Redskins Turn Their Attention To The Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles hosted the Washington Redskins in Week 11 of the 2013 season. Here are the gameday highlights.

With today's 2014 FedExField opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars now in the past, the Washington Redskins turn their attention to divisional play for the first time this season.

The Redskins next Sunday travel to take on the Philadelphia Eagles for a 1 p.m. kickoff at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles are 1-0 so far this season, and take on the Indianapolis Colts tomorrow night for a Monday Night Football showdown at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Philadelphia is coming off its first divisional title since the 2010 season. The Eagles finished 10-6 last season and lost to the New Orleans Stains 26-24 in the opening round of the 2013 playoffs.

The Eagles are led by second-year head coach Chip Kelly. Last season, Kelly became the second head coach in league history to win a divisional title in his first season in the NFL. Known for instilling a quick offensive pace, Kelly's Eagles set several team records in 2013, including points scored (442), total net yards (6,676), touchdowns (53), passing yards (4,406) and fewest turnovers (19).

The Eagles also set an NFL record with 99 plays of 20-plus yards, and became the first team since the 1991 Buffalo Bills to lead the league in rushing while ranking last in time of possession.

The Eagles had five Pro Bowl selections last season: quarterback Nick Foles (who was named offensive MVP of the game), wide receiver DeSean Jackson (now with the Redskins), running back LeSean McCoy, guard Evan Mathis and tackle Jason Peters.

The Redskins went 0-2 against the Eagles last season, losing 33-27 in Week 1 and 24-16 in Week 11.

The Eagles' last game was a 34-17 victory over the Jaguars Sept. 7 at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles overcame a 17-point halftime deficit to score 34 straight points to take down the visiting Jaguars.

Foles completed 27-of-45 passes for 322 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He was sacked five times. LeSean McCoy ran 21 times for 74 yards, while receiver Jeremy Maclin hauled in four receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown.

Defensively, Mychal Kendricks and Fletcher Cox led the way with six tackles apiece. Kendricks also added a sack and a pass defensed, while Cox scored a touchdown on a fumble recovery.

The Redskins have an all-time record of 81-72-5 against the Eagles, including the postseason. Washington's 81 combined wins against the Eagles are its most against any opponent.

The Redskins are 40-37-2 against the Eagles all-time in Philadelphia, including postseason play.
