PHILADELPHIA -- Nick Foles threw for 298 yards and ran for a touchdown, LeSean McCoy had two TDs rushing and the Philadelphia Eagles snapped a 10-game home losing streak with a 24-16 victory over Washington on Sunday.

A year after finishing 4-12 under Andy Reid, Chip Kelly's Eagles (6-5) are first in the NFC East. They're a half-game ahead of idle Dallas (5-5). Washington, the defending division champions, fell to 3-7.

The Eagles hadn't won at the Linc in 413 days since defeating the New York Giants on Sept. 30, 2012.

Down 24-0 in the fourth quarter, Washington rallied behind Robert Griffin III's TD passes of 62 yards to Darrel Young and 41 yards to Aldrick Robinson and both 2-point conversions.

RG3 then drove Washington to the Eagles 18 before his pass off his back foot was intercepted by Brandon Boykin.
