The Philadelphia Eagles are back on the road in Week 8 to face the Washington Commanders for the second time this season.

Fresh off their most complete game to date, the Eagles need to keep doing what they did against the Dolphins, and still clean some things up. The secondary is finally getting a little healthier with Reed Blankenship back from a rib injury, plus the addition of newly acquired safety Kevin Byard.

It’ll be interesting to see how Byard is used or rotated, especially since he’s only been in Philly for less than a week. WR Julio Jones was also elevated from the practice squad for Sunday’s game. Jones had a handful of snaps and a catch in his first Eagles game last week, and could earn more opportunities against Washington depending on the flow of the game.

Hang out here for updates and to chat, celebrate, vent, and argue in the comments!


1Q - 2:11 [Eagles 3, Commanders 7]: The Eagles were forced to settle for a long 51-yard field goal by Jake Elliott to get on the board.

1Q - 7:13 [Eagles 0, Commanders 7]: Sam Howell threw a 26-yard pass to Terry McLaurin for the first points of the game.
