12:34 p.m. - Max Scherzer probably would have liked to be at Wrigley Field pitching in the NL Championship Series. But now that the Nationals' season is over, their ace is spending time hanging out at other D.C. area sporting events. He was at the Caps game last night, and here he is at FedEx Field before the Redskins and Eagles face off.
Here's our JP Finlay talking with Scherzer.
1:16 p.m. — The Redskins defense is off to a good start. On the Eagles' first drive of the game, Ryan Kerrigan registered a sack and a half on rookie quarterback Carson Wentz. And the youngster has the rips on his jersey to prove it, too.
1:27 p.m. — Things are getting chippy already between the Redskins and Eagles. So much so that left tackle Trent Williams swung on a Philly defender. Don't mess with the big man.

1:39 p.m. — And the Redskins are on the board first! Kirk Cousins hits Jamison Crowder for a 16 yard touchdown catch and it's 7-0 Washington late in the first quarter.
1:57 p.m. — And another one! Cousins finds Vernon Davis and the Redskins take a 14-0 lead over the Eagles early in the second quarter.
2:00 p.m. — Besides pretending to shoot a bow and arrow, another thing you can't do in the NFL is pretend to play basketball in the endzone. Davis was flagged for excessive celebration after his second-quarter score.

2:02 p.m. — Well, that didn't take long. The Eagles strike back immediately as Wendell Smallwood runs back the kickoff for a touchdown. It's 14-7 Redskins.
2:12 p.m. — Aaaand we're tied. The offense was rolling into Eagles territory before Cousins threw an interception for a touchdown to safety Malcolm Jenkins. It's 14-14.
2:30 p.m. — Redskins respond with a touchdown drive capped off by a Matt Jones run from one yard out. It's 21-14 as the two teams head to halftime.
