Case Keenum proved that the Redskins are not weakest team in their division where they were leading with 20-14 till halftime.

Washington Redskins missed Trent Williams

They needed an offensive tackle at that moment who could have never let the Eagles run away to the other side. Trent Williams was missed badly and could have changed the fate of the game in the favor of Redskins. But the trade talks between Williams and Redskins are still not resolved and it led to their team losing the game.
Carson Wentz and DeSean Jackson saved the Eagles
Carson Wentz saved the day for the Philadelphia Eagles like a superhero in the second half of the game. Wentz showed the world why he was named as the MVP of 2017 finals where the Eagles won the Super Bowl title. It was touchdown after touchdown, and even other member got the energy by seeing Wentz scoring.
Carson Wentz, ladies and gents. This is the 2017 version. #Eagles

Deshaun Jackson also did s a great job as the supportive player and scored 15 points in just two drives. The defending side of Eagles should also be given the proper credit as the stopped the Redskins in the final quarter and changed the game in favor of their team.
