Eagles Beat Redskins

Carson Wentz tossed two touchdown passes, Darren Sproles ran for a score and the Philadelphia Eagles stayed in the hunt for the NFL's NFC East title with a 28-13 victory over the depleted Washington Redskins on Monday night.

The Eagles (6-6) won consecutive games for the first time since Nick Foles led them to a Super Bowl victory over the Patriots.

The Redskins (6-6) lost backup quarterback Colt McCoy to a leg injury in his second game replacing Alex Smith.

Mark Sanchez took his place.

Adrian Peterson ran 90 yards for a touchdown on Sanchez's first play under centre, giving the Redskins a 10-7 lead.
