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.
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.
Vernon Davis: “I’m very excited, I have never played with this much talent on one defense before.”
David Bruton: “I did not come here to be mediocre – I came here to be great!”
DeAngelo Hall on switching from cornerback to safety: “It has me rejuvenated, focused, excited!”
General Manager Scot McCloughan knows defense wins championship as he built top defenses with the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. He’s watching closely and will not be satisfied with a 24th ranked defense.
