The Eagles lost their first game of the season to the Commanders on “Monday Night Football” — but, as seems to be the case for many NFL games, it wasn’t without some officiating controversy.

In the fourth quarter with the Eagles trailing 23-21, Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts threw a pass to Dallas Goedert, who turned to run upfield but was tackled by Commanders linebacker Jamin Davis and lost the football.

Washington recovered the fumble, but video replay made it overwhelmingly clear that Davis grabbed Goedert’s facemask as he was going to the ground.

Washington defensive tackle John Ridgeway actually ran the fumble into the end zone for a touchdown, and a lengthy review followed. However, the only change the officials made to the call was to mark Ridgeway down at the 34-yard line.

“We didn’t see a face mask on the field,” referee Alex Kemp explained to reporters after the game. “As far as the review, we were reviewing whether he was down by contact or whether it was a fumble and then whether the Washington player who recovered the ball was also down by contact.”

The Commanders ended up kicking a field goal on the drive, extending their lead to five points and forcing Philadelphia into a situation where they needed a touchdown instead of a field goal to take the lead.

The Eagles ended up fumbling again on the next possession, with Quez Watkins coughing up the ball this time.

Early in the fourth quarter, Goedert caught a pass from Jalen Hurts over the middle of the field for a first down.

However, he was hit from behind by a pair of Washington defenders–one of whom grabbed his facemask–and he fumbled. The Commanders recovered the ball and appeared to return the giveaway for a touchdown.

Goedert did not get back up after the play, remaining on the ground until Philadelphia trainers came out to tend to him.

But A subsequent review of the play deemed that the Washington defender who recovered the ball was down by contact, taking the touchdown off the scoreboard.

The replay also clearly showed that Goedert had his facemask pulled during the tackle, but officials did not throw a flag on the play, and could not issue a penalty during the review.


The Philadelphia Eagles will be without a big part of their offense for a spell.

Tight end Dallas Goedert will miss extended time due to a shoulder injury he suffered during Monday night’s loss to the Washington Commanders, NFL Network Insiders Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday, per sources.

Goedert’s shoulder injury is not expected to end his season, per Garafolo and Pelissero.

The injury came on a catch in which the tight end was ripped down by the facemask on a missed penalty.

Also Goedert’s absence wipes out a big chunk of the Eagles’ passing offense. The tight end sits second on the team with 544 yards this season and third in catches with 43 to go along with three touchdowns.

With Goedert on the shelf, Jack Stoll figured to get more reps, as does Grant Calcaterra. The Eagles also opened up Tyree Jackson’s window to return from the PUP list after last season’s ACL tear, and he could play a significant role when healthy.
