Football games are full of moments, of incidents, from the inevitable (a fourth-string right tackle getting run over at a key time) to the comical (the Eagles holding sideline auditions when their first two long-snappers got hurt), to the unforgettable (a punt returning being nearly decapitated by an opponent acting with what appeared to be intent). Stitched together, they make up the story of an afternoon. 
But afternoons are parts of seasons, and seasons are parts of career arcs, and when you are talking about the Eagles in 2016, the big-picture view of the career arc of one Carson Wentz remains the essential exercise.

And Jeff McLane wrote, “Wentz had just fallen short, yet again, of leading the Eagles to a late comeback victory, but this loss felt different than the others. In each of his four previous opportunities, he had thrown an interception, or taken sacks after the holding the ball too long, or missed an open receiver. But Wentz did almost everything he could before the Eagles lost to the Redskins, 27-22, on Sunday.”

And David Murphy wrote, “…this was one that everybody should circle. Save it to the DVR and store it away. They say there are no moral victories, and they are probably correct, but in a season where wins and losses are secondary to the means through which they are achieved, the legacy of Sunday's loss lies not in the penalties or injuries or turnovers, but in the mean game of quarterback the rookie signal-caller played.”

Zach Berman summed up the afternoon this way: “By the time Carson Wentz sprawled on the grass after fumbling away the Eagles’ last hope for a victory Sunday, the Eagles were down to their fourth right tackle, third long snapper, second left and right guards, and only one running back.”
Les Bowen, in his game story, quotes aforementioned fourth-string right tackle, Matt Tobin, the victim on the game’s final sack — which resulted in a Wentz fumble — as saying that he suffered a knee injury on the previous play but that he stayed in the game for a simple reason: “There was nobody else.”
Mike Sielski says that the hit that nearly took Darren Sproles’ head off deserves a further look from the NFL, and a suspension.
Bob Ford writes that the Eagles’ defense, which was supposed to be a team strength, is just as big a disappointment as the offense.
One of the narratives that drove the coverage last week, fueled by the head coach, was the question of whether or not some players had given 100 percent effort. This week, Bob Brookover writes, the effort was there, even if the result wasn’t.
And Marcus Hayes said that tight end Zach Ertz, one of the maligned, redeemed himself.
Paul Domowitch says this game again displayed the Eagles’ need for a true field-stretching wide receiver, like the Redskins’ DeSean Jackson.
