INTERVIEW – TREVOR MATICH – WMAL’s Redskins Analyst – recapped the Eagles vs Redskins game.
- Adrian Peterson rushes into the record books, but Redskins still fall to Eagles. LANDOVER, Md. – A strong offensive outing wasn’t enough Sunday for the Redskins, who fell to the Philadelphia Eagles in a last-minute heartbreaker. Acclaimed college football coach Urban Meyer was in owner Dan Snyder’s box to watch Sunday’s game, fueling speculation that he may be heading to the Burgundy and Gold. Two of Meyer’s former players at Ohio State, Dwayne Haskins and Terry McLaurin, showed out for their old coach too. Haskins was mostly sharp, completing more than 65 percent of his passes for 261 yards and two touchdowns. McLaurin added five catches for 130 yards and a touchdown, including a 75-yard score in the 1st quarter: But the Eagles took Haskins’ ill-advised toss on the final play of the game to the house to make Sunday’s loss worse. That was after the Eagles drove down the field to score a go-ahead touchdown in the final minute of the game. The final score was Eagles 37, Redskins 27. One bright spot for the Skins: Adrian Peterson. The running back padded his Hall of Fame resume with his 110th rushing touchdown, matching Walter Payton for 4th all-time in NFL history.
- Urban Meyer watching Sunday’s Redskins game from Dan Snyder’s box. LANDOVER, Md. – Are the Redskins looking to add another former Ohio State Buckeye? Three-time national champion college football coach Urban Meyer is watching Sunday’s Redskins game from owner Dan Snyder’s box at FedEx Field. Fox 5, which is broadcasting the game, showed Meyer during the 1st quarter of the game. Meyer won two national championships at Florida and another at Ohio State before retiring for health reasons (again) last year. He is now linked to a number of teams, including the Dallas Cowboys and USC Trojans. The Redskins are looking for a new coach after firing Jay Gruden this season. Snyder is also reportedly contemplating firing team president Bruce Allen this offseason if Meyer wants a front office role. Meyer would join fellow Buckeyes Dwayne Haskins and Terry McLaurin if he joined the Burgundy and Gold. He had to enjoy the 75-yard touchdown pass between his former players early in Sunday’s game
