Players of the Game: Philadelphia Eagles I
Following the 20-12 defeat of the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football, theHogs.net is here to list the top players of the game for the Washington Redskins.
Offense: Jason Campbell
16/29, 209 yards, 1 passing touchdown, 1 interception,
6 rushes, 39 yards
Campbell started out shaky, struggling to find a way to get the ball in the endzone and throwing his third interception of the year. Despite one delay of game penalty and two false start penalties on Jason Fabini, Campbell made up for an abysmal ending to the second quarter with a 16-yard touchdown pass to tight end Chris Cooley to put the Redskins up 10-6 at halftime. As the game progressed, he began to create a rhythm for the offense and even took the game into his own hands, using his scrambling ability to put the team in scoring position. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Campbell’s repertoire was his poise and calm in such a hostile environment.
Defense: Rocky McIntosh
9 tackles, 1 sack
Rocky continues to show improvement, pressuring Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb throughout the night and leading the team in tackles. He also sacked McNabb for a loss of four yards during a third down play in the second quarter, forcing the Eagles to punt. As a unit, the defense was stingy, allowing zero touchdowns and only allowing four of Philadelphia’s 11 offensive drives to go for 32 yards or more.
Special Teams: Rock Cartwright
5 kickoff returns for 130 yards.
Cartwright’s kickoff returns played a major role in the Redskins winning the field position battle on offense. Washington’s average starting field position was at the 30-yard line as opposed to Philadelphia beginning on the 25-yard line. Following Rock’s kickoff returns, the Redskins started out no worse than their own 25-yard line.
