Down 14-0, the Redskins chipped away behind Suisham's accurate leg. His 41-yarder put Washington on the board, and he nailed a 48-yarder to make it 14-6 after a 15-play drive that lasted 8:19. Then he was perfect from 50 yards to get the Redskins within 14-9 at the end of the first half.
The Eagles drove 80 yards after receiving the opening kick to take a 7-0 lead. Westbrook gained 17 yards on a screen pass on the first play and ran in from the 9 to cap the 12-play drive. McNabb converted three third-down passes to keep it going.
After the Redskins went three-and-out, Jackson broke one. The rookie stepped up in traffic, ran to the near side and stopped. Jackson reversed direction, cut upfield and outraced everyone down the left sideline to give Philadelphia a 14-0 lead.
Jackson returned six punts for scores during a standout career at California. He had a 60-yard return to set up a field goal in the season opener against St. Louis.
