Robert Griffin III threw two touchdown passes in his first game back from a knee injury, Kai Forbath set the NFL record for consecutive field goals to begin a career and the Washington Redskins held on to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 for their sixth consecutive victory. Nick Foles drove the Eagles to the Redskins 5 before his intentional grounding penalty ended the game. The Redskins (9-6 ) can clinch the NFC East with a victory over Dallas at home next Sunday. The Redskins haven’t won it since 1999 and last reached the playoffs in 2007. They could still back into the postseason with a loss. 4C
