SIDEWAYS - The Eagles tight end had his first 100-yard receiving game of the season and over the last three years has caught a total of 38 passes for 349 yards against the Redskins in December. But a block in the back that negated a Darren Sproles punt return for a touchdown Ertz so bad.
DOWN - He said after the game that he thought Sproles had caught the ball before he sledgehammered him. The Eagles returner obviously didn't have it. Nevertheless, Everett's hit was needlessly aggressive and knocked out one of the Eagles' most fearless players.
DOWN - He has just 11/2 sacks this season and only five in his last 31 games dating back to 2014. Steven Means cut into Connor Barwin's playing time on Sunday, but it just as easily could have been Curry playing less. He's been a disappointment.
SIDEWAYS - He provided an Eagles defense that has made few game-changing plays over the last month with a jolt when he picked off Kirk Cousins and ran for a touchdown. But he got burned by DeSean Jackson for an 80-yard touchdown and allowed a crucial fourth-down pass.
SIDEWAYS - Aside from two turnovers, he was near flawless. Wentz said he mixed up signals with Ertz on the first-quarter interception, and there was little he could have done to avoid the sack/fumble at the end of the game. The future remains bright.
SIDEWAYS - Brandon Brooks missed his second game out of the last three with what the Eagles said was an illness. The O-line was already ailing, but when Allen Barbre left with a hamstring injury, it forced Matt Tobin into the lineup. And that's never good thing.
Eagles Long Snappers
SIDEWAYS - Yes, long snappers plural. Jon Dorenbos left with a wrist injury, which forced backup Brent Celek to snap for a 50-yard Caleb Sturgis try. It didn't go well. Celek did better on a punt, but he left after Everett cheap-shot him. Trey Burton stepped in and while his snap was high, Donnie Jones was able to get it down for Sturgis, who nailed a 41-yarder.
UP - Cox ended a dry spell by recording 11/2 sacks. They were his first quarterback takedowns in nine games.
SIDEWAYS - He was successful on one of two challenges, and called some nifty plays on the Eagles' drive before the half, including a touchdown fade to Sproles. The players also seemed to respond to his public challenge. But wins and losses are what ultimately count.
SIDEWAYS - He played on an ankle that was clearly less than 100 percent and still caught eight passes for 79 yards. But the corner-route pass in the end zone where he couldn't drag two feet inbounds was costly.
UP - Should the Eagles pursue the free agent-to be this offseason? Who knows? That will depend on the price. But Jackson still has the jets to beat defenses over the top.
