Redskins Highlights: Just The Touchdowns

Posted Dec 26, 2012

The Redskins' offense scored three touchdowns in victory this week in Philadelphia, including two in the second half. Here are the video highlights vs. the Eagles!

With starting quarterback Robert Griffin III back in the lineup this week, the Redskins kept rolling on offense, scoring another three touchdowns against the Phildelphia Eagles.

On the season, the Redskins have scored seven touchdowns against the Eagles, more than the last three games combined.

Griffin III keyed the offense, despite being limited with a sore right knee.  He finished the day 16-for-24 for 198 yards, two touchdowns and and 102.4 passer rating.

The first touchdown of the day came with 3:30 remaining in the first half and the Redskins driving inside the red zone.  Griffin III lined up under center, with receiver Joshua Morgan coming in motion behind him, left to right.

Griffin III took the snap and immediately passed to Morgan, who followed a series of blocks by fellow receivers Pierre Garcon and Santana Moss for the touchdown:

The touchdown gave the Redskins the 13-10 halftime advantage, a lead that they would not relinquish.

The Redskins received the ball first in the second half and marched 72 yards down the field in just five plays, taking 2:21 off the clock. The Redskins picked up 50 yards through the air with 29-yard and 21-yard passes to Garcon and tight end Niles Paul, setting up the ground game for running back Alfred Morris.

After gains of nine and three yards, Morris broke through on 1st-and-10 from the Eagles 10-yard line, racing untouched for his 10th touchdown of the year:

Morris's touchdown tied the franchise mark set by future Hall of Famer Charley Taylor for combined touchdowns in a rookie season.

The Redskins now had a 20-10 lead, and had outscored the Eagles 20-3 in the previous 28 minutes of play. After a punt on the next possession, the Redskins got the ball back following an Eagles turnover on downs at the 50-yard line.

Looking to deflate the clock, the Redskins pounded the ball on four-consecuitve plays, gaining 28 yards on the ground. Griffin III did the rest of the work through the air, finding Santana Moss for 22 yards on third down:
