Nick Foles wasn't the savior.
The Philadelphia Eagles didn't beat the Washington Redskins to save the season.
Instead, two field goals were all the offense the Birds could muster as they fell to the Washington Redskins 31-6 for their sixth-straight loss.
Redskins rookie Quarterback Robert Griffin III was dazzling at times running the football, looking like a young Michael Vick in how he avoided sackers and tacklers. And Griffin showed off his cannon of an arm, tossing two long balls among his four touchdown passes.
Once again, the Eagles defense continued to slide. And Foles, making his first NFL start, had a shaky performance. It didn't help when a ball bounced off tight end Brett Celek into the Redskins hands for an INT. Foles tossed another interception shortly thereafter. Foles threw over 45 times and only had a little over 200 yards.
Meanwhile, Griffin threw 14 times, completed 13 and had four touchdowns.
Wideouts DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin were non-existent in the game plan and Celek had trouble catching the football once again.
Running back LeSean McCoy never got going and then left the game late with a head injury.
The defense got burned by the long ball. The best was a 60-year desperation pass by RGIII that found its way into the hands of Santana Moss despite two defenders pretty much wrapped about his waist.
It's really hard to watch this football team. Nothing is going right and nothing looks like it's getting fixed. Changes are needed – and needed badly. Sunday's game was another all-time low. It keeps getting worse.
Six games are left. For Philly fans, that's way too much suffering.
