Eagles run all over the Redskins
At 1-3 to start the season, the Philadelphia Eagles have looked nothing like the playoff team they were a year ago…until Sunday. The Eagles finally got their running game going and they pummeled the Washington Redskins on the ground rushing for 221 yards in their 17-7 victory at Veteran’s Stadium. Ricky Watters rushed for 150 yard and Charlie Garner had 45.
On the defensive side, the Eagles’ defense shut down the Redskins ground game. They held Terry Allen to just 10 yards rushing and the Redskins to only 56. The Eagles also sacked Gus Frerotte 3 times and picked him off once.
The Eagles are now 2-3 and will travel to Jacksonville next Sunday. The Redskins fall to 3-2 and host Dallas in a Monday Night matchup next week to determine the top spot in the NFC East.
