It’s Dallas Week! …If you listen hard you’ll hear the sound of war drums on the Potomac, because the Cowboys are coming to town Sunday. This division rivalry has been going on ever since the Dallas Cowboys entered the league in 1960 – …any Redskins fan who doesn’t get excited about the Skins stomping a mudhole into the Cowboys needs to check his pulse!
When the Washington Redskins play the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday it won’t be in Cincinnati Ohio, rather in London England with 90,000 fans in Wembley Stadium. Let’s accept it, our Redskins are now International. I knew we had fans all over the world, but never expected our Redskins to play all over the world.
NFL football is definitely a 60 minute game, Unfortunately for our Washington Redskins the last minute of the game turned the victory into a loss. In his 100th game Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford saw Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins fool the Lions defense with a read-option keeper and run 19 yards for a touchdown. That gave the Redskins a 4 point lead with only a minute left in the game. Stafford lead his team downfield like a veteran quarterback and hit receiver Anquan Boldin for an 18-yard touchdown with 16 seconds left, giving the Lions a 20-17 win.
The Baltimore Ravens fired their offensive coordinator after losing to the Washington Redskins, their 2nd straight loss. Our 3 and 2 Washington Redskins are back in the mix and a victory next game at home versus the Philadelphia Eagles will put us at 4 and 2, 2 and 1 in the NFC East Division. That said, for us be competitive in the division we have to get back to the basics – 21 pass plays to 8 rushing plays in the first half shows room for improvement.
Our Washington Redskins defeated the Cleveland Browns by the score of 31 to 20. It’s “Victory Monday”. The game was closer than the score would indicate. The First Quarter was “owned” by the Redskins. The offense was sharp, two long drives resulting in touchdown passes by Captain Kirk Cousins, who was 10 of 11 passes and commanded a balanced attack with Matt Jones running the ball almost 50 percent ot the successful touchdown drives. It appeared the Redskins were on their way to a rout over the Cleveland Browns.
