Eagles adjustments helped vs. Redskins ground game | Philadelphia Inquirer | 10/17/2011
After being gashed by what linebacker Brian Rolle described as a series of "butt-kickings" on the ground, the Eagles adjusted their approach to their defensive front Sunday.

On Sunday, Juan Castillo’s defense held the ‘Skins to 42-total yards rushing (with 14 coming from backup QB John Beck). A big step for a unit that has been under fire all week with talk of consultants, job security, etc. They played hard.
