    It was a game of offense, mixed with a little defense. The Eagles traveled to Fed Ex Field to take on the 4-6 Washington Redskins. The Eagles came into this one knowing that they key would be to stop RG3. They contained him very well.....on the ground. However through the air was a different story. Griffin had a pretty good game passing, at least when he threw to youngster Desmond Miranda. The speedster on the outside would time and time again burn the Eagles. He gobbled up 4 catches for a staggering 192 yards on the day. The Eagles red zone D, however; would hold the Redskins to a couple field goals on the day and not allow them to find pay dirt. Giffin ended the day passing 16 for 33, 404 yards, 1 TD and 3 meaningful INT's. That cold have been the difference maker in this one. On the opposite side, Ryan Tannehill finally put together a good game after 2 horrendous ones. Tannehill would also throw the rock 33 times connecting on 20 of them for 370 yards, 4 TD's and 1 INT. Jeremy Maclin was his go-to guy, with Desean Jackson still sidelined, as he hauled in 5 catches for 160 yards and 1 TD. Denarius Moore also got in on the action catching 3 passes for 112 yards and a TD. This game got very interesting towards the end. The Redskins were led on a beautiful closing drive to tie the game at 24, with just 24 seconds left. After a key 3rd down play which gained the Eagles a fresh set of downs, Ryan Tannehill threw the Hail Mary and crossed his fingers. On the other end of that Hail Mary, Denarius Moore! Moore would walk into the end zone 70 yards later, and the Eagles would somehow seal this game with only 7 seconds left. The Eagles got a huge win to stay atop the NFC East with the surging NY Giants. 31-24, Eagles.

    Key Stats:

    Eagles win the turnover battle, +2.
    Redskins third down percentage, 33%. Eagles third down percentage, 61%.
    Eagles allow only 52 rushing yards.

    Next Up:

    The Philadelphia Eagles (8-3) will host the lone unbeaten Indianapolis Colts (11-0). This should be a great game, and one the Eagles had circled at the beginning of the year. Both teams have similar stats, and the Colts may have the MVP this year in Andrew Luck. The Redskins (4-7) will host the division rival Dallas Cowboys (4-7), in a game that will pretty much eliminate one of these teams from playoff contention.

    I didn't deserve to win that game. I'll take it though. But it very easily could have gone the other way.
