A bizarre series of events kept the Eagles from going for it on fourth down from inside the Redskins one. The Eagles took a timeout and following the timeout they were charged for a delay of game when they failed to pay heed to the play clock.
With the five yard loss, Philadelphia had to settle for a 23-yard David Akers field goal and trail it 17-6. The Redskins may have caught a break from the officiating crew and the gaffe will be a hot topic all week.
The Eagles now have control of the clock after their 16-play, 69 yard drive.
