‘Skins hold slim lead at the half

The dream is still alive.

The Redskins have responded from an early deficit in Philly, and they currently are halfway to a sixth straight win.  At the half, they lead the Eagles, 13-10.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III, playing two weeks after suffering a Grade 1 sprain to his LCL, has completed eight of 13 passes for 93 yards and a touchdown.

He also has two runs for four total yards.

Ten of the points were the result of Philly turnovers — a fumble and an interception from quarterback Nick Foles.

If the Redskins win today and at home next week against the Cowboys, they’ll win the NFC East, hosting presumably the No. 5 seed in the first round of the postseason — and possibly setting up a showdown between two of the top rookie quarterbacks, Griffin and Seattle’s Russell Wilson.

    Ehh… if the Eagles win, it will just move them down in the draft. Also, I’d rather see the Redskins win the division instead of the Giants or Cowboys.

    Dennis Kelly and King Dunlap are the 2 worst starting tackles in the NFL .The Eagles need to draft a left tackle in the 1st round and a couple more O-linemen after that.

    eaglesfan, you’re right about that. As a longtime suffering redskin fan, it would feel great to stomp the cowgirls.

    King Dunlap is awful…but we have the best left tackle in the league, unfortunately he isn’t healthy. beef up that oline but with peters back we’re set.
