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.
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.
It just doesn’t get any better than a Redskins-Cowboys football game. Our Washington Redskins are coming off a disappointing loss last Monday night against the Pittsburg Steelers, The Dallas Cowboys lost a close game to the division rival New York Giants. However, if you have a pulse, you know when the Redskins and Cowboys get it on, both teams come to play. We want a victory and make the Cowboys zero wins and two losses, both in the division. A win will get us 1 +1, and 1 + 0 in our division.
