The Philadelphia Eagles week 7 game of the 2017 NFL season is now in the books. Now pulling away with the best record in the NFL at 6-1, the Eagles beat Washington at The Linc 34-24. Having won five games in a row, the Birds now sit atop of the NFC East and have a very healthy division lead. While both sides of the ball came out into this game a bit rusty in the first quarter, they rebounded and found momentum to carry them through. QB Carson Wentz was once again the star of this game where he passed for four touchdowns, but also ran for over 60 yards, gaining five first downs on his six rushes. WR Nelson Agholor is becoming a legitimate threat in the slot and Zach Ertz continues to catch balls and touchdown passes. The defense was incredibly disruptive for Washington’s quarterback, Kirk Cousins with 10 QB hits and four sacks. It was a great home win where us fans are actually looking at the best team in football. We gave our analysis and takeaways from the game. We also got into the team stats, box score and graded the positions and coaches.
