    Philadelphia, PA - The Philadelphia Eagles welcomed the Washington Redskins to Lincoln Financial in hopes of rebounding from a tough loss to the Titans. The Eagles playoff chances are still high but they can ill afford to lose any other games down the stretch. The Redskins came into the contest looking to derail those playoff chances. The game itself was a back and forth contest but it was the Eagles that came away with a 34-28 win in the rain in Philly. Bram Greenlea would throw for 350 yards including three touchdowns while the defense made just the right amount of plays to seal the game. CB Derek Cox would intercept RG3 deep inside Eagle territory to keep the Eagles ahead. Phily would add a late fg to extend the margin to 6 with only 20 seconds remaining which was not enough time for the Skins.

    The eagles offsne appeared poised to make some noise in this one as they promptly took the ball down field on their first possession. However, an uncharacteristic fumble by LeSean McCoy at the 5 yards line appeared to start a trend fo sloppy ball handling by the offense. Earl Boykin would fumble on a punt return a few series later and the Skins would capitalize on the good field position to take the lead. The game was also filled wth big pass plays. The Skins would take advantage of an aggressive play by Derek Cox who narrowly missed an interception. Unfortunately, the missed attempt was costly as Pierre Garcon would take the catch the distance on a 88 yard catch and run for the touchdown. The Eagles would make up for it almost immediately. Greenlea would hit Jarius Wright in the middle of the field and he would go 66 yards for a touchdown to tie it up.


    The game would go back and forth deep into the final quarter. LeSean McCoy would give the eagles the lead with 4 minutes remaining when he rumbled in from 2 yards out. The Redskins appeared poised to take thelead as they converted 3 thrid down opportunities. However, RG3 would try and hit Garcon deep when Derek Cox would step in front of the pass to pick off a sure touchdown reception.
