Cincinnati rallies past Hokies in 2018 Military Bowl

Let’s be honest — the Virginia Tech Hokies shouldn’t have been allowed to play in a bowl game this year. Not when they needed an overtime victory over Virginia and a win over Marshall, who magically appeared on their schedule just two weeks earlier. That said, Hokies fans weren’t exactly going to protest when Virginia Tech was invited to a 26th consecutive bowl game, which is how I found myself patrolling the sidelines of the 2018 Military Bowl. But much […]

Redskins officially eliminated from playoffs. Again.

The Washington Redskins were hoping for a holiday miracle as they traveled to Nashville three days before Christmas. That’s because, after losing four out of five games, the Redskins needed to win and — and get help from others ahead of them in the standings — just to back into a playoff berth. And while no one likes to see opposing players get injured, Washington had to feel encouraged after knocking Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota out of the game. But […]

The Josh Johnson feel-good story continues.

Imagine, if you will, sitting down with a giant bowl of popcorn to watch the latest Hollywood hit. This sports drama takes place in our nation’s capital, where a downtrodden franchise finds itself quickly sinking to the depths of irrelevance once again after losing not one, but two separate quarterbacks to a broken leg. No team can withstand losing their top-two options at the sport’s most vital position, and an already bleak situation turns even more dire when the last […]

This November, Redskins have little to give thanks for.

For decades, the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys have represented one of the best rivalries in all of sports. And while neither franchise is anywhere close to rekindling the glory days, the NFL’s schedule makers can’t help but feel nostalgic when it comes to these two teams because, more and more frequently, they find themselves pitted against one another in primetime games. With that in mind, I once again ditched my loved one and traveled to Jerry’s World to cover […]

An ugly win is still a win, right?

The Washington Redskins might have left town with a 16-3 victory, but it couldn’t have happened without a heavy dose of ineptitude from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick led the Buccaneers’ offense up and down the field with relative ease, but drive after drive stalled due to self-inflicted errors. On a day when Tampa racked up 500 yards of total offense, they finished the game with more turnovers (four) than points (three). While “Fitzmagic” was the talk of […]

Injuries, mental mistakes prove costly as Redskins fall to Falcons

The Washington Redskins jumped out to an encouraging start to the 2018 season thanks in large part to stout defense and just enough offense. Unfortunately, on a day when the defense finally faltered, the offense was incapable of picking up the slack and the results weren’t pretty. Adding insult to literal injury, Sunday’s 38-14 blowout loss to the Atlanta Falcons may have long-term ramifications as two more offensive linemen joined Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams on the injured list. At […]

Redskins have no answers as Saints go marching on. And on.

All was right with the Washington Redskins after the steamrolled Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers during their Week 3 matchup. Sadly, one week later, it all came crashing down and it definitely hurt inside, even if Hulk Hogan was nowhere to be found. While things couldn’t have gone much worse for Washington, Drew Brees and friends had a night to remember — as the future Hall of Famer became the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards in dramatic […]
