With the game tied in the fourth quarter, Foles threw a deep pass that Washington’s Bashaud Breeland appeared to intercept. During the return, Baker the Coward crushed an unassuming Foles from behind. That set off a melee that saw Baker the Coward ejected, Peters ejected (which put the offensive line down to Todd Herremans and four guys you’ve never heard of), and Foles looked like he would need a stretcher.

But when the dust cleared, the interception was overturned, Foles was back, and the Eagles marched down the field to take the lead when the gutsy quarterback fired a strike to Jeremy Maclin, making it 34-27.

Malcolm Jenkins made another huge interception on the next Washington series and Cody Parkey converted a 51-yard field goal to give the Birds a 37-27 lead, and the game seemed in hand.

Not so fast, as Roy Helu took a screen pass 55 yards to put Washington back in scoring position. They got into the end zone a few plays later to make it 37-34.

A three-and-out and terrible punt gave Washington the ball in Eagles’ territory, just outside the 40, with about four minutes to go. Kirk Cousins couldn’t move the Washington football team forward, Boykin came up with a great pass breakup, the defense held and the Birds are 3-0.
