Redskins start strong. Eagles finish stronger.

NFL schedule makers did the Washington Redskins a huge favor, assigning them a measuring stick matchup to kick off the 2019 season. That’s because there’s zero pressure taking on the Philadelphia Eagles, the presumptive favorite in the NFC East, in their hostile stadium when no one outside of Redskins Park gave them much of a chance to avoid embarrassment. And while most of the football-loving world expected a blowout, Washington refused to follow conventional wisdom. Instead, the Redskins’ offense, which […]

Redskins backups lose to Bengals backups in meaningless exhibition

The Washington Redskins dropped their preseason homer opener to the Cincinnati Bengals, 23-13. That said, roughly 10 minutes after the game ended, the vast majority of the football-loving world forgot everything about this irrelevant practice game. One play that ‘Skins fans won’t purge from memory though was the first touchdown pass by Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr., who staved off a defender long enough to launch a beautiful pass deep downfield to receiver Robert Davis for a 55-yard touchdown […]

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 […]
