The Eagles are 3-0 after a 24-8 loss to Carson Wentz and Commander at FedEx Field on Sunday afternoon.
Philadelphia racked up 400 yards of fouls while holding Washington to 240 yards and fired nine career-high quarterback Carson Wentz, as the former No. 2 overall pick was battered all afternoon.
The Eagles will now regroup and prepare to host their Super Bowl-winning coach, Doug Pederson, who is now coach of the incipient Jacksonville Jaguars.

One of the Eagles’ initial reactions was to acquire A.J. Brown centers around how it will impact DeVonta Smith.
The second-year wide receiver kept saying all the right things, and even after being held without a catch, Smith was one of Brown’s biggest cheerleaders after the former Titan star’s 10-catch, 155-yard debut.
On Sunday against the Commander, Smith was some Batman and all ‘Slim Reaper’ after leading Philadelphia with eight catches for 169 yards and one goal on 12 targets.
Eight catches and 169 yards are all highs for the former Heisman Cup winner.

Graham has spoken about playing beyond 2022, and on Sunday, he looked like a more explosive version of himself.
Dominating former team-mate Carson Wentz, Graham recorded six tackles, one tackle to lose, one deflected pass, 2.5 sacks and five quarterback strikes.
