One of my favorite things that flew under the radar from the Eagles’ win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday was how Josh Norman acted like a sore loser following Philadelphia’s game-clinching touchdown.
After Fletcher Cox scooped and scored on a (controversial) strip-sack by Brandon Graham, the Eagles went for a two-point conversion. Doug Pederson explained they did this because Caleb Sturgis was hurt and couldn’t kick.
Carson Wentz threw to Alshon Jeffery in the end zone. Jeffery made the catch and celebrated but then Norman knocked it out of his hands after the play was over.

Earlier this offseason, Norman said he was looking forward to playing against Jeffery. I’m not so sure he feels the same way after losing.
I asked Josh Norman about how it went covering Alshon. Didn't wanna talk about it. "You tell me" #Eagles— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) September 10, 2017
It’s not like Jeffery totally dominated him, though, since the receiver only had three receptions for 38 yards. The conversion was nice (though not important), but the Eagles need more out of Alshon moving forward.
Jeffery and Norman will go at it again in Week 7.
