Eagles kick off season in Washington against Redskins

Kirk Cousins says God told him not to sign long-term deal with Redskins

The Eagles defeated the Redskins with a final score of 30-17.

There was a drive-ending interception by Jalen Mills when the Redskins had driven into the red zone and were threatening to reclaim the lead.

Stafford High School graduates and current Eagles teammates Torrey Smith and Dexter McDougle didn't register much of an impact in making their return to the D.C. area.

The offense is not having a good day so far with Cousins under a lot of pressure, WR Terrelle Pryor dropping a couple of passes and the Eagles stout defensive front holding Kelley to a minimum of running yards.

The quarterback didn't get much help from the rushing game. "I've always respected Coach (Jim) Schwartz and their defense and the way they come after you". Time was dwindling for the Redskins; the five-game winning streak Washington held against Philadelphia was soon to be over.

Stepping Up - Ryan Kerrigan is the answer to a future trivia question: Who scored Washington's first touchdown in the 2017 season? Opponents converted 47 percent of their attempts. With 16 games past year, I was healthy. "We just have to put it all together". This fourth-quarter throw, which ultimately decided the game, was particularly disheartening... He was the top receiver in the draft, we thought. If the running game struggles, then expect the offense to struggle as well. Redskins lead series, 85-73-5.

But the second-year passer from North Dakota State somehow shed two tackles before scaling the pocket, squaring his shoulders and locating receiver Nelson Agholar all alone at Washington's 20-yard line.

No injuries reported for Washington.

Philadelphia is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in September while the over is 8-1 in their last 9 division matchups. Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was brought in to be the team's number one receiver. When you don't run the ball for a long period of time, it's not easy to dial it up and have success. On special teams, even the reliable Jamison Crowder muffed a punt. After LeGarrette Blount ran for a first down, Wentz fired a pass to Zach Ertz for 14 yards to the 14.

The AO1 (Audience of One) hashtag used in the tweet refers to Wentz's AO1 Foundation, which was established this year with the mission to "demonstrate the love of God by providing opportunities and support for the less fortunate and those in need".

DOUG'S DECISIONS: Pederson had a so-so year as a first-time head coach in 2016. The former didn't drop passes, and the latter would catch the deep ones.

The Philadelphia Eagles will play the Washington Redskins in one of the NFL Opening games on Sunday, start time at 1:00 PM ET, at FedExField, Maryland. The Agholor touchdown was on third-and-12.

You can listen to the Redskins broadcast on Redskins Radio Network with Larry Michael, Sonny Jurgenson, Chris Cooley and Rick "Doc" Walker on the call. "It wasn't good enough, obviously". On third and 10 at the Eagles 39, Cousins avoided a sure sack and fired to Brian Quick for 11 yards to convert. On defense, the Redskins shelled out big money to Josh Norman to be a stopper at cornerback.

Graham notched another sack on Cousins once Washington got the ball back.

Cousins finished 23 of 40 for 240 yards with one touchdown pass to go with the interception and fumbles. You know, sometimes, it looks like a sack is coming and he can get out under it and make plays.
