Eagles Bounce Back with Win Over Redskins
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- DeSean Jackson scored on a 67-yard reverse and caught a 57-yard touchdown pass, and the Philadelphia Eagles converted three turnovers into points Monday night in a 27-17 win over the Washington Redskins.

Nearly all the scoring came in the first half of an injury-filled game that got the Eagles (4-2) back to form after last week's jarring loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Philadelphia's Brian Westbrook suffered a concussion, and Washington's Chris Cooley left with a right ankle injury.

Donovan McNabb completed 15 of 25 passes for 156 yards. The defense sacked Jason Campbell six times, and newcomer Will Witherspoon ran back an interception for a touchdown and created another turnover.

The Redskins fell to 2-5.
