The first one, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, is the less surprising one. He was ranked as the NFL’s fourth-worst Week 6 player. Playing in his first career NFL game, the fifth-round pick allowed five pressures in 29 pass-blocking snaps filling in for the suspended Lane Johnson. Big V allowed two sacks.

Barwin was ranked as the league’s sixth-worst player of the week by PFF, as he was dominated all day by Redskins left tackle Trent Williams. Barwin totaled just two hurries and two stops in 31 pass rush attempts.

On the flip side, Williams was graded as the fifth-best NFL player of Week 6, allowing just one hurry in 41 pass-blocking snaps.

    The entire Eagles team played poorly against the Redskins.

    Their defense was non-existent, and Wentz showed how much of a rookie he really is.
    Washington totally shut him down and he was sacked several times.

    I don’t see the Boo Birds winning any more games with the upcoming roster they have.
