Griffin III-Robinson Burn Eagles Defense

Down but not quite out. Locate your burner, see him sprint past the coverage and hit him for a spectacular touchdown to pull this game to one possession.

Having yet to explode the top off the Eagles’ defense, quarterback Robert Griffin III connected with third-year receiver Aldrick Robinson on a play that silenced the Philly crowd.

After Griffin III flew into the endzone (what was up with that Griffin III “Greatest Hits” segment on the telecast?) for the two-point conversion, this game is down to only eight.

Darrel Young Showing Off His Jets

Call him Mr. Versatility.

Always a fantastic lead blocker for the likes of Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris and Roy Helu Jr., fullback Darrel Young proved his worth in the short-yardage game two weeks ago with three touchdown runs.

This week, he showed off some surprisingly shifty moves on a career-long 62-yard touchdown reception to put the Redskins within two possessions after Griffin III found a wide-open Nick Williams for the two-point conversion.

Fourth Quarter Conclusions: #WASvsPHI

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 3:27 pm

(AP)

The football floated in the air tilting up at a weak 45 degree angle, just waiting to be picked off.

When Brandon Boykin intercepted Robert Griffin III’s final errant attempt and stomped both feet in bounds in the last minute of play, he ended a dominant performance by the Eagles that the Redskins came close to rewriting with a defiant fourth quarter.

For the second week in a row, Washington lost its chance to force a tie with a broken play in the end zone.

Nick Foles threw effectively with 298 yards passing, but slowly dazzled on the ground. He rushed for 47 yards and a touchdown, making mostly wise decisions with the zone-read.

In what’s becoming a familiar trope, Washington played winning football in spots, but folded on the doorstep of extending the game.

Fourth quarter high: Darrel Young’s 62-yard touchdown catch and the ensuring two-point conversion that eliminated the possibility of a shutout.

Fourth quarter low: Brandon Boykin’s end zone interception sealing Philadelphia’s first home win in the last 11 games at Lincoln Financial Field.

Third quarter thoughts: As a ball that sailed past the outstretched digits of Santana Moss illustrated, the Redskins simply cannot get in synch. The Philadelphia Eagles have set up shop in Washington’s backfield and aren’t going anywhere.

While the Redskins have shown progress on defense, forcing two straight three-and-outs, the offense hasn’t been able to build momentum all day.

At the beginning of the fourth quarter, Washington has yet to score a point.

Third quarter high: Ryan Kerrigan drops Bryce Brown behind the line for no gain on a third down.

Third quarter low: Nick Foles goes 6-for-7 on the opening drive of the half. LeSean McCoy finishes it with a 1-yard touchdown.

Follow along with the live blog in the fourth quarter below.

Third Quarter Thoughts: #WASvsPHI

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 2:45 pm

(AP)

(AP)

Almost every ugly facet of the Redskins’ 3-6 season to date has been an issue Sunday at Philadelphia. The only reason I say “almost” is because the Eagles haven’t really hurt Washington with the return game.

Facing a three possession hole, the proposition of a season-saving win looks grim.

An opportunity at the goal line was squandered by a turnover. The Eagles front four amassed three sacks and wreaked havoc on the run game with tackles for a loss. When the Redskins did get Morris moving, they failed to take advantage of the play-action game.

Nick Foles has been unmolested in the pocket, hitting nine of 15 passes for 217 yards.

On the plus side, Griffin III and Morris have already combined for 125 yards rushing. LeSean McCoy is questionable to return with an injury.

Second quarter high: Alfred Morris appears to take over with 41 yards on four straight carries.

Second quarter low: Facing 2nd and Goal at the 5-yard line, Robert Griffin III gets drilled by Connor Barwin and coughs up the football. The Eagles protect their two-touchdown lead.

Follow the live blog below to see if the Redskins can come back in the second half.

Second Quarter Summary: #WASvsPHI

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 1:45 pm

(AP)

It was an Eagles quarterback, not Michael Vick, and not Robert Griffin III, that did the most damage in the read-option game in the first quarter. Nick Foles called his own number on a 4-yard touchdown run two plays after LeSean McCoy showed linebackers can’t cover him. McCoy hasn’t run for much, but he’s proved to be a threat in the passing game.

The first two drives of the game were typical of the NFC East. Both teams squandered big touchdown opportunities. Griffin III missed a wide open Logan Paulsen by a wide swath of green on what could have been a touchdown pass. Riley Cooper couldn’t track a ball in the air with nothing but open field in front of him.

I sympathize with E.J. Biggers. The corner was called for unnecessary roughness on a helmet-to-helmet hit, but to me it looked like he led with the shoulder and banged melons on the aftershock. The margin for error on those penalties is miniscule.

First quarter high: Robert Griffin III leaving defenders in his wake and giving Patrick Chung a taste of his heel on a 23-yard run.

First quarter low: Nick Foles whirling into the end zone for Philly’s first score.

At the end of the quarter, Philadelphia was riding LeSean McCoy on a drive to extend it’s seven-point lead. Follow the action in the live blog of the second quarter below. Read more »

First Quarter Happenings: #WASvsPHI

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 12:57 pm

The Redskins have one loss left. Maybe two. Okay, the NFC East is really bad. Maybe three.

In any case, nothing mathematically final will happen today, but the outcome of an away tilt in Philadelphia will be the strongest indicator of Washington’s postseason potential. By now you know the legend of 3-6. The Redskins have played poorly enough to put their backs against the wall. Sunday could be a last shot at redemption, or it could be one more case of what could have been.

Philadelphia has a different quarterback, but its most important cog remains the same. I don’t think I’m going out on a limb saying LeSean McCoy is the most elusive runner in the NFL. DeSean can Jackson can take the top off a defense.

Alfred Morris has been running better every week. If the Eagles are to stop him, sideline-to-sideline linebacker DeMeco Ryans will be key.

Is today the start of another miraculous streak, or is it one more nail in the coffin? Follow the first quarter in the live blog below. Read more »

VOTE: Keys To Punishing Philadelphia

Nick Foles has been playing lights out, but he’s not exactly Houdini in the pocket. If Brian Orakpo and crew can settle into Philadephia’s backfield, the Eagles will draw boos from the home crowd.

What do you think are the keys to grounding the Eagles? Read more »

The forecast in Philadelphia calls for a shower of boos and 100 percent chance of obnoxious verbiage in the bleachers.

At least the field should be dry. It shouldn’t be too cold either.
