Carson Wentz could use some brotherly love from his offensive line.
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback was hit early and often by the Washington Redskins and that took its toll as he struggled with accuracy in a 27-20 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
The second overall pick in this spring’s NFL Draft completed just 11 of 22 passes for 179 yards and no touchdowns. The Redskins sacked Wentz five times, including two by Ryan Kerrigan, and hit him 11 times total for the game.
Kirk Cousins wasn’t much more accurate than Wentz, completing just 18 of 34 pass attempts, but he threw a pair of second-quarter touchdowns and was not sacked by the Philly defense.
The Eagles have lost two in a row after a 3-0 start. The Redskins, meanwhile, improved to 4-2 and would be tied for the NFC East lead with a Dallas Cowboys loss on Sunday.
