The Washington Redskins were wiped away by the Philadelphia Eagles in a frustrating 24-16 loss on Sunday, failing to score a point until the final quarter and losing out on a golden opportunity to climb back into the NFC East race.
The team is not taking it very well.
Offensive tackle Trent Williams was livid following the loss, reportedly blowing up in the locker room about the unprofessional behavior of the referees.

Trent Williams says refs were calling him fat a** garbage #redskins— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) November 17, 2013
Williams told Dianna Russini of Washington DC's NBC 4 that the officials were calling the Redskins players names and that reading their lips in the game film would prove it.
Video of the postgame comments from Williams, from CSN Washington:
Wide receiver Josh Morgan vented his frustration as well, blowing off reporters as he stormed off the field.

The Redskins fell behind 24-0 in the third quarter against the Eagles, and did not score their first points until 12:56 remaining in the game. A pair of long touchdown passes from Robert Griffin III threatened to pull Washington back into the game, but the comeback bid stalled.
The loss drops them to 3-7 and into last place in the division.
