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.
