The Redskins had a chance to end the Eagles’ season with a win, no matter how the Vikings fared in their regular season finale against the Bears.
Instead, they allowed the defending Super Bowl champions to dominate them from start to finish in one of the ugliest statistical performances in franchise history. Washington was limited to fewer than 100 yards for the first time since 1961 and shut out by the Eagles for the first time since a 24-0 blanking in 1980.
The loss means that the Redskins finish with a losing record for the 11th time in 20 seasons since owner Daniel Snyder bought the team in 1999 and for the third time in Coach Jay Gruden’s five seasons.
Meanwhile, the Eagles got the help they needed from the Bears, who beat the Vikings, 24-10.
