Even when things go well for the Eagles today, there’s something amiss.
And a week after welcoming kicker Caleb Sturgis, they may be back in the market sooner than expected.
Sturgis missed a 33-yard field goal attempt just before halftime, and then missed a 33-yard extra point after the Eagles finally made a play on offense in the second half.
They barely got to celebrate Riley Cooper’s 61-yard touchdown, a rare moment of offensive competence, when Sturgis missed the point after, leaving them down 13-6 in Washington.
The Eagles made a few big plays in the first half, with DeMarco Murray popping a 30-yard run and Sam Bradford hitting Nelson Agholor for a 45-yard gain. But Agholor also fumbled away a reverse attempt, which was kind of emblematic of their day.
