Eagles hanging around despite offensive struggles

The Redskins have a 21-14 halftime lead on the Eagles, but they believe it should be more.

The Eagles have been awful offensively but have scored on an 86-yard kickoff return by Wendell Smallwood and a 64-yard interception return by Malcolm Jenkins.

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has thrown for 159 yards and two touchdown passes. The Eagles have 42 total yards.

The Redskins took the lead late in the first half on a 1-yard touchdown run by Matt Jones, who’s sharing carries with Robert Kelley.

The Redskins’ final drive of the half was extended by a roughing the passer penalty on Fletcher Cox, who hit Cousins helmet to helmet on a third down play in the red zone.

    This game should not be close at all. Mistakes by the Redskins is the ONLY reason the Eagles are still in this game. Un-frickin-believable!

    Carson Wentz has already replaced his jersey once…let’s see if we can’t get him to replace another before it’s all said and done…

    You Redskins fans make me giggle. You don’t win this game without the referees. Another 14 penalties. Thanks Obama.

    What did you expect from a QB not talented enough or man enough to play DI football anyway? He’d be in over his head against SEC or Big 10 competition!
