Three takeaways from Eagles’ impressive win over Redskins

Carson Wentz did not throw four touchdown passes in a single game at all last season.

The second-year Eagles quarterback has done it twice this year after tossing four scoring strikes in Monday’s 34-24 win over the visiting Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field.

2. The Eagles are the team to beat in the NFC — The Eagles now have a season sweep over the Redskins (3-4) and own a win over playoff contender Carolina. Despite losing Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters on Monday, the Eagles never flinched once they took the lead before halftime.

3. Don’t count the Redskins out — The Redskins are 3-3, but were in charge of Monday’s game until multiple offensive line injuries disrupted the offense. Washington is hoping to get Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman back next week and, as long as the knee injuries to starting tackle Trent Williams and guard Brandon Scherff aren’t serious, the Redskins have enough talent around Kirk Cousins to make a playoff push.

Arizona could benefit this year from a new rule the NFL instituted in May that allows teams to bring two players off injured reserve in the same season.

Among the seven Cardinals currently on IR are Palmer and running back David Johnson, whom Arians has projected to return around Thanksgiving.

Those two could likely be the players Arizona designates to return this season. Arians called the decision on whom to bring back “tough.”

The Cardinals (3-4) will turn over the offense to backup Drew Stanton when practice resumes on Monday. The Cardinals have a bye this week.

Third quarterback Blaine Gabbert will become the backup. The Cardinals signed former Chargers and Arizona State quarterback Mike Bercovici to their practice squad.chargers_129
