The NFL Philadelphia Eagles score last night against the Washington Redskins was thirty four to twenty four. This game was played on Monday Night Football in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I actually watched most of this game.
A competitive game but mostly controlled by Philadelphia. Each team recorded an interception. Kirk Cousins threw for three hundred and three yards to no avail.
Carson Wentz threw four touchdown passes with two hundred sixty eight yards. The Washington Redskins rushed for seventy five yards. The Philadelphia Eagles rushed for one hundred twenty seven yards.
Philadelphia recovered one Washington fumble. This was a pretty even statistically speaking game. However, Washington Redskins could not over come seventeen points Philadelphia scored in the second quarter.
The Redskins scored in every quarter. Philadelphia scored in the last three quarters and built a seventeen point lead. A late Washington touchdown made this game appear closer than perhaps it was.
The Washington Redskins have won three games with three losses. The Philadelphia Eagles have won six games with just one loss. They have the National Football League’s best record.
They are in first place in the National Football Conference east division. Washington is tied for second in this same division. The Eagles have won five straight games.
Philadelphia is the last team left this year with just one loss. This team entered this game with the best defense against the run, allowing around sixty yards per game. They performed quite similar allowing just seventy five total yards on the ground.
At one point in the game Carson Wentz had outgained the entire Washington Redskins ground game with his sixty three yards rushing. Carson Wentz has a league leading seventeen touchdowns with just four interceptions. The Philadelphia Eagles have beaten their division opponent, Washington Redskins, twice now this year.
Washington is three games behind in the win column and two games behind in the loss column.
