Along with taking the NFC East division championship, the Redskins collected the 600th win in franchise history against the Eagles on Saturday night.

The Redskins' 38-24 victory over the Eagles on Saturday night made history for a couple reasons. Aside from clinching the NFC East division title, the Redskins also won their 600th game in franchise history, adding some extra context to their sweet celebration.

Entering Saturday night's game, the Redskins all-time record stood at 599-583-27. With the win, which includes the postseason, the Redskins, who came to Washington from Boston in 1937, became  just the fifth franchise in NFL history to record 600 wins all-time, joining the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Just more than 10 years ago, the Redskins collected their 500th all-time victory, a 16-10 victory over the Buccaneers on Sept. 12, 2004, which also marked legendary head coach Joe Gibbs' return to the sidelines in Washington.

It was also Gibbs' 125th regular season win as Redskins head coach, making him responsible for a full one-quarter of the franchise's then 500 wins.

Washington's first victory in Washington, D.C., came on Sept. 16, 1937, in front of 25,000 fans inside Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C., where the Redskins beat another division rival in the New York Giants 13-3 thanks to Riley Smith's two field goals and 60-yard interception return.

Their quest for 700 win begins next week when the team travels to Dallas to close out the regular season.
