— LeSean McCoy ran for 126 yards and a touchdown and safety Kurt Coleman victimized Rex Grossman with three interceptions as the Eagles snapped a four-game losing streak with a 20-13 victory over the Washington Redskins today.
McCoy, who became the first player in franchise history to open the season with touchdowns in six straight games, ran for 20 yards and a crucial first down on the Eagles' final series to help preserve the win over the NFC East rivals.
His strong running and a defense that played its best overall game of the season helped make up for an uneven passing day by Michael Vick (18 for 31, 237 yards, one TD, one interception).
Vick was forced out of the game briefly, before his replacement, Vince Young, tossed an interception in the third quarter. But Coleman came up with his second interception right after that to give the momentum right back to the Eagles.
Nate Allen added an interception for the Eagles, who limited the Redskins to 287 yards and just one conversion in 10 third-down attempts.
John Beck replaced Grossman in the fourth quarter and rallied his team for a touchdown, but the Eagles were able to run out the clock by running for two first downs behind a tattered offensive line that was down to its last two healthy tackles, Todd Herremans and Winston Justice.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
