Washington Redskins vs Philadelphia Eagles: Live Stream, Preview, Updates


eaglesThe Washington Redskins will start 2012 fourth-round pick Kirk cousins at quarterback this week against the Philadelphia Eagles who are trying to start the season 3-0 for the first time since 2004.

Robert Griffin III is out indefinitely after dislocating his ankle in last week’s 41-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson also left the game with a sprained shoulder but expects to play against his old team on Sunday.

“I felt I put it out on the line for them when I played there and I’ve done what I’ve done to help that organization win games, so as far as if they congratulate me, if they boo me — whatever the case may be — I’m ready for whatever it is,” Jackson told the team’s official website. “If it’s all on me, I’m playing. I don’t plan on missing this game.”

Cousins went 22 of 33 for 250 yards with two touchdowns despite being without Jackson and tight end Jordan Reed, who missed the game with a hamstring injury and has yet to return to practice.

“We were trying not to make this about Robert when Robert was the quarterback,” Gruden said. “We’re going to try not to make this about Kirk now that Kirk’s the quarterback. We’ve got to make this about the Redskins moving forward.”

The Eagles escaped with a 30-27 when last week in Indianapolis in head coach Chip Kelly, while happy with the 2-0 start to the season thinks the Eagles can do better.

“No one should be patting themselves on the back anywhere,” said coach Chip Kelly, whose team has totaled six first-half points. “We’re fortunate to be 2-0. We’ve done a great job of coming back in both games, but there is a lot of work in every aspect of the game that we need to work on. So that’s the great thing about this group, they understand that.”

Philadelphia won both meetings a season ago with LeSean McCoy running for 261 yards and three scores.

This year the Redskins will have to concern themselves with off-season acquisition Darren Sproles. For the second straight week, he ran for a TD and averaged 6.5 yards per carry.
