RG3 Leads Redskins Over Eagles 27-20

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Robert Griffin III threw two touchdown passes in his first game back from a knee injury, Kai Forbath set the NFL record for consecutive field goals to begin a career and the Washington Redskins held on to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 Sunday for their sixth straight win.

Nick Foles drove the Eagles to the Redskins 5 before his intentional grounding penalty ended the game.

The Redskins (9-6) can clinch the NFC East with a victory over Dallas at home next Sunday. They haven't won it since 1999 and last reached the playoffs in 2007.

Trying to play spoiler, the Eagles (4-11) fell short in what could've been Andy Reid's last game coaching the team at the Linc. Reid is unlikely to return to Philadelphia for his 15th season next year.
