LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins travel to Philadelphia on Sunday hoping to continue a 10-game home losing streak for the Eagles while keeping their own playoff hopes alive.

The Eagles, winners of two straight games behind the hot hand of Nick Foles, are a game and a half ahead of the Redskins in the division standings.

Here are five facts about the historical rivalry between the NFC East foes.

  • Sunday marks the 162nd time Redskins and Eagles have faced each other.
  • The Redskins have won two out of the last three meetings, while the Eagles have won six of the past nine.
  • Mike Shanahan is 5-6 all-time coaching against the Eagles. Chip Kelly is 1-0 against the Redskins.
  • The Redskins beat the Eagles 27-20 the last time they two teams played in Philadelphia. In that game, which was held on Dec. 23, 2012, Robert Griffin III had touchdown passes to Joshua Morgan and Santana Moss. Alfred Morris added a touchdown on the ground.
  • In the 2013 regular season opener, the Eagles beat the Redskins 33-27 at FedEx Field. Michael Vick passed for two touchdowns and added another on the ground in the Philadelphia win.
