Redskins defense gets on roll they hope continues vs. Eagles (The Associated Press)

The oft-criticized Washington Redskins defense is finally clicking, and not a moment too soon with another NFC East matchup coming up. The Redskins allowed just 210 passing yards to Joe Flacco in a 16-10 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and they haven’t given up a second-half touchdown in three consecutive games. Injuries to cornerbacks Bashaud Breeland and Dashaun Phillips and season-ending injuries to safety DeAngelo Hall and defensive tackle Kedric Golston threatened to derail Washington, but Josh Norman and others have shouldered the load.
