Eagles near elimination, fall 27-24 to Redskins

Posted: Updated:
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles are on the brink of elimination from the playoff race after a 27-24 loss to the Washington Redskins on Saturday.
   
Kai Forbath kicked 26-yard field goal with 5 seconds remaining to snap the Redskins' six-game losing streak.
   
The Eagles lost their third in a row to fall to 9-6. They need the Dallas Cowboys to lose their final two games to have a shot at repeating as NFC East champs.
   
The Redskins improved to 4-11. Robert Griffin III returned as the Washington starter and won in his first complete game in more than a year. He went 16 for 23 for 220 yards with one interception.
   
Mark Sanchez committed two turnovers for the Eagles, including an interception that led to the winning field goal.
