Good morning. The Washington Football Team is leading the NFC East, and is tied for the NFL lead at 1-0.
Few expected Washington to come away with the win, even after the Eagles lost several key starters for their season debut. But Washington’s strengths matched well with Philadelphia’s weaknesses, and when the time came to reset and adjust, they did what they needed to do.
It’s a stark contrast from the previous coaching regime; not only winning in Week 1 against the previous year’s divisional champion, but making the necessary changes at halftime to do it. Naturally, there were plenty of studs in Washington’s season-opening victory. Let’s take a look at who they were.
