While the Philadelphia Eagles keep seeing offensive linemen drop like flies, they keep stacking up September victories.
Once again, Philadelphia survived a 10-point deficit to overcome the Washington
Redskins Football Team 37-34 on Sunday.
Despite taking a country whipping from the Washington defense, Nick Foles threw for 306 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Eagles to victory.
Two of the games biggest highlights involved former Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, who returned to Philadelphia wearing the burgundy & gold. Jackson stirred the pot early by baiting the Eagles into personal foul call and then, in the second half hauled in a 81-yard scoring strike from Kirk Cousins.
However, Jackson’s return took a backseat following a Nick Foles interception that led to a fight on the sideline between the two squads.
As Foles ran near the play, Washington’s Chris Baker hit the Eagles quarterback from behind. Chaos ensued and eventually led to Baker and Philadelphia’s Jason Peters getting ejected from the game.
The Eagles laughed last and loudest though.
The interception was overturned as Foles eventually rose to his feet to save the day for the Eagles again.
