The Eagles are no longer the NFL’s remaining unbeaten team as they fell to the Commanders 32-21. A surprising loss to say the least. Zach Berman from The Athletic joined the John Kincade Show to discuss to loss and what he saw from his view in the press box. Here is what Zach thinks led to the Eagles first loss.
“This was going to happen at some point. They were not going to go 17-0… If you had asked me going into the 2nd half of the schedule ‘What’s something you don’t think they can sustain in the 2nd half?’ I would’ve said it’s the turnover margin. It’s hard to keep being plus 2 or plus 3 in these games… They did have some bad calls against them, but that’s not why they lost this game.”
One of the biggest issues was the Eagles run defense, or lack thereof.
“It’s a different personnel grouping when you don’t have Jordan Davis in there. The run defense is really built around Jordan Davis… If you’re a team that believes you can run the ball decently, then this is something opponents are going to try and obviously have had success.”
