Tough Lost on Season Opener. Eagles beat Redskins 33-27

What seems to be a great start turned into a horrible nightmare. The Redskins lost to Eagles after working hard in the 2nd half from what seemed to be a can't get it right first half.

 ''Had a serious case of the can't-get-rights,'' Griffin said. ''Penalties, hurting ourselves. I don't throw picks, Alfred doesn't fumble, and Kai doesn't miss field goals. All three of those happened tonight. So we'll get better, no doubt.'' 

 Washington didn't run a play in Philadelphia territory until the second half. At one point, the Eagles were just outnumbering the Redskins 146-3. Even Kai Forbath, who made 17 of 18 field goals in his rookie year, was wide right in the third quarter. 

 Griffin had a great night after that bad first half experience and ended with 30 of 49 for a career-high 329 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
