Cousins leads Redskins over Eagles 27-22

Cousins leads Redskins over Eagles 27-22

Last year, in a big Saturday night game in Philly, the Redskins won the NFC East, knocking the Eagles out of the playoffs in the process. It's the first time this season the Eagles have given up more than one rushing touchdown in a game. Redskins Continue To Get After The Quarterback Another Redskins win in the books, 27-22 over the Eagles in Philly.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Chris Thompson kept running into the end zone on one of those rare times scoring a touchdown wasn't the optimal play.

On second down, Ryan Kerrigan made the play that saved the Redskins' season.

The 25-yard touchdown run wasn't the end, though - first the Eagles got another opportunity against a Redskins defense that had been porous at times. Or the strip-sack on the Birds' final offensive play of the game, which came with them just 14 yards from winning the game. Fantasy Tip: WR DeSean Jackson went to three Pro Bowls with Eagles from 2008-13.

Instead, the Redskins all but eliminated the Eagles (5-8) from playoff contention, and put their own playoff aspirations back on track at 7-5-1.

"Hard to say. We lost", Wentz said. The Eagles got all the way to the Washington 14-yard line before Kerrigan's strip sack on 2nd-and-10.

Kim also has some concerns for her family. "He is receiving outpatient care elsewhere with a medical team", says their source. I'm with Kim on this - Kanye getting help right now is absolutely essentially for the return of a healthy and happy Mr.

All of that led to head coach Doug Pederson's saying that Sunday was probably Wentz's best game of the season (see 10 observations). "They hung together. They battled". In the third quarter, Jackson put this on display as he caught an 80-yard touchdown pass to give the Redskins a 14-13 lead. The Eagles have made it clear they are going to pursue Jackson this offseason as he is set to be a free agent.

"DeSean's speed. that big-play ability just jump starts this football team", Gruden said. In the first quarter, the Eagles were threatening to score, and Wentz threw an interception in the end zone. The third quarter was all Skins, as two touchdown passes from Kirk Cousins had the visitors up 21-13 after three-quarters. Kicker Dustin Hopkins missed a 38-yard field goal that could have tied it 3-3. Rob Kelley knocked over a defender at the end of a nifty, 22-yard TD run.

Wentz completed 32 of 46 pass attempts for 314 yards and a touchdown to go with that INT.

The Redskins have taken the momentum of the game and are putting their stamp on the contest.

The Eagles were without their first two options at long snapper as Caleb Sturgis lined up to kick a 41-yard field goal to take the lead. With a rookie right guard and the fourth option at right tackle, they were driving. Burton practiced a couple snaps on the sideline along with linebacker Mychal Kendricks. And even though Burton's snap wasn't ideal, Jones handled the high ball and Caleb Sturgis kicked a 41-yard field goal to give the Eagles a 22-21 lead. The rookie quarterback, without key players like Brandon Brooks, Allen Barbre, and Darren Sproles later in the game, Wentz battled. Washington's Deshazor Everett ran Sproles over, drawing an unsportsmanlike penalty. He's been frustrated since the start of the season, when it became obvious he was a part-time player.

On the opening possession of the game, the Eagles marched down the field against the Redskins to take a 3-0 lead. Two plays later, the Eagles picked up 12 more yards, and suddenly they were within 27 yards of the endzone with 42 seconds and a timeout remaining. Kendricks said no one told him to snap footballs on Sunday, but the veteran - who chose to take up the craft this season - grabbed a football and began to heave it through his legs.
