Wentz and Jackson rally Eagles past Redskins

Carson Wentz threw three touchdown passes and rallied the host Philadelphia Eagles from an early 17-point deficit for a season-opening 32-27 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon.Wentz was 28 of 39 for 313 yards with a pair of 50-plus touchdown passes to DeSean Jackson. It was Wentz’s first game in nine months while he recovered from a stress fracture in his back.Jackson had eight catches for 154 yards.Case Keenum finished 30 of 45 for 380 yards and three touchdown passes in his first start for the Redskins.Keenum tossed two early TDs — a 48-yarder to Vernon Davis and a 69-yard loft to rookie Terry McLaurin — sandwiched around a 41-yard field goal by Dustin Hopkins.The Eagles sliced the lead to 17-7 when Jackson hauled in a 51-yard touchdown from Wentz with 4:19 remaining in the second quarter.Other than that connection, the Eagles’ offense sputtered through much of the first half.Hopkins hit a 48-yard field goal just before halftime for a 20-7 Washington lead.
