Redskins Vs Eagles: Eagles In Early 14-0 Hole

The Eagles defense is off to an absolutely terrible start today as they’ve left the birds in a 14-0 hole to start.

Overall the Redskins have been running the ball all over the Eagles and the first score reflected that. Quintin Mikell was flagged for a 15 yard penalty after dragging down Clinton Portis with a horse collar tackle. A few plays later Ryan Torain ran over Mikell for a TD.

On the Redskins next drive Donovan McNabb had two of his TEs break wide open into the Eagles secondary. The first one he overthrew. The second, he hit Chris Cooley for a 31 yard TD.
