Redskins’ Chris Thompson Puts Eagles’ Defense In A Blender For Wild TD


The Philadelphia Eagles might want to work on that whole tackling thing.

The Eagles led the Washington Redskins late in the second quarter of the teams’ NFC East matchup at FedEx Field. That is, before Redskins running back Chris Thompson did this:

Thompson took a screen pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins on second down and rambled 29 yards for the touchdown, using an insane spin move to escape a crowd of Eagles defenders.

That’s not a bad way for Thompson to score his first touchdown of 2017.

The 26-year-old recently signed a contract extension with Washington, and after this play, it looks like the Redskins made a prudent decision.
