Redskins beat up Eagles' defense on way to 27-20 victory

The Eagles earned a pair of field goals in the fourth which was their only scoring plays after the pick-6 and kick-off return.

Washington hit him early then teed off on him late. Obviously unacceptable if you want to win a football game. I tried to put it on Vernon [Davis] as quickly as possible and the safety made a good play and was able to undercut it. His status moving forward is unclear, but the Eagles expect cornerback Leodis McKelvin to practice Wednesday after missing this weekend's game with a hamstring injury, which could help tiresome the impact of Brooks' potential absence. DeSean Jackson, the Eagles' old friend, caught a 35-yard pass to bring the ball into Eagles territory. It wasn't an egregious decision, and put into long-term perspective maybe not the wrong one, but it was costly.

On a play later in the game, this is the look that Wentz faced from the defense. Before the first drive was over, Kerrigan would sack Wentz again.

The coaches didn't back up Wisniewski's assertion about their intelligence: They didn't bench Vaitai, or apparently even consider it. Wisniewski said the staff didn't approach him. Did I mention it was right down the gut!

But Pederson said using extra resources to provide occasional help to Vaitai wasn't the reason for the offensive woes and said he can still give Vaitai help without hurting Wentz's ability to distribute the ball. That wiped out a sensational scramble by Wentz to buy time for a 38-yard pass to Dorial Green-Beckham on third-and-11 from the Eagles 35.

"Listen, last week, this week, these are going to be great learning lessons for Carson", Doug Pederson said.

Running back Darren Sproles, who had 14 catches coming in, was targeted once and caught only one pass. From early in the second quarter until the Eagles first touch of the second half, Washington ran 39 plays to the Eagles one, a kneel down to end the half. "He would never do anything that would jeopardize a 15-yard penalty". [The Eagles] had a right tackle who I could have done as much as he did, because he didn't block anybody, either, in [Halapoulivaati] Vaitai.

Ansah, Ebron, Levy Out For Lions Against Eagles
In Philadelphia , Tulloch has been reunited with former Lions head coach Jim Schwartz, who is the Eagles' defensive co-ordinator. The Lions stunned one of the league's best defenses by scoring touchdowns on all first three of their first-half possessions.

Vaitai was assigned help in the form of tight ends and running backs in double teams or by getting a piece of Kerrigan before they continued on to their pass patterns. He just has to find a way to stop making that one bad throw each game, and he will be amongst the league's best quarterbacks.

High throws were a continual problem.

"I felt OK (in the pocket)", he said. It essentially killed that drive. The final run total for the Eagles was 21 carries for 94 yards, which reads like a pretty good day, but during key times of the game, Philly was completely unable to move the ball on the ground. Because of Smallwood's kickoff return touchdown and Jenkins' pick-six, they scored 14 points in the quarter. Roethlisberger had only 83 yards passing with five minutes left before he drove the Steelers 97 yards for a touchdown.

The Eagles only ran four plays in the second quarter. It appeared to quell the Redskins rush for a period, and Wentz started hitting receivers down the field from the pocket.

"It's killing us, killing us, killing us", Eagles tight end Zach Ertz said. They set the tone and Jones in particular continued his upward trend, rushing for 135 yards on 16 touches and a touchdown. Gruden said the Redskins confused Wentz with different looks.

Plus, Cousins threw for two TDs and was not sacked a single time. "I misread some things, I have to get back and watch the tape, though". I can't take those sacks and that's definitely on me. His first reads failed to get separation. Pederson said he's still being evaluated.
