EAGLES 24, REDSKINS 16

At Philadelphia, Nick Foles threw for 298 yards and ran for a touchdown, LeSean McCoy had two TDs rushing and Philadelphia snapped a 10-game home losing streak. The Eagles hadn’t won at the Linc since defeating the Giants on Sept. 30, 2012.

“Not one person on this team was defeated,” Foles said. “Everybody in our locker room believed we can win and if you feel that way, it’s something special. We have to keep the momentum going.”

Chip Kelly’s Eagles (6-5) are first in the NFC East, a half-game ahead of idle Dallas. The defending division champion Redskins (3-7) were down 24-0 in the fourth quarter and rallied behind Robert Griffin III’s TD passes of 62 yards to Darrel Young and 41 yards to Aldrick Robinson and a pair of 2-point conversions.

BENGALS 40, BROWNS 21

At Cincinnati, in nasty weather, Andy Dalton threw two touchdown passes and the Bengals returned a blocked punt and a fumble for touchdowns during a 31-point second quarter that set a team record.

The Bengals (7-4) head into their bye week with a 2 1/2-game lead atop the AFC North.

This was the most lopsided game in the intrastate series since Cincinnati’s 30-0 win in Cleveland in 2006. It actually started well for the Browns (4-6), who got two picks by Joe Haden, who ran one of them back 29 yards for a touchdown and a 13-0 lead in the first quarter.

SEAHAWKS 41, VIKINGS 20

At Seattle, Percy Harvin made an impact in his season debut, returning a kickoff 58 yards to set up Russell Wilson’s 19-yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin, in the Seahawks’ franchise-record 13th straight home win.

Harvin made his anticipated Seattle debut against the Vikings (2-8), his former team, after missing the first 10 weeks following hip surgery. But Wilson and Marshawn Lynch wouldn’t let Harvin’s debut take the entire spotlight. Wilson had two touchdown passes, while Lynch had two touchdowns running and one receiving. Wilson completed 13 of 18 for 230 yards and a career-best passer rating of 151.4.
