Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins: Full Report Card Grades for Philly

If you only caught the final score from the Philadelphia Eagles’ 33-27 victory over the Washington Redskins, you could be led to believe it was a close game. Well, it really wasn’t.

Chip Kelly admitted during his postgame press conference that the Birds may have taken their foot off the gas pedal once they were ahead, 33-7, early in the third quarter. After the Redskins nearly came back—and actually would have had a chance to win if they only recovered an onside kick—it’s a mistake I doubt Kelly will make again anytime soon.

So while this wasn’t the blowout it appeared it was going to be at one point, a lot of the blame probably rests with strategy. The Eagles flat-out dominated Washington for large portions of the action, which you’ll see play out in the grades.

Great win for the Birds in Kelly’s debut, and if they get anywhere near this level of production from most of these positions, this team has a chance to go a lot farther than the prognosticators thought.
