    Five keys to the Redskins-Chargers game plus a prediction. 1. The Chargers are 23rd in the league in total defense but they are ninth in points allowed.

    No question about it, the Broncos battered Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III during the course of their game last Sunday.

    RG3-Morris-vs-Bears

    My six pack of observations from the Washington Redskins’ 45-41 win over the Bears on Sunday: 1. The Redskins’ defense was not good yesterday but it was not as bad as it looked. There is no reason to celebrate giving up 41 points, 140 yards on the ground and to have Josh McCown, who last…

    Forbath-FG

    Five game keys plus a Bears-Redskins prediction: 1. The Redskins need to be very afraid of kick returner Devin Hester but the numbers suggest that the Bears’ special teams may be slowing him down themselves. Yes, Hester is averaging over 30 yards per return but he hasn’t been impressive in the “what have you done…

    RG3-running-vs-NYG

    Robert Griffin III rushed for 77 yards against the Cowboys after having gained 72 yards on the ground in the Washington Redskins’ first four games. But, in reality, the Redskins got over 100 yards out of Griffin’s legs last Sunday. That is because the Cowboys were hit with 15-yard penalties for hitting Griffin when he…

  21. Monday six pack: Reed disappears from offense in second half

    Oct 14, 2013, 10:54 AM EDT

    Jordan-Reed-vs-Cowboys

    My six pack of observations on Redskins-Cowboys: —If you glance at the stat sheet it looks like Alfred Morris had a pretty respectable game against the Cowboys with 81 yards rushing on 16 carries. But 45 of those yards came on one touchdown run. It’s not as though the 45-yard run doesn’t “count”; it was…

    RG3-stiff-arm-Dallas

    The Robert Griffin III of 2012 was back for some of the game on Sunday night in Dallas. Unfortunately, he wasn’t there consistently enough or for long enough to keep the Washington Redskins from falling to the Cowboys 31-16 and dropping to 1-4 on the season. The Redskins now trail the Cowboys and Eagles, both…
