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.
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.
That of course was Skip Bayless and Shannon on the “Undisputed” show before the Giants and Redskins met for battle in Week 3. I love the confidence that Skip showed in the team, and thought you might enjoy savoring that moment with me.
As a die-hard Washington Redskins fan and sportswriter, I really hate to write an article after a loss, especially after losing our first two regular season games and being 0 and 2. I really hate losing to what I see as an inferior team as we did against the Cowboys. I know our team has the potential be the highest scoring team in the NFL. We simply underachieved in both our loses on both sides of the ball.
