The Eagles and Redskins appear to be meeting this week heading in opposite directions. While it seems the Eagles may have started to find a little bit of a groove, the Redskins continue to stumble their way through the season and are in real danger of not being able to defend their NFC East crown.
The Minnesota Vikings found a way to stop Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins, showing late resolve after a series of final-minute collapses.

The Eagles put up 26 of their 33 points in the first half against the Redskins as Chip Kelly’s fast-paced offense operated with impressive efficiency.
