NOT THEIR day. Not their year. In the final two minutes Sunday, Carson Wentz moved the Eagles 61 yards in nine plays, got them to Washington's 14-yard line with 21 seconds left, and dropped back to throw his 47th pass of the afternoon.
THE EAGLES' longest run last Sunday at Cincinnati went for 10 yards, and the runner was Carson Wentz. Splashier, more spectacular failures commanded the headlines in that 32-14 loss, the Eagles' third in a row, with each of those setbacks more one-sided than the one before it.

DOUG PEDERSON says he isn't worried about Carson Wentz, but that doesn't mean we can't be. Sunday's game was alarming, and the short, uncomfortable postgame media session with the rookie quarterback didn't provide any reassurances.

IS THE formula for offensive success the Eagles followed against Atlanta last Sunday repeatable, this week at Seattle? After all, the opposing defensive schemes are very similar, Falcons head coach Dan Quinn having gotten that job in 2015 after winning a Super Bowl as the Seahawks' defensive coordinator.
THERE WAS at least a little truth in what Doug Pederson was selling at Monday's news conference, when the Eagles' coach was asked about his use of the team's historically unproductive wide receivers in Sunday's victory over Atlanta.
