PHILADELPHIA, PA – There was only one undefeated team left in the NFL heading into Week 10, and now there are none, as the Commanders marched into Lincoln Financial Field on Monday night and handed the Eagles their first loss of the season, 32-21.
It was a crazy game throughout, all the way to the closing seconds–when Casey Toohill scooped up a Philadelphia fumble on a desperation lateral play and scampered into the end zone for the final Washington score.
To beat the league leaders, the Commanders needed an all-around effort, and perhaps a little good fortune along the way… And they got both in spades.
Terry McLaurin caught eight passes for 128 yards. Brian Robinson Jr. and Antonio Gibson combined to rush for 130 yards and two touchdowns on 40 carries. Joey Slye nailed all four of his field goals on a windy night, from distances of 58, 55, 44, and 32 yards out. And journeyman quarterback, Taylor Heinicke, who threw for 211 yards, made clutch plays throughout the game to keep the Commanders in it early, as well as to preserve the lead late.
Kevin Harlan and Ross Tucker called the action on Westwood One.
