LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Kirk Cousins threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon with 26 seconds left Sunday to give the Washington Redskins a 23-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Starting at their own 10 with a little more than six minutes remaining, the Redskins (2-2) drove 90 yards on 15 plays to take the lead for good in a back-and-forth game.

Cousins finished 31 for 46 for 290 yards, the one TD - and, most importantly, no turnovers. He did fumble a snap in the first half at Philadelphia's 1, but recovered it himself and plunged forward for a touchdown, with the help of a big push from rookie running back Matt Jones.

Sam Bradford threw three second-half touchdown passes for the Eagles (1-3), but their new kicker, Caleb Sturgis, missed an extra-point attempt and a 33-yard field-goal try.
