On offense, the Eagles soon go three and out. On the first play, Kenneth Gain well mishandled the ball. On the second down, he made a catch near the left sideline for five yards. On the third down, Hurts' pass to Brown was incomplete because the wide receiver slipped.
  • The Eagles will trail in the second half for the first time this year. As the second quarter came to an end, the Commanders added a 58-yard Slye field goal, giving them a 20-14 advantage going into halftime. The Commanders were in a position to score thanks to a 15-yard pass from Heinicke to wide receiver Dyami Brown. The second half will begin with the Eagles having the ball.
  • The second half started with a three-and-out by the offense. A.J. Brown's pass was intercepted on third-and-4 by cornerback Kendall Fuller.
  • Despite Darius Slay's competent coverage, Heinicke went over the top to McLaurin along the right sideline for a 41-yard gain after the Commanders laboriously obtained two first downs and successfully handled two 3rd-and-1 situations. Javon Hargrave's sack of Heinicke on third-and-goal from the 3-yard line allowed the Eagles to force another Slye field goal for the Commanders. With 5:13 left in the quarter, the score is 23-14.
  • DeVonta Smith cut the Commanders' lead to 23-21 with 14:54 left in the game by scoring on an 11-yard touchdown reception on the first play of the fourth quarter. Miles Sanders ran three times for the Eagles to begin the drive on the ground and gain their first first down since the second quarter. Hurts' completion to wide receiver Quez Watkins for a gain of 16 yards over the middle and Goedert's subsequent catch of 15 yards put the Eagles in position to score.
  • When C.J. Gardner-Johnson intercepted a deep throw meant for McLaurin, it gave the Eagles possession of the ball once more. Gardner-Johnson was flagged for unnecessary roughness earlier in the drive after a late hit that went out of bounds, but he more than made up for it. With 12:24 remaining in the contest, the Eagles take the ball at their own 7-yard line. On each of their previous five drives, the Commanders had scored.
  • Dallas Goedert fumbled, giving the ball back to the Commanders. Jamin Davis, a linebacker, ought to have received a facemask penalty. The defensive tackle John Ridgeway punched the ball out as Goedert was falling to the ground. At the Eagles' 34-yard line, Davis recovered the fumble after the penalty was missed.
  • Following the error, Slye added a 55-yard field goal to increase the Commanders' lead to 26-21 with 7:33 left to play.
  • Another big play, this time by Quez Watkins, appeared to put the Eagles in scoring position. He gained 51 yards on a deep post, went down, got up, and St-Juste took the ball away from him. With his recovery and return, Forrest gained 12 yards. The Eagles have three tonight, including two in the fourth quarter, after only three in the first eight games.
  • With 3:26 left, the Eagles had a chance, but they failed to convert after Montez Sweat sacked Hurts on third down. The ball was thrown away by the Eagles. There are 1:54 left in the game after using all three timeouts. At its own 47, Washington will assume control.
  • Heinicke took a knee on third down because he was unable to find an open receiver. To prolong the drive and end the game, Brandon Graham, who was pursuing him, ran him over and was penalized for unnecessary roughness.
  • After the Eagles attempted to keep the ball alive on a last-second desperate play, the game was decided by Casey Toohill of the Washington defensive end recovering a fumble for a touchdown.
