Eagles at Redskins final score: Chip Kelly finds success in regular season debut


The Chip Kelly era in Philadelphia has gotten off to a great start, after the Eagles were able to use their high tempo offense and hang on to a 33-27 win over the Washington Redskins in the first game of the Monday Night Football double-header on ESPN.

Michael Vick totaled three touchdowns on the night, while running back LeSean McCoy ran for 184 yards, as Robert Griffin III struggled early and the Redskins could not overcome the early deficit.

Washington did make a late charge, but they were unable to haul in an onside kick with just over a minute to go in order to have the shot they needed to get the W.

For Griffin, it was a performance to forget.

In his first game since returning from a torn ACL, Griffin tossed a career high three interceptions.

Philadelphia will look to continue their winning ways in Week 2 against the San Diego Chargers, while the Redskins hope to rebound with a win over the Green Bay Packers.
