Redskins trail by 2 at halftime
Washington had a chance to go into halftime with a lead over the division rival Philadelphia Eagles thanks to a Santana Moss touchdown and a defense that came up with a key stop after a turnover. Instead, a questionable decision and late turnover left the Redskins trailing by two at the break.
Washington was driving as the first quarter came to a close and it continued to move the ball after the break, with Jason Campbell finding both second-year wide receivers, Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly, on key receptions.
On third-and-9, Campbell hit Thomas for a gain of 12 to keep the drive alive, then facing third-and-2 from the 31, Campbell nicely placed a pass just over the cornerback and into Kelly's hands down the right sideline for a gain of 27.
Two plays later, Campbell found Santana Moss in the slot for a four-yard touchdown that gave Washington a 14-10 lead.
Following that score, both teams failed to put much together on the next few drives. Washington failed to capitalize on field position when a penalty put them at the Eagles 40-yard line to start a drive, and after taking over again following another Philadelphia punt, Jason Campbell threw an interception to Asante Samuel on a poor pass in the slot.
That pick gave the Eagles the ball at the Redskins' 21, but Washington held the Eagles to a field goal and maintained the lead, 14-13.
The Redskins took over with just under a minute remaining in the half and looked to put more points on the board. Instead, after a false start and two passes, Campbell threw another interception and gave the Eagles the ball at Washington's 28-yard line.
Philadelphia got a 41-yard field goal from David Akers and took a 16-14 lead.
With one second left on the clock, the Redskins again opted to look to take a shot. The half ended with Campbell thrown to the ground for a 10 yard loss and Washington went into the locker room trailing by two.
