It Was Over When:
DeSean Jackson ran the game’s fourth play from scrimmage in for a touchdown. Could a game really be over that early? It seemed to be – the Redskins never really did get all the way back. The game was just two minutes old and yet the wind had been completely sucked from the Redskins’ (and their fans) sails.
Antwaan Randle El’s fumbled punt return. It sucked the life out of the burgundy and gold at the only time in the game that they had built some positive momentum.
13 points for the Eagles, that came off of Redskin turnovers.
