NFL: Washington 27, Philadelphia 20

Dec. 23, 2012 at 4:31 PM   |   Comments

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Robert Griffin III hurled a pair of touchdown passes Sunday and Washington got closer to a division title with a 27-20 win over Philadelphia.

Griffin, still feeling the effects of a sprained knee ligament that forced him to miss last week's game, played with a brace on his knee but still managed to amass 198 passing yards with an interception on 16-of-24 attempts.

Washington held on for the victory when a late comeback try by the Eagles fell short as Nick Foles was penalized for intentional grounding with 1 second left at the Redskins' 5-yard line.

With its sixth straight win, Washington (9-5) now can clinch the NFC East title with a victory next week over Dallas.

Alfred Morris gained 91 yards and scored a touchdown on 22 carries for the Redskins.

Philadelphia (4-11) meanwhile, lost for the ninth time in 10 games.
