Washington Redskins fumble on first offensive play

The Philadelphia Eagles have been on the field for twenty plays to start the first game of the Monday Night Football double-header on ESPN against the Washington Redskins, while Robert Griffin III and the Redskins have been on the field for just one play.

Unfortunately for Washington, their only play in the first six minutes of the game resulted in a fumble by running back Alfred Morris that the Eagles were able to recover.

On the very next play, Michael Vick nailed DeSean Jackson on a post for the 25 yard touchdown.

The good news for Washington is that their defense was able to take a backwards pass from Michael Vick 75-yards to paydirt to start the game, so the Redskins trail only 10-7 despite being on the field for a much shorter period of time.

Eventually Robert Griffin III will get to throw a pass and give the Redskins fans what they came to in Landover, Maryland, but until then we should get used to watching the high flying Eagles offense run up and down the field.
