Eagles vs. Commanders: No undefeated groups left in NFL in 2022, as Philadelphia loses to Washington, 32-21

After which there have been none.

After the Philadelphia Eagles have been defeated 32-21 by the Washington Commanders on Monday evening, 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 repeatedly 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 staff “played like crap.”

“I think when you play the way we did tonight, and you play the way we did on all three phases – offense, defense, special teams, coaching – when you play like that,” Sirianni mentioned, “it does seem like everything’s going against you, you create your own luck, and we played like crap.”

And all of it got here after such a robust begin.

The Eagles twice led by a landing in the course of the first half, however – due to 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 broadly anticipated Eagles victory turned bitter.

The second half was one in all frustration for Philly as they tried to claw their means 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 in a position to produce constant offense.

Having been offered loads of alternatives – Washington have been solely in a position to muster two subject targets, two punts and an interception of their 5 second-half drives – the Eagles appeared out of types 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 in a position to get better a fumble from Smith after a failed lateral for a landing which put some gloss on a powerful victory for the now 5-5 Commanders.

Broad receiver Terry McLaurin was the star of the night for the Commanders, as he completed with eight receptions for 128 yards.

Heinicke celebrates a touchdown against the Eagles.

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 staff attributable to a finger damage, Heinicke wasn’t positive 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 informed the media. “There’s a lot of mistakes I’ve made throughout the games, but again, it’s one thing where if my number’s called and I have to play, let’s go out there and play, and I’m going to try to do the best of my abilities, so we’ll see what happens.”
