Philadelphia Eagles running back Bryce Brown (34) escapes the grasp of Washington linebacker Perry Riley during the first half of an NFL football game in Philadelphia, Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013.
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.
