The Philadelphia Eagles suffered their first loss of the season in Week 10, falling to the Washington Commanders, 32-21, on Monday Night Football. It was a stunning outcome for the undefeated Eagles, who entered the game as double-digit favorites against their NFC East rivals.

Philadelphia looked out of sorts on both sides of the ball, especially on defense where the Eagles allowed a season-high 32 points. It didn't help that they only had 10 men on the field rather than 11 on two separate plays.

Those are embarrassing mistakes that can't happen, especially at this stage of the season. On Thursday, defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon took full responsibility for both miscues.

Philadelphia needs to avoid similar mistakes going forward if it wants to win the Super Bowl this year.

The Eagles will look to rebound in Week 11 against an Indianapolis Colts team that has struggled on offense all season. However, Indy did look much better on that front last week with Matt Ryan back under center in Jeff Saturday's coaching debut.

The Eagles are currently 6.5-point road favorites against the Colts in Week 11, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
