November 12-- Skins embarrassed by Eagles 27-3

The Redskins fell to 3-6 and 1-3 in the NFC East after a 27-3 loss in rainy Philadelphia.. The Skins have now gone five weeks without causing a turnover and fell to -3 in the turnover ratio after an interception by Sheldon Brown was returned for a touchdown in the game..
The Skins held the ball for 20 minute in the first half but only managed 3 points.. Philadelphia had a one play scoring drive, 84 yards from Donovan McNabb to Donte Stallworth and on their next possession scored on a 4 play drive that included a bizarre fumble/lateral play that went out of the hands of Reggie Brown into Correll Buckhalter’s for a touchdown..

Washington had over 200 yards of offense in the first half practically matching the Eagles except on the scoreboard where they trailed 17-3..
The Skins have now lost 3 road division games by a combined 57 points scoring 16 points total in the 3.. With the Eagles and Cowboys wins, Washington is now two games behind both in the NFC East standings are for all intents and purposes can only make the playoffs with a 7 game run to end the season coupled with at least 3 losses from Dallas and the Eagles..

RB Clinton Portis broke a bone on his ring finger on his right hand.. He will undergo surgery and will have a couple of screws placed in it, he will be out for at least 3 weeks and likely a month..
DE Phillip Daniels had x-rays taken on an injured forearm but they were negative, he returned to the game..

With the absence of Portis, the Skins gave 2 carries to TJ Duckett, his first touches in over five weeks..

QB Todd Collins was warming up to come into the game with nine minutes to play, but the Redskins never got the ball back.. Joe Gibbs said he would evaluate everything and did not close the door on a possible quarterback change this week..

Santana Moss succinctly said it was the team’s fault for their 3-6 record.. Everyone credited the Eagles for “beating us today.”

The Skins are at Tampa Bay next week before returning home for a 3 game homestand..
