The entire football world watched the Philadelphia Eagles' perfect season come to an end in primetime on Monday night. Great time management by Washington, self-inflicted mistakes, and questionable calls by the officiating crew all ended up playing a role in the Eagles suffering their first defeat of the season.

Star wide receiver A.J. Brown isn't hung up on taking the L, though.

Brown joked after the game that "this [expletive] is finally over with." He also said in response to the loss, "If you’re expecting me to have a frown, that’s not who I am."

This is an amazing response by Brown. Numerous teams have tried to follow in the footsteps of the 1972 Miami Dolphins, but they all ultimately failed. It'd be easy to get caught up in the pursuit of perfection and feel down after losing a chance at 17-0. Yet Brown isn't sweating at all, and he actually seems relieved.

Philadelphia certainly has no reason to beat itself up over an 8-1 start. If anything, the talk of potentially going undefeated throughout an entire season was likely just a distraction. Now that that's over, the Eagles can just focus one game at a time.

They'll look to get back on track with a win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds project Philly as a 6.5-point road favorite in that contest.
