The name of the quarterback has changed, but the turnovers have continued for the Eagles.
Nick Foles was intercepted on third down of his first drive as a starter, which set the Redskins up in good field position that they used to grab a 7-0 lead. Foles tried a pass to tight end Brent Celek over the middle, but Celek couldn’t catch a ball he should have been able to reel in. It caromed to Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall who returned it to the 9-yard line.
It’s the second interception of the year for Foles and the 11th of the season for the Eagles.
UPDATE 1:23 p.m. ET: It happened again. Foles moved the Eagles down the field on the second possession, but got put into a third-and-long thanks to penalties and sailed a pass under pressure that Brandon Meriweather picked off.
