Need to Know: Longest home win streak for Redskins since RFK days

Nov 30, 2015, 5:33 AM EDT


Here is what you need to know on this Monday, November 30, seven days before the Washington Redskins host the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night football.

Notes and numbers from Redskins 20, Giants 14

— The win was the Redskins’ fifth straight at home. They have never won five in a row at home in a single season at FedEx Field. They last had that many straight wins at home in 1991 when they called RFK Stadium home.

—Kirk Cousins threw for 302 yards, his fourth game with over 300 yards this season. The last Redskins quarterback to have that many 300-yard games in a season was Brad Johnson in 1999.

—During the five-game home winning streak Cousins has completed 76 percent of his passes for 1,436 yards with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions. That comes to a passer rating of 114.4.

—Cousins threw a 63-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson in the second quarter. It was Jackson’s 19th career touchdown covering 60 or more yards. That is the fourth-most all-time in the NFL. On the all-time list he trails Bobby Mitchell (20) by one and Jerry Rice (23) by four.

—Ryan Kerrigan recorded two sacks, giving him 44.5 for his career. That moved him past Monte Coleman and into third place on the Redskins all-time sack leaders (note that the NFL started keep sacks as an official stat in 1982).


Today’s schedule: Jay Gruden news conference 3 p.m., Comcast SportsNet

Days until: Monday night Cowboys @ Redskins 7; Redskins @ Bears 13; Bills @ Redskins 20

    First, much of these notes were focused on Cousins, which he should get plenty of accolades being the leader driving these Great performances. Cousins is leading this team as a QB better than any QB we have had in a LONG time. He does deserve the multiple stat highlights. But it was quite apparent this was a team win. From special teams to water boy. Everything was well done. Unsung hero goes to defense. They were really pressed to stop a potent offense and they did. This is while losing our best corner. How many turnovers did they create? Wow, what a performance by the defense. Pot roast showed up today with some tackles. First time I have actually seen him wrap up tackles on the line he was impeding. Team win. Even the coaches coached well.

    Morris is back thank god. I saw some spark from him that has been too long. I liked the balance created between him and Jones. Coaches got them both going. That screen play by Jones is very tough to beat. That play rules.

    WE OWN THE NFC EAST!!! Our destiny is in our own hands. We control it now. We keep winning and we keep advancing toward the playoffs. We made the Giants look nonexistent. Our growth as a team has been outstanding. We are only going to continue to get better as time moves deep into December.


    • cpst123 - Nov 30, 2015 at 7:03 AM

      I like the win but “Great performances” ???

      My blood pressure was off the charts during the 4th quarter. We started coasting WAY too early. You can’t criticize coaching for dropped passes but you can for this prevent defense with 12 mins to go. Plus the lack of offense after 2 Eli turnovers in the 1st quarter? We should have put this baby to bed before the half. The Giants didn’t come to play.

      I did like the defensive effort right up to that prevent junk we saw in the 4th quarter. Guys were flying around with energy. The variety of screen plays was good to see as well.

      I see a lot of potential but lets keep fixing mistakes.

      • ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© - Nov 30, 2015 at 7:29 AM

        Having ‘HTTRed!’ already, I will concur on the use of the prevent.

        We had Manning stifled all day. He was missing center Weston Richburg, and could not step up into the pocket.

        As soon as we switched to the preventless D, he was able to step up and started torching us.

        • Rich Tandler - Nov 30, 2015 at 9:05 AM

          I don’t know what prevent you’re talking about. If anything, they were too tight on the fourth and 16 TD to Randle. Rushed 4 all day, continued to do so in 4th quarter. The other team made some plays.

        • darcrequiem - Nov 30, 2015 at 11:35 AM

          It wasn’t a prevent defense. On the Randle TD, Dashon Goldson for some insane reason, decided to peak into the backfield let Randle get behind him. His only job on that play was to , not let anyone get behind him. As a veteran player, I don’t understand his rationale on that play. I could see Jarrett doing something like that, he’s a rookie. Goldson should have known better. On the second TD, Beckham just made an exceptional play.

      • voice4thefans - Nov 30, 2015 at 8:00 AM

        No I disagree with the D’s afford because Odell catch in the fourth Qt was off the Charts, No other receiver in the NFL would have made that Catch ,but my only problem with the D is that Breeland should have been following Odell where ever he line up Blackmam can not stay with him and he was burned twice

      • Rich Tandler - Nov 30, 2015 at 9:06 AM

        It was not a prevent defense.

      • brucefan1 - Nov 30, 2015 at 9:29 AM

        That comeback was nerve-racking, but keep in mind that the Giants are a worthy opponent who had dominated the Skins during recent memory.

        A win in any way, shape or form is more than enough for me. (If the teams had exchanged the same scoring equally, instead of Skins early on and they late, this never even would be a concern, right?)

        I mean, any offense that has a weapon like Beckham, Jr. in their arsenal has to be considered dangerous til the final gun. Bro is off the chain!!

      • John - Nov 30, 2015 at 10:10 AM

        They were not in a prevent. If so, Randle would not have gotten past them. They were in a Tampa 2 coverage with the corners trapping like Carolina. We don’t have the dbs to go man with the Giants play in play out, especially without Culliver. The other guys are paid to make plays and sometimes they make a great play and beat you, especially if they are passing on just about every play.

      • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 10:27 AM

        As Rich stated, not a prevent defense. If it were prevent, Eli wouldn’t have had all those incompletions on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd down. The Giants didn’t score until Quinton Dunbar (legend in the making) injured his index finger.

        What I DID NOT like was the ultra-conservative nature the offense went after the failed 4th and 1. Then it was run, run, pass, punt; followed by the Giants (incomplete, incomplete, incomplete, punt). Rinse. Repeat. The 3rd quarter took an eternity. It looked very Steve Spurrier-esque – trying to run out the clock from the midway point of the 3rd quarter. This Redskins team is successful when they throw on the 1st first down of the drive – otherwise they basically concede a down. We might as well start at 2nd and 12. The first few series of the game were unsuccessful because it is known that we want to establish the run. Didn’t run the screen to Jones again in the 2nd half. Why? The offense had the chance to put this game away and the coaches got “shy”. Alf was super and it’s good to see that kind of effort by a guy that has been so important to any of the team’s recent success but the coaches will need to go balls to the wall against the Bears or Bills.

        Great victory because that is what it comes down to: Ws and Ls. No matter how they come, they only count once.


        The first time ever FedEx Field is an advantage and Redskins’ ticket holders can’t be bothered. Anyone watch the folks in Wisconsin show up and stay through the worst possible weather conditions (36, windy, and rainy)? Fat chance our ticket holders would ever be caught in that weather from the car to the office. Victory Monday, and it’s a ghost town here because a future with Gruden and Cousins is so unpalatable to our fans. That’s what a soulless stadium and a generation of losing will do to a fan base. In the Gibbs era, it was all about the team. We’ve got a similar team now but seems like the new generation of Redskin fans wants winning with celebrity. I’ll take just winning.

        • ET - Nov 30, 2015 at 12:54 PM

          ” The offense had the chance to put this game away and the coaches got “shy” … the coaches will need to go balls to the wall against the Bears or Bills.”

          I would’ve liked to see some continued aggression by the offense as well. They sat on the lead, which is typically a dangerous strategy :)

          Alfred looked better than he had in recent weeks, which is a big plus. If Rich posts his per player snap counts, I’m curious to see if Darrel Young’s went up a little. It seemed like there were a few more two back sets, but I’m not sure if that’s my imagination or not. With the TEs decimated, the coaches need to get creative with any available lead blockers. (God bless Jordan Reed, he’s tryin’ his best.)

        • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 1:08 PM

          Reed’s blocking isn’t great but they aren’t usually called as penalties by teams not wearing B&G. Good to see DY in the game. Would’ve been interesting if he got the hand off on the 4th and short. The Giants looked as if they got penetration.

    Winning at home is big! For too long Fedex has been other teams 9th home game. Did you see how many blue jerseys were there. Too many corporations own tickets to the games and just give them to employees who are for whatever team is visiting. Odell was on the sidelines encouraging the crowd. That is not something to expect to see from a visiting team. The team needs to win to bring Redskin’s fan back.

    • goback2rfk - Nov 30, 2015 at 7:23 AM

      Amen brother. Good post.

    • voice4thefans - Nov 30, 2015 at 8:03 AM

      Come on man its been like that for years,just watch when we go to Philly later in Dec. and watch and see how many Skins fans will be in them seats , it will be a lot

    • sidepull - Nov 30, 2015 at 8:11 AM

      I wish it was snowing so we could have pelted ODB for running up and down the sidelines at Fedex.

    • brucefan1 - Nov 30, 2015 at 9:48 AM

      “Winning at home is big”

      So true— but winning on the road will be even BIGGER!

      Now that they’ve jumped their “NY Giants” hurdle, there next Redskins barrier is a road win. (And as glum as they must be, I don’t think the Pokes are gonna be an easy obstacle. Ya know what they say, “Misery loves company” — and I think they want us B&G fans to join their miserable company!)

      As far as FedEx being invaded by opposition fans, well in these days of ticket resellers (legal “scalpers” is what I see em as) this phenomenon is really common everywhere (well maybe not in Pittsburgh!). We Skins fans can do OUR part now by scooping up what is sure to be an excess of prime seating — at bargain prices — at Jerrah’s gyp joint, and turn that lower bowl into a sea of B&G.

      Whatta ya say guys and gals …. road trip??!! LOL

      • brucefan1 - Nov 30, 2015 at 4:29 PM


        Have I been calling next week’s Dallas game a ROAD game for the last 24 hours.?! Great to now know that it’s at FedEx. Even better! (But they gotta get that road win sometime!!)

        (And thanks all for being so polite and not ragging on that major faux pas on my part! Appreciate it! (Uhh … that WAS why no one mentioned it, right? I mean … what else could it be, right?? LOL)

  4. voice4thefans - Nov 30, 2015 at 8:20 AM

    Look at it this way WE played a undefeated Atlanta team on the road a undefeated New England team on the Road and A Undefeated Carolina Team on the Road 3 very hard road game that at the time no other team had beaten them , LOOK people we will win a road game this season maybe 2 , we only have 2 more home games we really need to win @ Chi and @ Phi because we are not just playing for the Div we are also playing for a wild card spot ,yes we can lose the Div but still get a wild card the 3 team that are ahead of US are ATL 6 and 5 Chi we are tied 5 and 6 and the Sea hawks who are 6 and 5 , ATL holds the tie breaker but they are falling hard, and Phi who play a pissed off New England team next week is also on our butts BUT OUR DESTINY IS OUR OWN HANDS HTTR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • realfan82 - Nov 30, 2015 at 10:25 AM

      actually it’s seattle green bay and atlanta. chicago is 3rd in their division. Atl will have to fall to 7-9, seattle will have to tie us and/or greenbay will have to possibly fall below us to get a wild card spot. We will have to get to 9-7 (pending giants loss to panthers or vikings) to win the division meaning we would have the better division record regardless of dropping one against the cowboys or eagles. (4-2 division record)

      • captblood3000 - Nov 30, 2015 at 12:00 PM

        I’ve looked at the remaining schedule and I see little reason to think that any NFC East will finish better than 8-8. The Cowboys have already lost 8 games They will have to run the table, and they visit the Panthers, Bills and Skins. The Cowboys are a dumpster fire without Romo. The Iggles (also a dumpster fire) must go 4-1 down the stretch. Their schedule features the Cardinals at home and the Pats in Foxborough. So that isn’t happening.

        That leaves the Gints and the Skins, arguably mediocre teams but not (in IMHO) dumpster fires. The Gints have the Jets, Panthers and Eagles at home, and visit the Dolphins and Vikings. I don’t see them doing better than 3-2 down the stretch. Three of those opponents have winning records. The Gints have been even streakier than usual this year, and they could surprise me.

        None of the Skins remaining games are against teams with winning records. On the other hand, the Skins have yet to win on the road, so if they have to go 8-8, they must win one of their remaining road games (Bears, Iggles, Cowboys). In the last two, I expect their opponents to be out of contention but looking to play the spoiler. The Skins remaining home games are against Dallas and the Bills. Winning both of these is critical.

        • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 12:45 PM

          On the other hand, the ‘skins could run the table and be 10-6.

        • captblood3000 - Dec 1, 2015 at 10:39 AM

          Their road games are all against teams with a knack for self-destruction. Rich discusses the Skins road woes in a future article. They’ve won over losing teams at home and lost to winning teams on the road. They haven’t faced losing teams on the road. They won’t need to win 3 of those games. 2 will be enough, and 1 should be enough if they win out at home.

          And this brings into focus how important Sunday’s game was. If the Gints had won they’d have a 2 game lead on the rest of the division, and the Gints finishing 2-3 would require the Skins or Iggles to finish 5-0 to overtake them.

          As for the Skins finishing 5-0? Let’s just say I like your attitude :-)

    • firesnyder - Nov 30, 2015 at 2:40 PM

      correction voice4thefans – our “daystiny” is in our own hands.

  5. hail74 - Nov 30, 2015 at 9:14 AM

    Love victory Monday’s tho it’s usually kinda quiet on here those days, weird. Next Monday presents another opportunity for this team to show us how much they’ve improved. Can they maintain momentum and beat a Dallas team that they should beat? I believe so. I like Goldsens praise of cousins but he also implies what a lot of us already thought, that cousins needs to accept the next challenge of being “the guy” and manage to rally the troops when things are bad.

    • brucefan1 - Nov 30, 2015 at 10:06 AM

      “Love victory Monda’s tho it’s kinda quiet on here those days”

      Think we did a lot of that crowing right after the game! Check the yesterday’s post’s comments. Some of us must plum tuckered out from our revelries and sleeping in this morning! It’s still early. They will show.

      (Anyway, it’s pretty well accepted that anger elicits a lot more commentary then satisfaction does, right? So maybe “quiet” is a good sign! .;^} )

      • hail74 - Nov 30, 2015 at 10:37 AM

        Actually I was implying that some specific posters were all over this board last Monday with their” I told you so”. I’m sure they’re just busy at the office today.

        • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 10:57 AM

          All that Turkey, stuffing, time off, travel, etc. They’re just being responsible today.

  6. Skulb - Nov 30, 2015 at 9:22 AM

    I love Tandler stats. And I love them even more after a win. Too bad all the haters will disappear for a while now though. No “fire Gruden” or “Captain Jitters” posts for me to laugh at for at least a week! And if they win against Dallas I might just go into hater withdrawal and have to sign myself up for rehab. As I’ve been saying all along Cousins is a budding top 10 QB and Jay Gruden can coach. HTTR!

    • hk2000 - Nov 30, 2015 at 9:50 AM

      Fire Gruden! No bandwagons here!!!! Fire Gruden!!!- even if they get to the play offs and beyond, I’d still be calling for the idiot to be fired.

      • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 10:32 AM

        What has the “idiot” done? Steal your wife? I just don’t understand why you hold so much hate for this guy.

        • hk2000 - Nov 30, 2015 at 12:01 PM

          No, he just stinks- Love the win, but that was not a coaching win- not by a long shot, and certainly not when your defense dominated the game, got you 3 turn overs and lots of stops and yet go a whole half w/o a single point scored- THAT is the offensive genius you all are hanging your hats on?

        • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 12:38 PM

          I had my issues with the in game coaching as well and they are documented above in the comments. Got three key points in the 2nd half. That was important may have felt like none because they left plenty of points on the field. Still, your reality seems to be bit out of whack. It’s not like you can just go down to where all the unemployed coaches hang out and hire the next Belichick. Dan Quinn had the Falcons at 5-0 and now is on the hot seat. You don’t divorce your wife because there COULD be someone better out there. Of course there is but she’s not going to want you. ;)

        • hk2000 - Nov 30, 2015 at 1:51 PM

          Yeah I missed the 3 points scored in the second half, but still, that 1st half looked like it was going to be another blowout of a very good offensive team, then the second half happened. I want to see 2 things: 1- play a complete WHOLE GAME against a good opponent, and 2- win 2 in a row against good opponents. Look I’m not qualified to predict who is going to be a great coach, but we have a GM who I think is capable of doing that. My issue with Gruden is not just qualms with his coaching, but his personality and character, you should know that by now.

        • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 1:57 PM

          Yes. I do know that by now. I also think Gruden handled the post game yesterday better than the 2nd half.

      • YOU LIKE THAT - Nov 30, 2015 at 11:50 AM

        YOU LIKE THAT? YOU FREAKING LOVE THAT…..HK 2000, You obviously aren’t a real fan. A disgrace at best, you are. This was a huge win from top to bottom. I love the attitude, and Monday night I will love seeing another nail in a cowgirl casket…HTTR

      • squawonthewarpath - Dec 1, 2015 at 7:54 AM

        I don’t think any of us fans believe Gruden is a great coach, but the team is rebuilding and most of us with clear vision will take stability over greatness during this process. This is, afterall, his first stint as a head coach in the NFL. While it hasn’t been smooth sailing no one can deny that there has not been progress and positive signs that this team is headed in a favorable direction. Anyone who expects a second year coach with new management and a developing team of young players to beat undefeated teams is delusional. I have observed through comments and opinions that most of the extreme Gruden haters are simply still upset with him over his decision to start Cousins’. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…Get over it, move on because the team certainly has.

    • brucefan1 - Nov 30, 2015 at 10:32 AM

        It’s “funny” how some posters just lump other posters into groups based on there opinion about one or two team issues but seldom know who is writing what exactly. Bruce, I can count on at least one hand of more bitter folks than you on here and almost finish a 2nd – and I don’t even consider yourself bitter. Perhaps all the LOLs and emojis don’t soften Skulb. He seems to be stilling “holding onto” (I wouldn’t say bitter, but isn’t that part of the definition) your diametrically opposed view on who should’ve started the season. Gosh. Some people. They don’t like folks that NOW like the band they’ve been singing praises about in the beginning. If you didn’t get back then, then get out. Must be all that lack of light in the UK.

          And like you say, most of my so-called “critical” stuff — and if a sports fan can’t be harmlessly critical (cuz really, who’s it hurt?!), who can?! — is posted with a wink and a laugh. Zero bitterness. Lotsa fun!

          Again, it’s sports fandom; we’re playing in the toy store of life here!! A few (no names) fail to remember not take all this badinage TOO seriously.

    This one was for Sean! HTTR! #21

  8. greed - Nov 30, 2015 at 11:12 AM

    ok good win skins httr! Joe barry finally made adjustments corners playing press coverage and a couple of timely blitzes defense led the way , two big plays on offense were just enough to win bomb to djax and screen to jones , cousins was ok almost threw the pick 6 that was dropped but was solid for most part bv the offense still only scored 3 pts in 2nd half almost cost us the game

    • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 11:29 AM

      I saw four down linemen (no blitzers) with seven in zone coverage – usually a Tampa two with the corners playing aggressive underneath. I expect to hear about the Cousins pick six that never was a few more times today. So in an effort to remain “balanced,” how many interceptions did we drop yesterday? Didn’t Breeland drop another and I think Perry Riley could’ve had another. On another note, didn’t Ereck Flowers get away with a massive hold on Preston Smith on the 4th and 16? So “nice” of the referee to throw the “holding flag” after Kerrigan gets the sack. Crowder was robbed his TD by the replay officials in New York (great place to do that). His Redskins gloved hand was clearly breaking the plane of the goal line WHILE holding (covering up) the tip of the ball. How was that irrefutable evidence? Was this what the replay official was thinking? Umm, the ball looks a few inches shorter but I don’t see it touching the goal line must be overturned. WTF?

      • skinsgame - Nov 30, 2015 at 12:25 PM

        Murphy had one in his hands as well. The dropped int by Breeland though… head scratcher there. I saw what looked to me like a 4-3 defense most of the day and the results were good. It helped that they were missing a couple linemen but even so, I liked seeing the changes to pressing coverage and another down lineman with some blitzes thrown in too. Schematically, there were changes yesterday and they aided in getting a victory over a talented offense and QB.

        • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 12:41 PM

          This defense plays better with a lead. That is clear. If we can jump out on teams with a double digit lead, that will help. Having said that, they were ready from the jump and allowed the offense to get their feet wet. Oh, and thanks for the Murphy reference. I knew it was an LB just blamed poor Perry.

      • ET - Nov 30, 2015 at 1:25 PM

        “On another note, didn’t Ereck Flowers get away with a massive hold on Preston Smith on the 4th and 16?”

        Yes! I forgot about that. What constitutes a “hold” can vary widely, to put it charitably.

        I do think the Crowder call was correct, though—or at least it wasn’t clear cut. In the sideline view replay, it looked to me like his knee touched before the ball broke the the goal-line plane.

        • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 2:01 PM

          Look, if you call Crowder in, you have to then have irrefutable evidence to the contrary. I agree the knee was down AND you couldn’t “see” the ball break the plane. But why? Because his gloved hand which is breaking the plane as the knee is down is obscuring the tip of the ball because he’s holding the front tip of the ball. If the call is made not in, I have no problem upholding THAT call.

        • bangkokben - Nov 30, 2015 at 2:04 PM

          My issue is that OUR team seems to have additional obstacles to overcome that could’ve tilted this game one-sided in favor of the home team’s. That did not happen last week in Charlotte. The home team got the benefit of some 50/50ish calls that could’ve kept the game close instead of tilt the field.

        • captblood3000 - Nov 30, 2015 at 2:35 PM

          When didn’t Newhouse hold Kerrigan?

        • ET - Nov 30, 2015 at 3:30 PM

          I agree about some of the calls—Kerrigan and Preston Smith were held a number of times. The Giants’ OL was getting away with a lot. One of the calls on Reed looked bad to me (#2? Can’t remember.) But I’m ok with the Crowder call …

      • greed - Nov 30, 2015 at 2:14 PM

        Do you have such a man crush on cousins that simple truthfull critisism of him disturbs you so much that you babble on in nonsense or are you just insecure and argumentive by nature? I stated cousins played a solid game! (fact) outside of a horrible stare down the reciever dropped pick 6(fact) that the cornerback broke on from the lockeroom , it wasnt tipped pass ,wrong route, pressure from blitz no just a horrible pass so what are u defending? 2nd k. Jarrett was used as a blitzer atleast twice which caught gmen offguard and barry had corners playing more press coverage than previous games(fact) and as far as holding goes that can be called on nearly every play if refs wanted, officiating has been subpar all around the leauge not just against skins in NY but everywhere so calm down and enjoy the win and being tied for firstplace

          No. I’m just sick of “Redskin” fans making notion of every near mistake by the QB as if no one saw them and as if only Cousins benefits from the defense’s butter fingers. It was a bad stare down but also good rout recognition and jump by the corner. Where am I defending this throw? If pointing out Eli’s mistakes and our defender’s inability to capitalize on them is defending Cousins poor throw, does that mean you’re defending Eli? Of course not. I am enjoying FIRST PLACE (there are tiebreakers for a reason) but are you?

          Cousins’ extended his career-best streak of games with a touchdown pass this season to 11 games. He is the first Redskins quarterback to open a season with a touchdown pass in 11 consecutive games since Pro Football Hall of Famer Sonny Jurgensen in 1967.

          Newhouse blatantly held Kerrigan on practically every passing down. He was called for holding only once, after Kerrigan had sacked Manning. Which begs the question: if there’s holding on every play, what is an acceptable rate for calling holding? Because a 0% called holding rate for Newhouse gives the Giants a considerable advantage.

    This was the best the defense played this year. Could not of asked for more. Even Dunbar got his first pic of his hopefully long career. If they bring the d again next week we will win. Now on the offense Gruden called a good game until the 4th Quarter. We should have went for the field goal to bring it to a 2 score game again. What Gruden did luckily worked but chalk that up to inexperience. Great game over all HTTR

    I think bangkokben said it – we rushed 4 all afternoon (ta-daaaa! finally – light bulb moment). Was this the first time we did that? I am not sure, but it was by far the MOST pressure we’ve generated all year. I kept thinking that the coaches would make an adjustment this way sooner or later, but it took them forever. We need to do this every game now. Preston and Ricky-Jean French-Guy can play. They need more snaps!!!

    I must quote the great Robert Burns for any of you English pros out there. “”The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men often go awry.” Meaning will this thing looks good it is not over yet. Do not let off the gas! We need this big divisional game on Monday Night Football vs. a Matt Cassel Offense. It all starts Monday Night!
    I thought the Giants game was Big, but hell this Monday Night game is freakin HUGE. Archives
