The Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles also have a scheduled matchup at Philly’s home stadium in Lincoln Financial Field in Pennsylvania after Christmas Day on December 26th. “I knew that (Darren) Sproles and (Ryan) Mathews are two great backs”. Cousins ended the game 31/46 for 290 yards, no interceptions and a touchdown.
Highlights, lowlights and other observations from the Eagles’ 23-20 loss to Washington at FedEx Field, where the Redskins hadn’t won two games in a row against Philadelphia since winning three straight from 1997-99. The Eagles only ran 19 plays in the first half, but Bradford’s ineffectiveness was a key factor. Consistently, if an offensive line blocks, you’re going to have positive plays more often than not.
Sam Bradford was sacked three times in the first half and none in the second, when the Eagles’ bipolar offense rediscovered something called the deep pass. But don’t bother asking Kelce about that. Trying to blame him, there’s a few stuff we did on offense and we could have took care of that so it didn’t come down to a field goal.
There were plenty of other problems for the Eagles.
A Pierre Garcon 15-yard facemask penalty for sticking his hand in the grill of Carroll helped stall the dfrive and Dustin Hopkins kicked a 33-yard field goal for a 16-13 advantage with 3:49 remaining in the third quarter. After the placekicker sustained a season-ending groin injury, the Eagles signed Caleb Sturgis last week.
The Redskins defense followed up the Cousins one-yard run into the end zone with a fumble recovery as Philadelphia tried to get vaguely fancy with a reverse in the backfield.
“I didn’t want to be out there limping around, so I took myself out not to hurt the team”, Peters said. It’s a systematic failure right now, and it doesn’t look like things are going to get better any time soon.
With the game on the line, quarterback Kirk Cousins drove the Burgundy and Gold 90 yards in 15 plays for the victor. “They have the ability to go, but they really are downhill”.
“If it is what they say it is, then there won’t be many balls in the air, that’s for sure”, Redskins coach Jay Gruden told the Washington Post.
On the season, the Washington Redskins average 228.0 yards in passing and 143.7 yards in rushing. A few guys making big-time plays in big-time situations.
“I think it’s a total group effort”, Murray said.
The Eagles converted just one of five third down attempts in the first half and allowed the Burgundy and Gold to go 5-for-9.
Two plays later from the one, Cousins fumbled the snap, scooped it up and, with a push from running back Matt Jones, bulled in for the score.
Bradford entered the game with three TD tosses all season. Kansas City, a tipped by a few to win the AFC West, is now a surprising 1-3.
Jordan Matthews (Wide Receiver): Matthews has caught a case of the drops this season and had a less than stellar week 3 against the Jets.
