Before the Redskins turn their attention to Week 2's showdown with the soon-to-be Super Bowl champion L.A. Rams, there are a few smaller storylines worth looking at that have been lost amongst the discussion of Kirk Cousins' unfortunate start and that last fumble that everyone definitely agrees about and no one is at all upset over.
Here are five things that aren't being talked about enough following Washington's Week 1 loss to Philadelphia:
1) Jamison Crowder was held in check... again
Here is the number of catches Jamison Crowder has had in each game since Week 13 of last season: 3, 2, 4, 1, 2 and 3, with that last number coming Sunday vs. the Eagles. And in those same games, he posted 42, 37, 24, 3, 16 and 14 yards, respectively.
This isn't to suggest that Crowder should be ceding snaps to Brian Quick, but it's a bit worrisome that a player as talented as he is has now turned in six very quiet contests in a row.
2) The Redskins top three corners all stood out
Josh Norman, Bashaud Breeland and Kendall Fuller all broke up passes that would've been huge chunk plays for Carson Wentz and the Philly offense. Norman was also credited for two other deflections, and Fuller was a huge reason why the Redskins registered their first turnover of 2017 (also a huge reason for that: The Eagles randomly deciding to throw a backwards pass when they here humming along).
Norman is due for a better second year with the 'Skins, but if Breeland and Fuller also improve, Greg Manusky will have three very good corners for his defense.
3) Junior Galette looked like the old Junior Galette — on one play, at least
The play didn't count in the end, but it was still promising. Pass rushers aren't normally recognized for their jukes, but check out this doozy Junior Galette came up with on Sunday:

Ryan Anderson lined up offsides so the sack didn't stand, but that footage indicates Galette can still offer plenty as long as his body allows him to.
4) Ryan Grant was actually quite solid
2016 Ryan Grant had 76 yards in 16 games. 2017 Ryan Grant has 61 yards in one game.
Yes, the offense will be more dangerous when Josh Doctson earns the trust of his coach and QB and becomes someone who's targeted often. But at least against the Eagles, Grant was useful and looked much better than he did at any point last season.
5) LeGarrette Blount took a shot at the FedEx Field crowd
Road opponents love to comment on the atmosphere at FedEx Field. Count LeGarrette Blount among them.
"Our fan base travels well," he said. "That's a big thing for us. Like you said, they drowned out all the Washington Redskins. All I heard was Eagles cheers throughout the game and throughout the process."
Philadelphia athletes can't help but talking about processes, apparently. He is right, though — there was tons of green in the stadium, and plenty of those fun, never annoying "E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!" chants near the end of the fourth quarter.
