Eagles at Redskins 3rd quarter

Redskins 21 Eagles 14

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles trail the Redskins 21-14 in a game that shouldn’t be this close, and yet should be closer if not for a third down Fletcher Cox penalty.

The Eagles offense can’t get anything going, though for the 2nd quarter it wasn’t entirely their fault:

Instead the Eagles scored on a Wendell Smallwood kick return touchdown

And then on a Malcolm Jenkins interception returned for a touchdown.

This is like a Chip Kelly game: special teams and defensive scores, an offense barely seeing the field, and losing to the Redskins.

Let’s hope the Eagles keep up their second half improvements.
