Washington’s defense stops: The Eagles took the first goal on their first attempt, in an 11-yard catch from DeSean Jackson. The former Redskins receiver, back with the team that chose him after an off-season swap with Tampa Bay, sentenced Philadelphia’s two-game play later, when he was signaled by unnecessary harshness for to have made the Redskins Quinton Dunbar match after the whistle. Carson Wentz pitched too high for Alshon Jeffery in the third and long and the Eagles were forced to clear. (Redskins 7, Eagles 0, 8:59 1st quarter)

The opening campaign in Washington could not have been better for visitors. Derrius Guice led three times for nine yards and eight yards in the middle. In third and second place on a 48-yard Eagles line, Case Keenum found the tight end, Vernon Davis, on the ground. Davis, 35, departing from the injured Jordan Reed, battled Ronald Darby and broke an entry for Andrew Sendejo as he headed for the end zone. Keenum was 4 to 4 for 71 yards in the Washington touchdown at six yards.

Runner Adrian Peterson is one of the inactive Redskins in Sunday’s opening game. Peterson, who ran for 1,042 yards and was named the team’s most valuable player last season, is in good health but will remain supportive of Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson, and former Eagle Wendell Smallwood.
Former Redskins linebacker London Fletcher, now a CBS Sports Network analyst, said the decision did not go well in the Washington locker room.
“I spoke to a few people earlier this week and even today, and they are not happy with that,” Fletcher said Sunday in “That Other Pregame Show”. “Not everyone is on board with Adrian Peterson without playing.” In this game of ball When you think of going to Philadelphia and to oppose a defense like the Eagles, the Redskins will have to throw the ball. They will rely heavily on Derrius Guice, a guy resulting from an ACL injury. Therefore, it makes no sense for me not to have Adrian Peterson ready for this game, a guy who ran over 1000 yards for his football team last year, a guy who brings physical and stamina. This affects this wardrobe. I just do not understand. “
