Coach Mike Shanahan told reporters the Redskins' offense was limited against the Eagles by design. We saw a scheme that often looked more like what backup Kirk Cousins ran against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15 than the frenzied option attack RG3 led during the team's six-game winning streak.
"I could've done it against Philly," Shanahan said. "We just chose not to."
RG3 torched Dallas on Thanksgiving Day, but the Cowboys -- and especially Tony Romo -- have been playing on a different level in December. In November, it was widely assumed the New York Giants would take this division, but the Cowboys and Redskins have stormed back, earning the right to play for the NFC East title. Count us in.
