RUSHING OFFENSE: LeGarrette Blount averaged just 2.1 yards per carry, but had a 21-yard run on a second-and-14 late in the game that kept the ball away from the Redskins. But the big difference-maker on the ground on this night was Carson Wentz, who rushed for 63 yards and had a career-high five rushing first downs.

GRADE: B+

PASSING OFFENSE: Wentz had his second four-touchdown game in three weeks and averaged 10.7 yards per attempt. He cooly changed the call at the line of scrimmage on a TD pass to Nelson Agholor, found Corey Clement in the end zone with a defender wrapped around him, and threw a 64-yard strike to Mack Hollins. All in all, a helluva day for the kid.

GRADE: A+

RUN DEFENSE: The Eagles allowed just two rushing first downs. Jay Gruden had so little faith in his team’s ability to run on the Eagles that he called pass plays on three straight third-and-shorts in the first half. The Redskins averaged just 3.4 yards per carry in the first three quarters.

GRADE: A-

PASS DEFENSE: The Eagles gave up three 30-plus-yard pass plays to the Redskins early as Kirk Cousins completed 12 of 16 passes in the first half. But the Eagles were able to get pressure on him in critical situations, both with a four-man rush and with blitzes. The Eagles sacked Cousins and intercepted him on third down.

GRADE: B

SPECIAL TEAMS: Jake Elliott booted 50- and 42-yard field goals before missing from 45 yards. It was his first miss in 13 attempts. Six of his seven kickoffs went for touchbacks. PR Kenjon Barner had a 22-yard return. Even without Chris Maragos, the coverage teams held the Redskins’ returners in check.

GRADE: A

OVERALL: They lost middle linebacker Jordan Hicks to a torn Achilles on the third play of the game. Their nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle, Jason Peters, suffered a season-ending torn ACL and MCL early in the third quarter. But as they have done all season, the Eagles somehow found a way to overcome those injuries and run their record to an NFL-best 6-1. Carson Wentz has thrown 11 touchdown passes in the last three games and averaged 7.9 yards on his eight carries against the Redskins.

GRADE: A
