The Washington Commanders collapsed in an epic manner against the Philadelphia Eagles in Landover, MD on Sunday. The final score of 24-8 makes the game sound a lot closer than it was. Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz was sacked nine times (one shy of a franchise record) and the Eagles had out-gained Washington by 247 yards prior to their garbage time touchdown drive.

Turns out the team building plan of just spending first round picks on SEC pass rushers has some holes in it.

Even the Alabama alumni on the team had a day to forget. Three of the five of them on the team were dressed, but only two saw the field.

Cam Sims - Wide Receiver

The Commanders utilization (or lack there of) of the 6-foot-5 Sims continues to be puzzling. The team went out of their way to bring him back and he was frequent red zone target last season. This year, however, has looked very different.

Sims didn't take the field Sunday, despite being dressed. So far this season, Sims has only been targeted three times. Offensive coordinator Scott Turner calling fade routes to 5-foot-9 Curtis Samuel with Cam Sims standing on the sidelines left many fans confused during today's game.

With the offense looking abysmal today, maybe things will change for Sims and he'll get into the rotation more.

Daron Payne - Defensive Tackle

Payne put up 25% of Washington's points for the game. After Washington failed on a 4th-and- goal from the 1-yard line, Philadelphia took over deep in their own territory, and Payne took full advantage of the situation.

Payne blew right past Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert and brought Miles Sanders down in the end zone after a hand off for a safety, Washington's first points of the day.

Beyond the safety, Payne did a decent job of continuing to make the case for him to get a big contract this off season. He tallied three tackles and a batted ball along with one hit on former Alabama teammate Jalen Hurts.

Jonathan Allen - Defensive Tackle

Allen was one of the more statistically active Washington defenders Sunday. The team captain was especially effective in the second half when the Commanders shut the Eagles offense out.

Allen went for four solo tackles and a tackle for loss while also batting a pass down and putting an additional hit on Hurts.

However, despite doing a decent job of getting pressure on Hurts, it was nowhere near enough to stop him and the Philadelphia offense as Hurts continues to make his case for being a dark horse NFL MVP candidate. Allen was particularly choice with his words after the game.

Phidarian Mathis - Defensive Tackle

Mathis continues to recover from a successful surgery to repair his torn meniscus.

Brian Robinson, Jr. - Running Back

Robinson's recovery from being shot twice in the knee during an attempted carjacking is going swimmingly. Last week, the former Hillcrest star could be seen at practice participating in agility drills. This week, Robinson was doing some half speed running and walkthroughs without a bandage or brace.

Sunday, the world got to see Robinson running routes on the FedEx Field turf during team warmups. It has not even been a month since Robinson was shot.

Next week, the Commanders will travel to Arlington, TX to battle the Dallas Cowboys in "Jerry World" on Oct. 2.
