It was over when ...
Redskins rookie safety LaRon Landry seperated Eagles receiver Kevin Curtis from the ball with a solid hit as the ball arrived. The fourth-down incompletion at the 5-yard-line gave the ball back to Washington, which then went into the victory formation and kneeled a pair of times to end the game.
Second-year linebacker Rocky McIntosh did not see the field much in his rookie season, but he gained accolades for his development in the offseason and showed why, badgering Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb all night and collecting nine tackles and a sack. While he was not given too much of an opportunity in the running game, Philadelphia's Brian Westbrook still had a magnificent game, accounting for 162 total yards on 25 touches (17 rushes, eight receptions).
Washington converted 8-of-15 third-down conversions, enabling it to extend drives and score, while the Eagles only delivered on 4-of-16 third-down attempts.
