Redskins Vs. Eagles First Quarter Update: Redskins Trail 3-0

Neither offense looked particularly dynamic but the Philadelpia Eagles did just enough to work a 3-0 lead over the Washington Redskins at the end of the first quarter. The Eagle field goal came early in the first quarter from kicker Alex Henery.

The Redskins had an opportunity for points as quarterback Rex Grossman unloaded a deep pass to receiver Santana Moss, but Moss was unable to haul the pass in. An Eagle defender may have tipped the ball, but the pass dropped through Moss's hands in the end zone. Outside of that deep pass, the Redskin offense has looked mostly inefficient.

The Redskins defense has played relatively well, limiting the Eagles from big plays. Brian Orakpo had a sack on Eagle quarterback Michael Vick, an encouraging sign for a player who usually remains quiet in division games.
