Two seasons into head coach Chip Kelly’s tenure in Philadelphia, the Eagles haven’t missed a beat with their fast-paced offense. Behind quarterback Nick Foles, the Eagles are 2-0 to start the season and face a 1-1 Washington Redskins team coming off a dominant victory last Sunday. The Redskins defense could pose a particular challenge, providing plenty of reason to watch the Redskins Eagles game live today.
Foles has the Eagles on a fast-track pace once again, and through two weeks has guided Philadelphia to some nice stats. The Eagles 32 points-per-game average ranks second in the league, as do their 439 yards/game average and 303 passing yards/game average. For the season Foles has completed 48 of 82 passes for 653 yards.
Last week Foles tossed a tying touchdown pass to with 3:25 to go, then pushed the Eagles downfield for a 36-yard field goal as time expired that beat the Indianapolis Colts 30-27 on Monday Night. Running back Darren Sproles was one of Foles’ top receivers, having seven receptions for 152 yards to go with one rushing touchdown.
The Eagles enter today’s Redskins game with a 2-0 record and having won the past two times the Eagles and Redskins have met. Both of those games have been within a touchdown though, and the Redskins today will throw one of the league’s toughest defenses against Chip Kelly’s offense.
Today marks the first full game Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (RG3) will miss with injury. RG3 dislocated his left ankle Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. His replacement, Kirk Cousins, will get the start in today’s Eagles game.
Cousins dominated in last Sunday’s game, guiding the Redskins to a 41-10 victory behind his 22-of-33 performance for 250 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. Still, the Redskins will likely put their hope in their top-ranked defense today. The Redskins have 10 sacks through the first two games of the season and have an outstanding linebacker corps.
