Redskins 31, Eagles 6

'Skins look ahead fast after laugher

LANDOVER, Md. — There was some scoreboard watching in the Redskins locker room. A near-perfect game from Robert Griffin III buoyed the hopes of a team that hadn't won in more than a month.

"Did Dallas lose?" right guard Kory Lichtensteiger asked a group of reporters.

In the Eagles locker room, it was the same old same old. The losing streak had reached six games, accelerating the countdown toward the possible end of Andy Reid's 14-year tenure as coach.

"I don't know how it can get much worse," tight end Brent Celek said.

Washington is only a game ahead of Philadelphia, but the Redskins retained outside hopes of a playoff chase largely because of Griffin, who was 14 of 15 for 200 yards and four TDs , one in each quarter. He also ran 12 times for 84 yards.

Now the Redskins have a short week before heading to Dallas — which won, by the way — for a renewal of a traditional Thanksgiving rivalry.
