The Commanders handed the Eagles their first loss of the season.

The Philadelphia Eagles came into Monday’s game against the Washington Commanders as the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL with an 8-0 record. That has officially come to an end after an impressive performance by Washington on Monday.

Washington dominated the line of scrimmage against Philadelphia from the very start of the game, rushing for 152 yards in the game on a whopping 49 rush attempts.

It was a close game throughout, but the turning point came on a controversial fumble early in the fourth quarter by Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert recovered by Washington.

The Commanders went on to add to their two-point lead with a field goal on the following possession from kicker Joey Slye.

Philadelphia continued to shoot themselves in the foot for the rest of the game.

Eagles wide receiver Quez Watkins wasted an excellent catch that put them deep into Commanders’ territory by fumbling while trying to get up and run, with the Commanders yet again recovering the fumble.

A costly Eagles penalty on defense cost them another chance to potentially get the ball back and win the game.

The Commanders had the ball on third down, and quarterback Taylor Heinicke was sacked on the play to seemingly force third down and a punt back to Philadelphia.

However, Eagles defensive lineman Brandon Graham collided with Heinicke on the play while Heinicke was giving himself up, resulting in a first down for Washington.

Philadelphia would get the ball back with just 5 seconds remaining, but they were unable to do anything of substance, resulting in their first loss of the season.

Very few gave the Commanders a chance to end the Eagles’ undefeated season, which caused a ton of reactions on social media after the game.

The Philadelphia Eagles will look to get their mojo back next week in a matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, while the Commanders will look to build on this momentum against the Houston Texans.
