Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Redskins fell behind Philadelphia, 7-0, in the first quarter on a Nick Foles touchdown pass. Robert Griffin III returned to the starting lineup for the Redskins after sitting out with a knee injury last week.

The Washington Redskins trail the Philadelphia Eagles, 7-0, after one quarter at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

The Eagles got on the scoreboard first when rookie quarterback Nick Foles hit Jeremy Maclin for a 27-yard touchdown pass. The extra point by Alex Henery put Philadelphia ahead, 7-0, at the 10:15 mark of the first quarter.

The Redskins will start the second quarter with the ball after forcing Foles to fumble just before the end of the first quarter. It was the Eagles' 22nd lost fumble of the season.

In the first quarter, Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, coming back from a knee injury suffered two weeks ago, completed three of five passing attempts for 35 yards. Griffin III ran the ball once for just five yards.

Washington comes into the game 8-6 on the season and tied for first place in the NFC East. Philadelphia is just 4-10 on the season coming into Week 16.

The game can be seen on FOX.
