Redskins Fall to Eagles, Final Score 24-16. A Look at the Stats and Recap

New, comments

After getting routed 24-0 going into the fourth quarter, the Redskins score twice to make it a one possession game but fell short in the last seconds with a terrible interception.

The Redskins managed to do what they do best, get the fans' hopes up they'd win and lose in crushing fashion. Everything was on display that Skins fans are used to: bad tackling, penalties, poor special teams, solid Alfred Morris rushing, and inconsistent passing.

The Redskins had a chance to tie the game late, but on a pass rush, RGIII just threw the ball up in the air, which didn't come close to clearing the end zone, and it was picked off to end the game.

Looking at these stats via, if one ignores the score, it's hard to tell which team won this game. Once again the Redskins dominated the time of possession clock, but RGIII overthrew open WRs and on other plays WRs dropped balls to keep drives going. It's beyond frustrating and I don't know where to go from here. With the Redskins at 3-7 and 1-6 in conference, it's time to start the draft profiles.

Both Leonard Hankerson and Jordan Reed left the game with injuries. Stay tuned for updates.
