How bad is the NFC East truly?
The Eagles lost yesterday to go 4-10-1 and officially miss the playoffs.
The first place team is the WFT.
Which started the woeful Dwayne Haskins, who was benched in the fourth quarter of yesterday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.
Haskins was largely unable to move the Washington offense through three-plus quarters, completing 14 of 28 passes for 154 yards, no touchdowns, a lost fumble, two interceptions and a 36.9 passer rating. Washington, which could lock up the NFC East title with a win, was down 20-6 at the time.
Haskins, the 15th overall pick in the 2019 draft, was replaced by Taylor Heinicke, who saw his first regular season action since 2018, when he was with the Panthers. Washington quarterback Alex Smith was inactive with a calf strain.
After being spotted partying while not wearing a mask after Washington’s loss last week to the Seattle Seahawks, Haskins was fined $40,000 and had his captaincy rescinded.
