What we learned: Eagles vs. Redskins

10 September 2019 Eagles News


Starting off the season 1-0 is big for the Philadelphia Eagles considering they were down 17-0 at one point in their opener versus the Washington Redskins.

There were a bunch of takeaways one could have following this big opening game win. If I were to pick one, it’s about how the team held together and battled. The theme was resiliency and the Eagles showed us all that if you believe in yourself, you’re never going to be out of things.

In terms of offense, this game gave us all a sneak peak of how good this group can be once they get going. That whole second half, the run game was flowing and Carson Wentz and the wide receivers opened up.

It happened quickly, the Redskins’ defense couldn’t slow the Eagles down.

Another notable takeaway from the Eagles and their attack was how Wentz handled himself on third down.

Wentz was 12/13 for 197 yards and three touchdowns on third down. He made plays out of nothing and showed everyone he’s back for good.

Going forward, the Eagles play the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night. What they can grow on needs to happen this week as they cannot start off slow and defend the Falcons like they did this game.

The Eagles gave up a few big plays against the Redskins and we all know how they started the game. Moving forward, it’s important the Eagles set the tempo, especially on the road.
