3) Dameon Pierce makes his claim for the Offensive Rookie of the Year
Coming into the game, rookie RB Pierce was second in the betting odds for Offensive rookie of the year behind Seattle Seahawks’ Kenneth Walker III. He definitely put in his rightful claim for the award after career highs in carries as well as rushing with 27 carries for 139 yards.
4) Are the Eagles beatable this season?
While securing a franchise record eighth consecutive win to start the season, the Eagles have now restricted the teams they play against to below 20 points for a fourth straight time and have scored 20 or more points in all the games this season.

They face their divisional rivals Washington Commanders next week who have a 4-4 record and are bottom of the NFC East.
