Washington’s offense struggled again in the 1st half. Carson Wentz was sacked 4 times in the 1st quarter. His 5th sack in the 2nd quarter resulted in a fumble that led to the Eagles first TD. On the drive before that, Ron Rivera tried to throw a challenge flag after a huge pass to Devonta Smith. He bobbled the ball and then never got his 2nd foot down in bounds, but the refs didn’t allow the challenge after a quick snap from Philadelphia.

Washington’s defense started the game off outperforming Washington’s offense. They allowed a few big plays on a 2nd quarter drive, but stopped Philadelphia’s drive on 4th down in the red zone. Washington’s offense once again stalled, an Carson Wentz was strip sacked again, but he was able to recover the ball this time. Philly drove the ball down the field again to make it a 17-0 game with 2:56 left in the game.

Wentz and the offense sputtered again to another 3 and out. The Eagles got the ball back with 1:57 back, but an illegal block in the back penalty knocked them back. They moved the ball down the field and took advantage of a defense that has been on the field for too long. A big pass to Devonta Smith brought the ball to Washington’s 1 yard line with 25 seconds left. On 4th down, as time wound down to zero, Jalen Hurts found Smith again in the corner of the end zone. The Eagles are winning 24-0 at the half.
