3 takeaways from Eagles 32-27 Week 1 win over Redskins

Washington drafted Guice in the second round of the 2018 draft after the 22-year-old churned out 2,638 rushing yards in his final two seasons with the Tigers. While the Eagles were 10 point favorites with the biggest point spread, the game ended blowing up all expectations.

Wentz finished the game completing 28-of-39 passes for 313 yards and three touchdowns.

Will the Redskins get revenge this time around? That outcome is not out of the question, but Keenum did everything he could to inspire confidence in his first test with his new team. He says it's the first time in his 13-year National Football League career he's been inactive for a regular season game in which he's been healthy and able to play.

Even though it didn't look pretty at first, the Philadelphia Eagles managed to earn the 32-27 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday to start the 2019 season on a hot note with a 1-0 record.


Redskins running back Derrius Guice is in danger of missing more time after sitting out all of last season. The result was the kind of Jekyll and Hyde performances in the first and second half that lead to more questions than answers with the Dallas Cowboys in town for the home opener Sunday.

Asked why he made a decision to sit the four-time All Pro back against Philly, Redskins coach Jay Gruden cited the need for help on special teams.

Gruden received some flack after not dressing Peterson this past Sunday.
