Barwin Forces Red-Zone Turnover

The Eagles defense forced a red-zone turnover for the second straight week as Connor Barwin sacked Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and forced a fumble in the process. As Barwin sacked Griffin III at the Eagles' 13-yard-line, the ball popped into the air and fell into the hands of defensive tackle Fletcher Cox. Cox then returned the ball three yards before tossing an illegal forward lateral to safety Nate Allen.

The red-zone turnover comes one week after Brandon Boykin intercepted a pass in the end zone against the Green Bay Packers.

Trailing 14-0, the Redskins drove 72 yards to the Eagles' 8-yard-line before the turnover.

Over the last four games, the Eagles defense has allowed only two touchdown on 11 trips by the opponent.
