Redskins Ground Eagles In Philadelphia, 20-12

Marcus Washington gets to Donovan McNabb 

The Redskins used a blend of balanced offense and stingy defense to ground the Philadelphia Eagles 20-12 in the “City of Brotherly Love” last night.  Running back Clinton Portis ran for a touchdown in the fourth quarter and Washington’s defense turned away the Eagles inside the 10-yard line in the waning minutes at Lincoln Financial Field.  Quarterback Jason Campbell hit on 16-of-29 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown.  He also was picked off once as Washington wins two in a row out of the gate for the fifth time in coach Joe Gibbs’ career.  The “Burgundy and Gold” is savoring its third win in the last 12 meetings with Philly, an NFC East rival. 

Portis had 69 yards on the ground while Santana Moss caught six balls for 89 yards through the air for the Redskins.  For the Eagles, Donovan  McNabb played his first game that counts at home since last November when he ripped his right ACL.  The veteran signal-caller connected on 28-of-46 passes for 240 yards.  Philadelphia is one of 10 teams in the NFL to drop its first two games of 2007.  David Akers kicked four field goals for the Eagles.  Brian Westbrook had 17 carries for 96 yards while catching eight balls for another 66 for the Birds.  The Redskins now come home to host the winless New York Giants Sunday afternoon at FedEx Field in Landover.
