Yesterday (as you already know) the New England Patriots beat the Washington Redskins 27 to 10. On the other hand an asteroid didn’t wipe out the New England coast, California didn’t slide into the ocean, Yellowstone Park didn’t disappear under megatons of volcanic pyroclastic debris, and Europe wasn’t invaded by masses of un-dead zombies.
Often in a loss there are so many positive aspects of the game that it makes losing a lot more easy, and Sunday’s game was a good example. Several facts about the game give me reason to be proud about the team’s performance::
Washington proved it can compete with any team
The Redskins defense played well considering a injured secondary
Our defense held Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan to zero touchdown passes and intercepted him twice
The Redskins defensive effort caused and recovered a fumble
Three total turnovers for the Skins defense, plus the sacks and constant QB pressure
