    Robert Griffin III was limited with a knee brace but still threw two touchdowns passes, and the Washington Redskins held on against the Philadelphia Eagles, 27-20, to put themselves on the brink of a division title.

    In perhaps Andy Reid's final home game as their head coach, the Eagles scored a late touchdown and reached the Washington 5-yard line in the closing seconds. The comeback came up short, as Nick Foles was flagged for intentional grounding with one second left, resulting in a 10-second runoff that ended the game.

    The Redskins (9-6), behind Griffin and fellow rookie Alfred Morris, have recorded five road wins in one season for the first time since 1991 and can capture their first NFC East crown in 13 years with a home win over the Cowboys in next week's regular season finale.

    Griffin missed last week's win over Cleveland with a sprained right knee and only ran the ball twice on Sunday to go with 198 yards and an interception on 16-of-24 attempts.
