Week 2: Redskins 20, Eagles 12

A great win, a great win. Winning in Philly is tough, especially with a young QB and a blitz-happy Jim Johnson defense. It is doubly tough when you lose your second offensive lineman of the season to injury. However, the Redskins played to their character (defense and power-running) and won a division road game. Its a winning formula.

Jason Campbell improved and showed the poise that made him a 1st round draft choice. He was not as inconsistent as he was against Miami. However, he still made some mistakes, the 2nd quarter pick and the overthrown deep ball to a wide-open Santana Moss that would have sealed the game and spared me the nervous pacing during the final minute goal-line stand. Despite this you could see Campbell's improvement and glimpses of how special he will be in the near future.

The defense was superb, they gave up some yardage yet they kept the Eagles out of the endzone in 5 redzone possessions. Rookie safety LaRon Landry made the game winning hit by laying the wood to Eagles receiver Kevin Curtis on 4th and 6 to seal the win.
