The Philadelphia Eagles won a football game on Monday night over the Washington Redskins by the final of 28-13. It wasn't exactly pretty. (see Roob's observations)
Washington lost their 2nd-string quarterback Colt McCoy for the season and were forced to go with Mark Sanchez in the first quarter. The Eagles found a way to win the game but if you have any expectation of this team making a playoff run, let alone simply beating the Dallas Cowboys next week, the Birds should have run away with this one. They did not do that.
But the game wasn't all for naught. The Eagles' playoff hopes are still alive. We got to point plenty of ire in the direction of Jason Witten, which is always fun.
And the Internet treated us to this enjoyable meme.
