    It was a game that could decide the fate of the NFC East this season. Philadelphia traveled to the rowdy Fed Ex field where the rawkus Redskin faithful awaited. Philly came into the game with a record of 5-5 and atop the East division. The Redskins however were still closely on their heels at 4-6. And with 1 victory over their division rivals arleady, Washington knew it still had a very good shot at flipping those division standings after this week. That hope would quickly diminish however as soon as the Eagles defense would step onto the field. They came out guns blazing just as they had in the previous week against the Dallas Cowboys. RGIII was pressured all day long and made some silly mistakes because of it. On the day Griffin was a paultry 8-19 for 153 yards, 0 TDs, and the stat killer, a staggering 6 INTs. Yes folks, it seems this Eagles defense is back to it's old ways. After a slow start on the season, they now have 11 INTs in the previous two weeks and are seemingly finding their stride. They converted every interception into points, which tallied to 38 of the 45 they would score on the day. Offensively, Ryan Tannehill again played field general time and time again. Finishing with 225 yards on 9-13 passing and adding 2 TDs with no picks, Tannehill had another very solid game for the Eagles. He's now 23-8 in the TD-INT ratio and if he keeps that up you would think the youngster may get some pro bowl consideration. We'll have to see about that in the coming weeks. Philly would go onto win this one and increase their divison lead over rivals Washington and New York. Final, 45-7.

    Players of the Game:

    Philadelphia Defense - 6 INTs, 0 points allowed
