Redskins at Eagles: Highs and Lows from Week 13

Redskins at Eagles: Highs and Lows from Week 13

For the first time in weeks, the Washington Redskins are not in first place, or at least tied for first place in the NFC East. After the Dallas Cowboys extended their winning streak to four games with a victory over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, the Redskins entered Monday night's contest against the Philadelphia Eagles half a game behind the Cowboys in the division.

The good news for Washington was that two key offensive weapons, running back Chris Thompson and wide receiver jamison Crowder, returned to the lineup after missing several weeks due to injury.

The Redskins are 5-22 in their last 27 Monday Night Football contests. Unfortunately, things did not change against the Eagles.

Here are the highs and lows from the game:

REDSKINS at EAGLES: Highs and Lows

FIRST QUARTER:

HIGHS: Not much went well for the Redskins in the first quarter, but it was good to see Thompson get involved. The Redskins looked for their pass-catching running back right away, as he had two touches on the Redskins opening drive.

The Redskins defense may have allowed a touchdown on the opening drive, but they can sniff a turnover. The Eagles luckily recovered two fumbles on their opening drive. 

LOWS: The Eagles had absolutely no issues moving the ball in the first quarter. Quarterback Carson Wentz connected with Golden Tate on a six-yard touchdown to open up the scoring, as the Eagles took seven minutes off the clock on their opening drive.

The Redskins couldn't get anything going on offense, especially with the run game. Through the first quarter, they had just 12 yards rushing in the first quarter.

SECOND QUARTER:

HIGHS: Hello, Adrian Peterson. 

The 33-year-old showed no signs of his age as he raced 90-yards for a touchdown, putting the Redskins up 10-7 with just over nine minutes left in the second quarter.

It was Peterson's longest career rush, which is surprising for a guy who was just eight yards shy of breaking the single-season rushing yards record in 2012.

On the Eagles ensuing drive, they once again moved the ball down with ease. But the Redskins made a huge stop on fourth and goal from the one yard line, as Zach Brown stuffed Eagles running back Josh Adams behind the line of scrimmage.

After the Eagles retook the lead late in the seond quarter, Sanchez ran a solid two-minute drill leading to a Redskins field goal. All things considered, trailing by just a point entering halftime is not the worst thing for the Redskins.

LOWS: Uh, oh.

Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy was taken into the Redskins locker room with a lower leg injury following an awkward tackle from Eagles safety Michael Jenkins. He looked to be in serious pain. The Redskins now turn to Mark Sanchez, who has not played since 2016, to run the show.

The Eagles offense still continues to have their way with the Redskins. They retook the lead over the Redskins late in the second quarter on a 14-yard touchdown run by Darren Sproles. Thorugh the first half, the Eagles have held possession just about twice as long as the Redskins.

THIRD QUARTER:

HIGHS: As the Eagles looked like they were on their way to another touchdown drive, cornerback Josh Norman intercepted a Carson Wentz pass in the end zone, keeping the game at a 14-13 contest.

Other than that, not much went right for the Redskins in the third quarter.

LOWS: News broke as the third quarter began that McCoy was out for the game, and the season, with a broken right fibula. For the second time in three games, the Redskins have lost their starting quarterback due to a broken leg.

The Redskins offense has been stagnant all third quarter. They were unable to sustain any type of momentum, running just eight plays for 17 total yards.

The Eagles have outgained the Redskins 138-17 in the third quarter, and are in the red zone as the fourth quarter begins. Can they punch it in, or can the Redskins defense make another stop.

FOURTH QUARTER:

HIGHS: Hard to think of any positives when the redskins only totaled 19 yards of total offense in the quarter. The only silver lining is they prevented a couple promising Eagles' drives from resulting in touchdowns, making the final score look not as bad as it really was. 

LOWS: The Eagles opened up the fourth quarter with a four-yard touchdown from Wentz to Jordan Matthews. A two-point conversion pass to Golden Tate put the Eagles up nine, and more importantly, by two possessions. For much of the night, the Eagles offense looked far superior to a Redskins defense that was once one of the best in the league just a month or so ago.

On the Redskins' ensuing drive, Mark Sanchez reminded us who he really is. It took just under two quarters for Sanchez to throw his first interception as a Redskins quarterback. His turnover resulted in an Eagles field goal, extending their lead to 25-13. They tacked on another field goal late to extend their lead to 28-13.

The Redskins offense was nonexistent in the second half. They were outgained 436-235 overall, and only ran 12 offensive plays in the fourth quarter. The Eagles held possession for close to 20 of the remaining 30 minutes, consistent with their first half time of possession dominance.  Third-string quarterback or not, the Redskins offense has to be better. Plain and simple.
