After falling behind in the first quarter, the Washington Redskins came back to take a 13-10 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles at halftime. The Redskins will receive the ball to begin the second half.

Washington got on the scoreboard with two field goals by Kai Forbath to draw within 7-6. Forbath hit from 45 and 42 yards and in the process he set the all-time NFL record for consecutive field goals made to begin a career.

Linebacker London Fletcher picked off Philadelphia's rookie quarterback Nick Foles with just over six minutes left in the half to set up the Redskins inside Eagles' territory. Washington capitalized on the great field position moments later when Josh Morgan caught a short pass from Robert Griffin III and ran in for an 11-yard touchdown, giving the Redskins their first lead of the game.

Philadelphia shrunk the lead to 13-10 just seconds before the half with a 38-yard field goal by Alex Henery.

Returning from his knee injury, Griffin III has completed eight of 13 passes for 93 yards while running twice for four yards.

Foles has completed 14 of 22 passes for 157 yards and a touchdown, but has been intercepted once and fumbled once.

Washington is 8-6 on the season, tied for first place in the NFC East and battling for a playoff position. The Eagles come into the game 4-10 and out of playoff contention.
