Eagles Can’t Stop Redskins Run Game; Offense Falls Flat in 27-20 Loss

Philadelphia Eagles v Washington Redskins

Kirk Cousins threw for 263 yards and two touchdowns and the Redskins ran roughshod over one of the NFL’s top defenses in a 27-20 victory over the Eagles on Sunday.

The three-headed running attack of Matt Jones, Robert Kelley and Chris Thompson combined for 231 yards and a touchdown as the Redskins (4-2) won their fourth consecutive game.

After starting the season 0-2, Washington has its best record through six games since 2008.

The Redskins put up 493 offensive yards against the Eagles (3-2), who came in allowing an average of 266.8 yards and 12.6 points as the league’s second-best defense. Malcolm Jenkins intercepted Cousins and returned it 64 yards for a touchdown, but Philadelphia struggled to stop Washington for most of the day.

    Not to mention giving Washington 100+ penalty yards, that is at least 7 points Philly gave Washington.

    You can clearly see that the Bye week disrupted what Philly was starting to build on with their momentum.

    Philly is beating themselves, more than the opposing team beating them…

    They need to start clicking on both sides of the ball!
