After a tough divisional loss against the Giants last week, the Redskins came prepared against the Eagles.

Alfred Morris rushed for only 62 yards off of 17 carries, Kirk Cousins completed 31 passes of 46 attempts for 290 yards and a TD pass. The Redskins were up at halftime, 13-0. The Eagles tried coming back after the half, scoring 3 TDs. The Redskins were trailing 16-20 with the clock winding down in the 4th quarter. It was looking like they might not make it.

With 6:05 left on the clock, the Redskins manage to create a 95 yard drive for a TD led by Kirk Cousins. With that last minute TD pass from Kirk Cousins to his wide receiver Pierre Garcon, the Redskins came out with a huge 23-20 divisional victory against the Eagles making their record now 2-2.

Next stop? The Atlanta Falcons who remain undefeated(4-0).
