Throw it back to New Year's Day, nine years ago, when the Redskins closed out their regular season with an exciting 31-20, come-from-behind win over the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.

While the Washington Redskins struck early and took a 7-3 lead over the Dallas Cowboys in the first quarter of Sunday’s season finale, they ultimately fell by a final of 44-17.
That early lead was the product of a 69-yard touchdown connection between quarterback Robert Griffin III and wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
Griffin III would finish the day 27-of-41 for a season-high 336 yards and his first rushing touchdown since Week 17 of the 2012 season, but he also had two costly turnovers in the red zone that stunted two separate drives.
Jackson, meanwhile, finished the day with 86 ... Read More
