So, what did we learn from the Eagles' victory over the Washington Commanders in Week 4.

The Philadelphia Eagles remain undefeated. Jake Elliot converted on his 54-yard game winning field goal in overtime versus the Washington Commanders. It was a welcome ending to a back-and-forth affair that could truly have gone either way. The tougher and more resilient Birds came away with the hard-fought victory, and that is what matters the most. As a result, they're 4-0 on the season.

There are some positives and negatives to take from the game. It's always great to come away with a win especially against a division opponent, but the performance did highlight some weaknesses. Overall, the team continues to make progress, but in true Philly fashion. This is one we'll discuss for a few more hours. Let's begin with a pair of positives.

Jalen Hurts delivers his best passing performance of the season.

Stop us if you have heard this before. Quarterback Jalen Hurts was the team MVP in 2022, which led him to signing a mega contract in the offseason. His first three games of this season were pedestrian to his standards, but his team was still taking care of business.

On Sunday, he enjoyed his cleanest game as a passer this season. He completed 25 of 37 attempts for 319 yards and two touchdowns. Most importantly, he did not have any turnovers in the game, a first for this season so far.

QB1 is working with a new offensive coordinator in Brian Johnson, but this game showed some progress. Anyone doubting the arrangement after the first few weeks can now relax a little. Things appear to be settling.
