San Francisco 49ers @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
The Eagles had a bevy of opportunities to win this game, but ultimately they failed to cash in and suffered their first loss by a score of 14-11. Nothing illustrates their struggles better than failing to score on a first and goal after a 91-yard pass from Jalen Hurts to Quez Watkins. On the whole, Hurts struggled throwing the football, finishing 12-23 for 190 yards. He did rush ten times for 82 yards and a touchdown however.
Philadelphia’s offensive struggles offset a strong performance from their defense, especially early on. The Niners did not get a first down until early in the second quarter and did not score until a 97 yard march for a touchdown immediately following Philadelphia’s failed goal line possession. Jimmy Garoppolo ultimately finished 22-30 for 189 yards and a touchdown and was not sacked.

Prescott was 5-5 on the drive and finished 23-27 for 237 yards with no touchdowns and an interception.
Chargers Quarterback Justin Herbert had a strong day throwing against the Dallas defense, but he was intercepted twice and suffered two sacks. The Cowboys did hold the Chargers to under 100 yards rushing, with Herbert and running backs Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson totaled 95 on 19 carries.

NEW YORK GIANTS @ WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM
A chaotic fourth quarter ultimately ended with a 30-29 Washington victory after a 43 yard Dustin Hopkins field goal as time expired. Hopkins originally missed a 48 yarder but got another chance with a Giants offsides penalty. Washington scored 13 points in the fourth and worked around a Taylor Heinicke interception with 2:22 left in the game that led to a Giants field goal.
Heinicke finished 34-46 with 336 yards, two touchdowns, and the interception in his first start following the injury to Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 1. Daniel Jones finished a pedestrian 22-32 for 249 yards and a touchdown but did add 95 yards and a touchdown on nine carries. Saquon Barkley struggled to get going again, totaling just 57 yards on 13 carries.
