Redskins offense finally scores a touchdown. Redskins defense gets blown out by mediocre Jets.

The New York Jets aren’t actually any good this season. In fact, a case can be made pretty easily that they’re hot garbage. Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell interim coach Bill Callahan and the Washington Redskins, who trailed the Jets by 31 points before scoring a few meaningless touchdowns in the fourth quarter to make the game appear closer than it actually was. Sam Darnold, who was mocked earlier this season for saying he saw ghosts while mic’d up during […]

Vikings pillage Redskins in routine victory over hapless opponent

Thursday Night Football is almost always trash. The games are usually bad matchups littered with sloppy play because of the short week. That said, this particular affair had been circled on the calendar as soon as the schedule came out. Thanks to numerous interesting and exciting subplots, fans of both franchises were excited and hopefully heading into this midweek battle. You had Kirk Cousins in a revenge match with the Washington Redskins franchise that drafted him, but never really learned […]

Mother Nature, 49ers cruise to easy win over Redskins

Before the season began, the Washington Redskins had grand plans for Week 7. The entire weekend was coined a “Fantennial Weekend,” as the organization acknowledged the National Football League’s 100th season with a series of fan-friendly events. That was also when the team’s annual homecoming game was set to take place, as some of the biggest names in franchise history stop by the stadium to remind ‘Skins fans of the good old days. That’s also when the franchise planned to […]

Moveable object battles stoppable force to a near draw

Contrary to what the final boxscore might suggest, there were no winners when the Miami Dolphins “battled” the Washington Redskins. That’s because these franchises came into this contest widely considered the two worst teams in the National Football League this season. While the Dolphins have been historically awful to start the 2019 season, they’re in the early stages of tearing it down and building it back up — trading away serviceable players for draft picks and otherwise stockpiling assets for […]

Patriots act like Super Bowl champs. Redskins do not.

The winless Washington Redskins host the undefeated New England Patriots. And it went about as well as anyone would have predicted. The defending Super Bowl champions allowed the rudderless Redskins to jump out to an early lead — thanks to a 65-yard touchdown run by rookie wideout Steven Sims Jr. — and then reeled off 33 straight points to dispatch of their would-be competitor. While some took solace in the Redskins becoming the first team to hold a lead over […]

Is it officially Dwayne Haskins time?

Roughly a month into the 2019 season, the Washington Redskins have yet to pick up a victory. Rumors run rampant about the fate of head coach Jay Gruden during a campaign that prominently features an abundance of mental mistakes, injuries and routine breakdowns in coverage. As if that wasn’t bad enough, turnover machine Case Keenum has been so bad the last two weeks that he forced Gruden to do the one thing he was adamantly against — play rookie quarterback […]

Redskins remain stuck in neutral in 2019

Once upon a time, the Washington Redskins stood tall at 6-3 and looked poised to make a triumphant return to the postseason. And then quarterback Alex Smith broke his leg in horrific fashion and the entire franchise has been traumatized ever since — going just 1-9 since Smith’s gruesome injury while being outscored by a whopping 102 points. Optimists in the Redskins fanbase looked at the anemic Chicago Bears offense as an opportunity for a struggling Redskins defense to get […]
