LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have begun the Chip Kelly era by beating the defending NFC East champions on their home field.
LeSean McCoy and Michael Vick helped the Eagles score 33 straight points in a 33-27 win over the Washington Redskins Monday.
Vick threw for 203 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and he also ran seven times for 55 yards and a score. McCoy led the Eagles ground attack with 184 yards, including a 34-yard scoring run that put the Eagles ahead 33-7 early in the second half.
The Redskins rallied as Alfred Morris scored on a five-yard run before Robert Griffin III tossed two TD passes to Leonard Hankerson, the last coming with 1:14 remaining. Griffin passed for 329 yards but had two interceptions and rushed only five times for 24 yards in his first game since undergoing major knee surgery last winter.
In the end, the Philadelphia Eagles unleashed coach Chip Kelly’s frenetic offense on the NFL on Monday night with a 33-27 win over the Washington Redskins.
