Are you watching the Redskins try and fight back against Philadelphia?
It’s 33-20 with just over 10 minutes left in the game. The Redskins narrowed it from 33-7 to 33-20, but the Eagles are driving the ball on the ground. The Redskins just accepted a 10-yard penalty for holding to get the Eagles out of field goal range. Now Washington gets the ball back at their own six, with 9+ minutes left in the game.
Washington, or more specifically, Bob Griffin looked rusty for the first half of this game. Plus, its obvious the Redskins are trying to keep him from running as much. The Eagles are getting tons of pressure in Griffin’s face, something he’s not used to seeing as much.
I haven’t seen the Eagles defense as aggressive in years. Until now, where the Redskins are moving the ball pretty efficiently. From their own six, they’ve moved to the Philadelphia 42 where it’s 3rd and 2. Time out, Washington, after not getting set for this play. First down, Washington on a nice catch by Santana Moss.
7:01 left, 3rd and 10 for Washington from the Philadelphia 37. Incomplete. 4th and 10, Washington going for it. Incomplete at the 19 on a nice play, over on downs. 6:48 left. Washington needs to stop the Eagles on this set of downs right now or it is truly over.
It’s truly over. Jason Avant catches a ball wide open and stretches at the last second, 1st and 10 Eagles. 4:39 left, and Washington’s left calling time outs.
Mike Vick does not know how to slide feet first. Oh well, this one is PROBABLY over, so we’ll do something else until the next game starts.
