UNDATED (AP) -- Critical turnovers and missed field goals have the Philadelphia Eagles on the brink of elimination from the NFC playoff hunt.

Kai (ky) Forbath hit a 26-yard field goal with five seconds left to give Washington a 27-24 win over the Eagles. It came following an interception by Mark Sanchez, who also had a first-quarter fumble that set up a field goal.

Cody Parkey missed field-goal tries of 34 and 46 yards after stalled drives by the Eagles.

Sanchez completed 37 of his 50 passes for 374 yards and two touchdowns, but his two turnovers contributed to the Eagles' third straight loss.

Philadelphia dropped to 9-6 and now needs the Dallas Cowboys to lose their final two games to have a shot at repeating as NFC East champs.

Robert Griffin III threw for 220 yards, no touchdowns and one interception for Washington, which improved to 4-11.

San Diego is facing a "must win" situation as it visits the 49ers tonight. Things weren't going well for the Chargers, who trailed 28-7 midway through the third quarter.
