11:26 pm
eagles leading late 34-17. it was a good start for the redskins, as i said. defense is looking sharp. offense made some plays, but the redskins lack that oomph when they get ahead to get further ahead. that's when they lack it. they don't embrace the chance and are rolling to keep it rolling. they had three possessions after that, couldn't do anything while the eagles started to rev their offensive engines where they would score 21 unanswered points. redskins finally answer with a score and kurt cousins, another bad interception. so in a big spot the redskins again coming up small. meanwhile the world's most overbearing living through their son father lavar ball is at it again. of course, his son alonzo plays for the lakers and our wizards visit l.a. and alonzo wednesday night and lavar had his thoughts on our wizards. >> washington is coming in here on wednesday. >> washington coming in
11:27 pm
witness? they better beware because alonzo ain't losing again, not in the same week. >> the wizards had a response. this is what lavar wants. i said don't take the bait, but on twitter they say man, please, we'll torture him. get ready to rumble on wednesday. i'm not even a dog guy, but this is just adorable stuff and this will all benefit a local charity, the homeward trails animal rescue. so buy that calendar. it goes for a great cause. >> look at them, the faces. >> smiles on their faces rather than angry going after people pushing them into walls
