Handing out 10 awards from the Eagles-Redskins game - Philly.com
DeSean made a huge play on his 81-yard TD, and he was chirping at the Eagles' bench throughout the game. However, at the gun, DeSean ran straight to the locker room without shaking hands with his old boys.

Random Sunday Night Thoughts - Iggles Blitz
The Eagles did not give up a sack today, despite the makeshift OL. Nick Foles did take a beating, but still had time to throw for 325 yards and help the team score 37 points. I couldn’t help but think back to the Osi Game from 2007. Winston Justice had to start at LT and the Eagles were without Brian Westbrook. Andy Reid came up with an awful game plan that had the team passing 2 times for every run play. Donovan McNabb was sacked 12 times and the Eagles only scored 3 points.

‘Let’s Make Them Pay For This’ - Birds 24/7
Foles eventually got to his feet to the delight of a crazed Eagles fan base. Turns out, it wasn't an interception at all. The ball bounced before Breeland got it. The Eagles retained possession and Foles stayed in the game. Typically calm and even-keeled, the players inside the huddle immediately following the incident saw a different side of Foles. "Nick was fired up. Good to see. Good to see your quarterback get fired up," said Herremans. "[He said]: Let's go make them pay for this."

LeSean McCoy denies he is struggling despite poor showing against Redskins in Eagles' win - NJ.com
The season is now three games old, and although it might not be time to panic, things certainly are not looking good. Still, despite seeming frustrated, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy did not seem ready to press the panic button. "What struggles?" McCoy said after the game. "I don't feel like I'm struggling at all."

Jason Peters on brawl: I'm protecting Nick Foles - CSN Philly
"I wasn’t having it," Peters said. "That’s just a cheap shot. You’re taking on the smallest guy on the field and you’re cheap-shotting him, and he’s not even trying to make the play.

Amid DeSean's return, Maclin shows his mettle - Inquirer
They walked to the center of the field as captains, but Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson were no longer teammates. It wasn't just the different uniforms they were wearing that made the brief meeting an unusual one. The Eagles have one-game captains. The Redskins have three season-long captains and pick an additional two for each game. You can be certain their respective teams selected Maclin and Jackson because of the meaning it had for each wide receiver.

Kelly's Motto: One Down, One To Go - PE.com
Chip Kelly has a simple motto for his team: "One down, one to go." After Sunday's 37-34 win over Washington, Kelly made it clear that's how takes every season, and every game, and every quarter, and every play - one step at a time.

Eagles-Washington brawl after Nick Foles hurt - SB Nation
Jason Peters ran to his quarterback's aid, and soon both teams were locking horns on the sideline. Referees were trying to get control of the situation, demanding both sides return to their benches. It took almost a minute for the dust to settle, all while Foles was laying on the field been seen to by trainers.
