The Philadelphia Eagles are normally unstoppable after they deploy their signature play, the “Brotherly Shove” (also referred to as the “tush push”). So unstoppable that some folks need it banned.
However not even the Eagles get it proper on a regular basis.
Towards the Washington Commanders on Sunday, the Eagles fumbled on the aim line whereas making an attempt to drive quarterback Jalen Hurts into the top zone.
That wasn’t the primary time the Eagles screwed up and wasted a landing alternative in opposition to the Commanders. Earlier within the recreation, after the Eagles had spent almost six minutes driving the ball 60 yards downfield, operating again Kenneth Gainwell fumbled on the five-yard line.
Philly’s struggles in opposition to Washington aren’t new. For some cause, the Eagles routinely stink after they play the Commanders. It does not all the time occur, however been it is fairly frequent in current historical past. The Commanders inexplicably dealt the Eagles their first lack of the 2022 season in Week 10. The identical factor virtually occurred in Week 4 this 12 months, when the Eagles wanted time beyond regulation to place the hapless Commanders away.
These two aim line turnovers could come again to hang-out the Eagles by the point the ultimate whistle blows. Regardless of two unbelievable landing catches from extensive receiver A.J. Brown, the Commanders have led almost the whole recreation. The rating is tied 24-24 within the fourth quarter.
