Redskins Vs. Eagles Final Score Update: Redskins Lose 35-10, End Season 5-11

In a lost season, the Redskins ended the year in appropriate fashion with a 35-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The loss drops Washington's record to 5-11 for the season, a disappointing record in Coach Mike Shanahan's second year.

Twice in the second half the Redskins cut the Eagles lead to three, but after Eagles quarterback Michael Vick found receiver DeSean Jackson for a touchdown on a deep pass play the Redskins never recovered. From there, the Eagles tacked on two more touchdowns and the rout was on.

For Redskin fans looking for good news, take heart in backup running back Evan Royster's performance. The rookie from Penn State rushed for more than 100 yards and a healthy 5.5 yards-per-carry average. After Royster, and fellow rookie Roy Helu busting a long touchdown, there was little to cheer for from Washington.

There is always next year, and the Redskins will have a high draft pick to address desperate needs on both sides of the ball. Perhaps the team will tackle the quarterback position with its early pick.
