Washington beats Philadelphia, wins the NFC East

Getty Images

Washington has gone from worst to first in the NFC East.

Tonight’s 38-24 win at Philadelphia clinched the division title for Washington, a major triumph for a team that was in last place last year and was expected to be one of the worst in the NFL at the start of the season.

Kirk Cousins had an outstanding game for Washington, throwing for 365 yards and four touchdowns and picking apart Philadelphia’s depleted secondary all night long. Tight end Jordan Reed had another big game, and receiver Pierre Garcon and running back Pierre Thomas were both effective in the passing game.

For the Eagles, it was another lousy game in what has been a lousy season for Chip Kelly’s offense. A DeMarco Murray fumble that DeAngelo Hall picked up and ran for a touchdown pretty much sealed the Eagles’ fate, and it was fitting that a Murray miscue would end the Eagles’ season. Murray has proven to be a disastrous signing for Kelly, who has looked all season like he’s trying to fit a square peg into a round hole with Murray.

Big questions will be raised now about what the future holds in Philadelphia. Will Kelly be back in 2016? Will he retain full personnel control? Will he bring back Sam Bradford? Will he bring back Murray?

In Washington, the question is whether they can do more than just win a bad division. Washington will play a largely meaningless Week 17 game next Sunday, and then host a wild card team in the first round of the playoffs. Washington may very well be an underdog in that wild card game, but for now, they can celebrate a division title in Washington. Not many saw that coming.

    Hmmm Redskins win despite this sites writers picking the Eagles!!!!!

  5. joparks2012 says: Dec 26, 2015 11:51 PM

    How about That Florio! You Like That?

    Probably not and that’s too bad. The Skins were a great story this year.

    I still don’t blame you for not picking us. No rational person would have. The dig is for the incessant negative stories your site pumped out about this team this year including the one in early November that stated the Skins had no chance to win the division.

    HTTR – 2015 NFC East Champions. I honestly can’t believe that is actually true.

  6. jrclark1978 says: Dec 26, 2015 11:52 PM

    Thank you eagles for making this drama-filled, dumpster fire season a reality for all of us to witness. Your precious genius will probably blame the players for this latest train wreck.

  7. despenc925 says: Dec 26, 2015 11:52 PM

    Washington wins the division…but they’ll probably play the Seahawks in the playoffs. so I’m guessing they’ll be one and done??!

  8. arctantheta says: Dec 26, 2015 11:52 PM

    Congratulations are in order. That team has had a lot of injuries this year, and still made something out of nothing. I will be blown away if they beat Seattle or Minny in the playoffs though.

  9. fwippel says: Dec 26, 2015 11:53 PM

    Eagles by 23-the ‘Skins are about to eat it.
    ————————————————————-
    Another excellent prediction by the resident PFT football savant.

    The play before the half was a disaster, but Cousins looked good otherwise and this team might surprise some people in the playoffs.

  14. stoutfiles says: Dec 26, 2015 11:55 PM

    We’re still playing that game where they won’t say the word Redskins? Grow up Florio.

  15. eloso1 says: Dec 26, 2015 11:55 PM

    Pretty awesome to have a home game in January. Definitely not close to the best teams in the NFC but Skins are playing well at the right time.

  16. chris6523 says: Dec 26, 2015 11:56 PM

    Cousins putting up mvp numbers over the last 9 games. 20 tds 3 ints nearly 300 yards per game. Let the story about the 1st half snafu die.

  17. dlr4skins says: Dec 26, 2015 11:56 PM

    NFC EAST CHAMPIONS!

    Who wants some at Fed Ex?

    Even if its only Logical and I, there is no room on the bandwagon……..

    Haters keep hating!

    HTTR!

    REDSKINS! REDSKINS! REDSKINS!

    Thank God… I hope the Giant, and especially the Eagles, and Cowboys fans are seething right now for blowing up their seasons so big saying they were going to be oh so good. Redskins were counted out so bad preseason and now look.

  20. subzero05 says: Dec 26, 2015 11:58 PM

    Philly’s defense played well enough to win that game. Bradford is ridiculously awful. Those wide open Td misses would have me in rage if I was an Eagles fan

  21. ctiggs says: Dec 26, 2015 11:58 PM

    I’ll give it up to logical…..but 5 rings over here

    Good job NBC.

    your primetime devotion to this division has burned the audience week after week.

  24. floridaslonechargersfan says: Dec 27, 2015 12:03 AM

    Don’t the Redskins know they’re doomed to unlimited 4-12 seasons for the name/sarc?

    Good for them. Too bad they have to play Seattle Round one.

  25. theheyseed says: Dec 27, 2015 12:03 AM

    Redskins is the team name, not writing it in a story is pretty bush league reporting.
    Hail to the Redskins

  26. laxcoach37 says: Dec 27, 2015 12:03 AM

    How silly… the Dolphins beat both the Redskins and Eagles and they are laughing stock of the NFL. I wouldn’t get too excited. This is a Tree in the Forest falling. Unless you are the Patriots, Panthers, Seahawks or Cardinals fan… knock it off.

  27. dallassux says: Dec 27, 2015 12:03 AM

    One and done in the playoffs

  28. scoocha says: Dec 27, 2015 12:03 AM

    Washington’s nickname is the Redskins. I don’t think MDS is aware of that fact.

  29. thraiderskin says: Dec 27, 2015 12:04 AM

    Damnit… The only person I knew who called the division was Logical, who the hell let that happen?

  30. kingofthenorth92 says: Dec 27, 2015 12:04 AM

    REDSKINS!!!!

  31. scoocha says: Dec 27, 2015 12:05 AM

    I am genuinely surprised by today’s outcome. I could have sworn that the NFL was going to fix it so the Eagles win and that the Goo Men would have a shot to win the division with Ole Dirty Beckham in Week 17.

  32. nyjfan111 says: Dec 27, 2015 12:05 AM

    Kirk Cousins perhaps made one of the most baffling, head scratching mistakes ever during the last play of the first half. And also finished 31-46 for 365 yards and 4 touchdowns. My brain is so confused about what to think.

  33. jason9696 says: Dec 27, 2015 12:05 AM

    As a Giants fan I’m disappointed but they have nobody to blame but themselves for blowing all of those 4th quarter leads.

    How in the world did the Eagles beat the Patriots 3 weeks ago? They’ve looked awful the last 2 weeks.

  34. theallegedone says: Dec 27, 2015 12:06 AM

    Wow logical. Must be tough winning that GARBAGE division. 1 and done in the playoffs.

  35. rcali says: Dec 27, 2015 12:07 AM

    How about those Redskins, representing our great nations capitol and POTUS!

  36. theseekeroffun says: Dec 27, 2015 12:07 AM

    One and done, without a doubt. Seattle wish crush Washington at home. But hey, at least your front office won’t have the chance to waste a high first round draft pick.

  37. jrossizzle says: Dec 27, 2015 12:08 AM

    Wait… Your song says “Hail to the Redskins”

    So it’s really not about hate..

    Weird. Please inform the media

  38. stroker222 says: Dec 27, 2015 12:10 AM

    Great win on the road by the REDSKINS to clinch the division! Are the Redskins great, not yet, but they only won 7 games over the last 2 seasons and are definitely headed in the right direction now with Scot McCloughan, an improved roster, and a QB they can build around! Keep on hating on this team Florio, I believe you picked them to finish 32nd in the league this year and you’re bent about being so wrong about it! HTTR

  39. fordmandalay says: Dec 27, 2015 12:10 AM

    The best thing about the Skins winning the division; daily hilarity from LogicalVoice. I love his schtick, kills me every time!

    Easy there, guy. You’re 8-7 and just won a terrible division.

  42. jhonnyklassik says: Dec 27, 2015 12:18 AM

    Respect to the skins crazy drama off season didnt back into the playoffs took the division and told the eagles and giants to have fun playing for bragging rights next week. They can complain about your schedule the whole divison played the same teams outside of what 2 or so teams.. skins over came a lot and deserve all credit and respect.

  43. burakuzy6592 says: Dec 27, 2015 12:18 AM

    All of our draft picks and about 55 million or so in cap space, only getting better!!! HTTR

    The Eagles are one of the worst teams in football.
    Clearly, the Pats completely overlooked them a couple of weeks ago.

  48. raaz227httr says: Dec 27, 2015 12:28 AM

    Home record! Looking forward to the first round match up!

  49. theblowtorchreview says: Dec 27, 2015 12:28 AM

    NFC Least

    Means nothing. No matter who Washington plays in round 1 they will be sent home with their tail between their legs.

  50. o0omorriso0o says: Dec 27, 2015 12:28 AM

    Logicalvoice …. redskins just screwed themselfs. Nobody in this division is good. However you can see the boys, giants, and even the eagles bouncing back next year. The redskins however will stay consistently average and get wooped on next year.

    They are not beating Seattle or whoever they play in the playoffs which means they did nothing but…

    1.) Worsen their draft pick
    2.) Have to play a 1st place schedule next year
    3.) Get embaresed on national television
    4.) Whole division gunning for them next year.

    So good luck with that. They just gonna get trounched. Worse team out of the 12 that is in the playoffs. At some point ya gotta look toward your future and redskins decided to blow their load in a year qhen the division was down. OK.

  51. numba1wiscosportsfan says: Dec 27, 2015 12:32 AM

    A couple scrubby teams went at it tonight. We’re all sure of that much.

  55. wdcskins says: Dec 27, 2015 12:44 AM

    The diminutive Mr. Florio was one of those that predicted the Redskins to finish last in the east. I mean, what, with all his playing exp- …no? Well, with his coaching exp- …no? Okay, so what makes the little guy such a trusted prognosticator on such matters? Hello? It’s okay, he can always wring his hands and wail about the name. The Washington Redskins, your 2015 NFC East Champions. Somewhere, Florio cries a single tear.

  56. Bob says: Dec 27, 2015 12:46 AM

    I just love that the Redskins won the division so that the media spends at least another two weeks tripping all over themselves saying “Washington” to try avoiding calling the team the “Redskins.”

  57. 76ersDoubleTank says: Dec 27, 2015 12:54 AM

    I think Washington can win a playoff game, they are hitting their stride at the right time.

    And the NFC East talk needs to stop. The AFC South is the worst division in the NFL. The Texans are 7-7 despite getting to play Jacksonville and Tennessee twice a year.

    The fact that the media never seems to recognize this or elaborate on it just speaks to the tradition of the NFC East. Hopefully, it can get back on track in the next few years.

    Congrats to the Redskins. They kicked my Eagles all over the place tonight.

  58. badbabyjane says: Dec 27, 2015 12:56 AM

    Wow Skin fans, WOW! Winning the beyond terrible NFC East has you this bonkers?????? Act like you’ve been there please!

  59. skinsprinting says: Dec 27, 2015 12:58 AM

    Say what you will about the NFC East, but the Redskins earned the division by winning games at the end of the season that they had to win by playing their best football.

    No, I do not think they will go very far in the playoffs but who even thought they would be in the playoffs?

  60. gbanman says: Dec 27, 2015 12:58 AM

    I was at this game as a HUGE Skins fan and I will say that Philly fans know…. The Eagles lack chemistry/unity and had its legs taken out from them by a head coach that doesn’t get it. He’s the coach version of RG3.. He thinks everything comes so easily. Life doesn’t work like that..The NFL doesn’t work like that. But as a skins fan… I LIKe THAT!!!!

  61. baddegg says: Dec 27, 2015 1:07 AM

    I’m laughing at all the “bad division” posts…haters gonna hate.

    Media please continue to pick against Washington every game…we love it.

    I really am delighted reading these posts about how bad the division is…I can just see the haters getting all angry and frustrated that Washington is winning! 🙂

  62. nottl1 says: Dec 27, 2015 1:07 AM

    So are you saying they shouldn’t accept the playoff berth because their division is substandard?

    Honestly, who cares if they lose their first playoff game. They weren’t supposed to be there anyway. That’s what makes it such a great story.

    Just about every talking head on each network and paper picked the skins as the worse team in the league. Not to mention that the skins had so many injuries this year that they used a converted wr at cb. And yes the NFC East was not all that good and they may get blown out in the 1st round of the playoffs but no one can deny that this team played with heart and overcame it all to win the division so hate all you want call them all the names you want but when the playoffs start DC will be in it and we like that. HTTR. Haters

    In August, we all thought they’d win 6-8 games at best. They have. Regardless of what happens next, they’re making progress. Yes, they’ll be underdogs in 2 weeks, but they’ve already surpassed expectations. So quit hating!

    “Washington may very well be an underdog in that wild card game, but for now, they can celebrate a division title in Washington. Not many saw that coming.”

    What I love about this is Chip Kelly eating crow. All his preaching, all his derogatory remarks about how he knows stuff better than any NFL coach, all came crashing down. I hope he gets fired and goes where he’d look to be a natural: a hog farm in Kentucky.

  87. jimmysee says: Dec 27, 2015 4:08 AM

    It all started when the obstinate fool, Dan Snyder, finally stepped out of the way and allowed the professional staff to remove RGIII from the starting QB slot.

    Former Spartan, Kirk Cousins, who languished for years on the back bench, has proven himself up to the task.

    Cousins, like Aaron Rodgers, was given time to watch, learn, practice, improve.

    QBs, like fine wine, get better after a few years on the shelf.

  88. daytontriangles says: Dec 27, 2015 4:31 AM

    Well done Redskins!

    Now how about putting RG3 back in as the starter for the playoffs? I recall logicalvoicepft saying he’s the greatest QB of all time!

    Chip Kelly is awful. To everyone wanting him back for 2016 look to this same thing next year. He’s not a pro coach.

  95. thereisnogodbiblethumpersaregutlessturds says: Dec 27, 2015 6:42 AM

    Logical,

    Saying that you are the “best” of the NFC East right now is kind of like saying you are the “most talented” Spice Girl.

    And since this isn’t a strike year, there is no way that the Redskins get another one of their phony Super Bowl “rings”.

    MDS and Florio–neither of you picked my REDSKINS to win last night. Ha! Also, the team name is REDSKINS. Who cares if they lose their first playoff game? No one (including myself) expected them to win more than four games, much less the division. Scot and Jay are turning my team around–that’s what matters this season. I’m so proud of Kirk for not letting his mistake at the end of the second quarter keep him from playing great in the second half. All athletes make mistakes. It’s what they do afterwards that often shows true character. Why are you pointing out how much he has improved and what a great guy he is? Isn’t that what really matters? Congratulations to my wonderful REDSKINS!!!!

    The Redskins can be thankful Romo got hurt. Otherwise the Cowboys would have locked up the division a month ago.

    They are not beating Seattle or whoever they play in the playoffs which means they did nothing but…

    1.) Worsen their draft pick
    2.) Have to play a 1st place schedule next year
    3.) Get embaresed on national television
    4.) Whole division gunning for them next year.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    You misspelled ’embarrassed’. How embarrassing, for a hate post.

    Congrats redskins. You play the 25th easiest schedule in the nfl; your losses are embarrassing and your wins are mediocre. In fact, you have yet to beat a winning team. But don’t fret, upper management will do their best sign this mediocre team to long term deals, ensuring nothing more than 8-8 for the foreseeable future. I’m sure cousins will get 70 million, despite the fact that up to 5 games ago he was considered the worst turnover machine in the league.

    Its like the posters on here have become first or second year football watchers. Acting like its a bad thing to make the playoffs. Pathetic.

    Dear Logical…

    It’s always better to make the playoffs because

    1.) You can’t win it unless your in it. “We play to Win the Game!
    2.) Predicting next year’s schedule’s toughness is close to impossible. (ebb and flow)
    3.) Redskins have drafted high in the past (RGIII) how good did that work out? Pats, Seahawks, and Cardinals are good teams who just draft well and they pick late. I’ll take my chances with an educated draft room.
    4.) So, the other teams in the division typically don’t…gun for their division rivals? Hmmm.

    So, thanks for the well wishes. I hope your team gets back to the post season someday. In the meantime…enjoy the Skins v. Seattle or Minnesota.

    But we play i n the WEAKEST division in football….
    Get real, only 3 of our 8 wins have come in the division. Which means we beat five teams from divions of superior quality. Two thirds of the league are at or worse than the 8-7 record we currently hold. Its one thing to hate, but to refuse to recognize the truth just speaks volumes about ones intelligence.

    1st things 1st. Congrats to Washington. You Played the best in this dredge of a division. I am an Eagles fan, but not one who drinks green Kool-ade. Before this season started, all praise was being heaped on TWO teams in this division. We know who the are. But me? I see two teams with many flaws and i actually picked NY to win it. Never once did I think Washington could win, until the last couple weeks. And all it took was a QB change. Now, here is where you Washington fans get butt hurt: You know the team isn’t good enough to make a run. You know that. You know that in another 3 weeks your team will be home, looking at next year. And thats because you desperately wanted to win this wretched division. And so you get a worse draft pick AND a harder schedule. Thanks for stepping up and taking credit as winner of the NFC Least.

    Looking like the Seahawks & Redskins will be meeting in the playoffs for the fourth time in the past decade. If that holds, Seattle will likely be favored to bounce Washington for the fourth straight time, but this one makes me nervous.

    The Seahawks have blown 4th quarter leads to the Packers, Panthers & Cardinals this season (the latter 2 at home), but I’m actually more confident that the Seahawks will win the rematch against any of those teams than I am for a road game against Cousins & the ‘Skins, who like the Seahawks are peaking at the right time, and who have a great underrated tight end, a position that Seattle has been particularly vulnerable to.

    The Seahawks/Cards game next week should basically be a glorified preseason game and shouldn’t be used as any kind of barometer of where either team is at. We talkin’ about practice.

    Skins won a mediocre division? Guess what, most of the divisions are mediocre lol. The NFC west has 2 good teams. The NFC south has one good team. The NFC north has two pretty decent teams, but the Pack are not the dominant force people make them out to be. The AFC east has one and a half good teams. The AFC west has one two good teams with one on the verge of collapse. The AFC south is hot garbage with maybe one solid team. The AFC north has two teams worth a crap.

    So what is all this talk concerning the “bad” NFC east? Your division isn’t much to brag about, whichever division that is, and frankly the NFL as a whole has put out a mediocre at best product this year. Stop making excuses for why your team is butt cheeks or why the Skins are average at best. Bottom line wins are wins, losses are losses, and sour grapes taste even more sour when you’re blinded by misguided hate. It’s not our fault the Skins felt their backs against the wall and fought their way out. Show some respect or go to your team’s articles and figure out something witty to say.

    Congrats Skins. But you’re going to get swept by Dallas this year.

    Harry Reid is not rejoicing. I guess the name-haters have to shut up for at least a couple of weeks. Come on, Mike: can’t you say Redskins? It is easier to say than for Obama to say ‘Islamic terrorism.’ You and Phil Simms should practice in front of a mirror with nobody around to see the initial contortions.

    Somebody had to win this #embarrassment of a division…congrats Washington fan…this your day to make fools of yourself (more so than usual)

    I’ll give it up to logical…..but 5 rings over here
    ***********************************
    But the REDSKINS have righted the ship, in a big way. Santa Clara’s only ring in the last 20 years is a giant ring around the toilet bowl, and there’s NO sign of any change in the near future, nor the distant future, unless the Yorks sell the team – and that ain’t happening. Much respect for Cousins and the entire team for staying together this year. Impressive performance.

    The city of Washington DC didn’t win anything, the Redskins won the NFC East.

    HTTR!

  115. juliusanonymous says: Dec 27, 2015 1:26 PM

    And now the Seahawks, once again, will beatdown the Skins in the playoffs. For the fourth straight time. LOL

  116. princessmorbucks says: Dec 27, 2015 7:22 PM

    For all the haters claiming the Redskins will be “one and done”, ever heard of “Any Given Sunday”? Yeah, that’s right, nothing is a lock in the NFL. Bring on the Seahawks. #HTTR

  117. timebandit24 says: Dec 27, 2015 11:49 PM

    Princessmorbucks….did you just compare real life football to a movie about a petulant quarterback and scarface??

  118. princessmorbucks says: Dec 28, 2015 2:01 PM

    Ahhhh, silly little timebandit24. You do understand that it was a phrase before it was a movie? I guess you don’t. Then this should break it down for you:

    Former NFL Commissioner Bert Bell (’46-’59) was known to have said famously “on any given Sunday, any team in the NFL can beat any other team.”
