It wasn’t easy, but they did just that.
The Redskins started slow, Griffin threw an interception that allowed Philadelphia to make things interesting, but they emerged with a 27-20 victory at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday. Washington has won six in a row and is 9-6 with one game to play.
Players have talked for weeks about every game being a must-win. For all intents and purposes, that’s true. Beating the lowly Eagles advanced things for the Redskins, but much more work is still ahead of them.
They can clinch the NFC East by beating the Dallas Cowboys next week. But a loss would put their playoff chances in peril.
In his return from a right knee injury, Griffin was 16 for 24 with 198 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Running back Alfred Morris had 22 carries for 91 yards and a touchdown.
