Troy’s Take: Redskins- Eagles Week 3

Redskins- Eagles Observations

Final: Redskins (1-2) 34 Eagles (3-0) 37

  • Just another game where the special teams cost the Redskins
  • Gave up a kickoff return for a touchdown and Kai Forbath missed a chip shot
  • This was the best I’ve ever seen any Redskins offense play in back-to-back games, had 511 total yards.
  • Credit to Kirk Cousins had a few misses in the second half but can’t put the loss on him, threw for 427 yards, three touchdowns and one interception
  • Loved L-O-V-E-D how Jay Gruden called the game… did a good job of getting the star receivers involved DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon both had over 115 receiving yards
  • Run game was ok, managed only three yards per carry but it did keep the Eagles defense honest enough so that the play action game was effective
  • Wanted to also mention this, Alfred Morris is my guy but I wish he would take better care of the football, didn’t lose a fumble against Philly but I do get scared when he runs
  • Niles Paul (6 catches for 68 yards) has been balling ever since I ripped him after week one
  • Moving on to the defense, I thought the run defense was fantastic: only allowed 54 yards on 25 carries
  • Did a good job of getting to Nick Foles early and often was surprised at Foles’ toughness
  • Two minute drive by the Eagles was a killer, outplayed them in the first half but still trailed by one at halftime
  • Second half defense was much better
  • Another one of those “a play here, a play there” the game might have been different type deals, once again special teams and penalties (131 penalty yards) were a killer

MVP: DeSean Jackson (5 catches for 117 yards and one touchdown…. Oh and an awesome celebration


Least Valuable Player(s): The whole special teams unit


Offense- A

Defense- C+

Special Teams- F
