WASHINGTON — The Washington Redskins have earned a berth to the playoffs for the first time since the 2012 season with Saturday night’s 38-24 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins threw for four touchdown passes — two to tight end Jordan Reed who now has 11 on the season. This is the first time a Redskins tight end has reached double digit figures since Jerry Smith had 12 in 1967. Running back Chris Thompson added a receiving touchdown in the third quarter, Pierre Garcon caught seven passes for 80 yards and a score as well.
DeAngelo Hall netted his tenth career touchdown off a DeMarco Murray fumble in the third quarter.
With the victory, the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are eliminated from the playoff picture.
