RG3 Returns, Redskins Hold Off Eagles


Share This Story

Patrick McDermott/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) — Robert Griffin III returned and guided the Redskins (9-6) to a 27-20 over the Eagles (4-11) on Sunday.  Griffin III returned after being sidelined last weekend due to a knee injury and tossed two touchdown passes in the victory.

Kai Forbath set an NFL record for consecutive field goals with 17 straight and the Redskins are a win away from a playoff berth.

The Eagles had a chance to send the game into overtime, but Nick Foles threw an illegal forward pass which caused a ten-second clock runoff to end the game when Philadelphia was five yards away from the end zone.

“We’re already onto the next one,” Griffin III said. “You don’t celebrate wins at this point of the season.”

Eagles head coach Andy Reid would not discuss the rumors of him not returning after the season.  The Redskins will host the Cowboys next weekend.
