Redskins Defense Bottles Up Flacco and the Ravens in 16-10 Win in Baltimore

The Redskins abandoned their usual formula for victory — the passing of Kirk Cousins — to extend their winning streak to three. Washington used an 85-yard punt return by Jamison Crowder and an uncharacteristically strong performance by its defense to beat the Ravens 16-10 on Sunday. The Redskins (3-2) allowed 108 points in their first […]

Hopkins Five Field Goals Helps Redskins Earn First Win 29-27 Over Giants

All the Washington Redskins needed to avoid a dreaded 0-3 start was a couple of fourth-quarter interceptions by backups and five field goals from a guy who had never made that many in a game.

Redskins Fall to 0-2; Lose at Home to Cowboys 27-23

Discussing Dak Prescott after the rookie quarterback’s first NFL victory, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones managed to throw in references to folks such as Troy Aikman, Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger — QBs with nine Super Bowl victories combined.

Led by a huge day by quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Redskins laid a stomping Sunday of the New Orleans Saints at home, winning easily 47-14. How good was Cousins?

Redskins Rally Behind Cousins Second Half Rally, Top Bucs 31-30

Not many had faith that Kirk Cousins could pull it off, but Sunday after trailing at one point 24-0 to the Bucs, the QB turned it around in a big time way. Cousins and the Redskins rallied all day long, and in the end he threw a touchdown pass to Jordan Reed with 24 seconds […]

Redskins Can’t Hold Lead or Stop Landry in 17-10 Loss to Miami

Despite being beat up in the stats department, the Dolphins were able to go to their big play department Sunday, doing just enough to top the Redskins 17-10 in their season opener Sunday. Jarvis Landry returned a punt 69 yards for a touchdown with 10:22 left to give the Dolphins their first lead, and Miami […]

Redskins Shut Out By Rams 24-0 To Fall to 3-10

The Redskins did little to give their fans any hope on Sunday, as they were crushed at home in front of a sad crowd, falling to the Rams 24-0. The win gives the Rams back-to-back shutouts for the first time since 1945. Jared Cook caught two touchdown passes, Tavon Austin returned a punt 78 yards […]
