After looking at the performance of Carson Wentz and the Eagles' offense against Washington, it’s time to look at the Eagles' defensive performance, which was near dominant at times throughout the game. The pressure was consistent, whether it was with four rushers or more. The coverage was tight. And the run defense was stout. The story of the game, however, starts up front with the defensive line, and the complementary blitz packages Jim Schwartz sent at Kirk Cousins.

Shot 1 - #Eagles got after Kirk Cousins. 6-of-12 vs the blitz, 1 INT, 1 sack, 36.
