Saturday

ND 41, Miami 3. ND 21, BC 6. ND 38, Wake Forest 0. Total: 100-9 (3 FG). Yeah, the #Irish should have a swell time in the #ACC#NotreDame

#Maryland and #Rutgers would be the Big Ten’s “path to the sea.” Didn’t a presidential candidate use that expression recently? #Terps

Sunday

At FedEx Field, where the #Redskins stand a good chance of holding the #Eagles to fewer than 59 points. #NFL

One of #Redskins‘ more interesting personnel decisions this year was to use their 1 free IR reactivation on LS Nick Sundberg. Active today.

Hard not to see this #Redskins#Eagles matchup as an elimination game. Loser pretty much toast at 3-7. Washington goes up 7-0 early. #NFL

Unusual: Last 2 #Eagles completions went for 20 + 25 yards, + the pass didn’t cross the line of scrimmage either time. Screens. #Redskins

One argument for not deferring when you win the coin toss: The #Eagles‘ time of possession in the first quarter was 12:12. #Redskins #NFL

#RG3: 4 for 4 passing with 2 TDs (6, 49). Guess the bye week was good for him. Totally on top of his game. #Redskins 14-3. #Eagles #NFL

Love it when a punter aggressively makes a tackle, as Rocca just did. Like he’s saying: “Don’t mess with my net average.” #Redskins #Eagles

Is it just me, or are we seeing some Early Flacco from Nick Foles today? #Redskins #Eagles #NFL

Between the penalties, drops and defensive brain cramps, these #Eagles are a mess. #Redskins #NFL

A 14-point halftime lead for the #Redskins (17-3). No small thing. From 2008 through 2010, they didn’t have ANY 14-point halftime leads.

Foles just had one of those “I seem to have dropped my keys” sack-fumbles. Spins around looking for ball. #Eagles recover. #Redskins #NFL

The #Redskins‘ best 3rd down play today has been: “Snap the ball to #RG3. He’ll think of something.” 23-yard scramble on 3rd-and-14. #Eagles

#Eagles called for hands-to-the-face penalty on #RG3‘s 61-yard TD to Moss. Maybe the guy was covering his OWN eyes. #Redskins #NFL

#RG3 now has TD passes of 49, 61 yards. The last time a #Redskins QB threw for 2 scores of 40+ yds in a game: 10-1-06. http://bit.ly/zuhJYC

#RG3‘s passer rating is 158.3 basically because it can’t be any higher than that. No extra credit in the #NFL#Redskins #Eagles

Another scoring pass for #RG3, making this the 4th 4-TD day for a #Redskins QB in the Snyder Era (Johnson ‘99, Brunell ‘05, Grossman ‘10).

How many drops have the #Eagles had today? They might want to borrow some towels from the #Chargers#Redskins #NFL

#Redskins 31-6. If the #Eagles keep playing like this, Santa Claus won’t be safe on Dec. 23 at Lincoln Financial Field. #NFL

#RG3 is the first rookie QB since (at least) 1960 to post a perfect 158.3 passer rating. Big Ben put up a 158 vs. JAX in 2004. #Redskins

FYI: Griffin was perfect, rating-wise, in his 10th #NFL start. Roethlisberger was near-perfect in his … yes, 10th pro start. #Redskins

Vs. IND, Julian Edelman became just 3rd #NFL player since ‘60 w/ PR TD (68 yds), rec. TD (2 yds) and 40-yd run (47 yds) in same game. #Pats

The company Edelman keeps: #Dolphins‘ Freddie Solomon, ‘76 vs. BUF (79/53/59) and #Bears HOFer Gale Sayers, ‘65 vs. SF (85/80/50). #Pats

#Falcons‘ Matt Ryan threw 5 INTs in a win today. Only 2 QBs have done that in last 25 years. One was Mark Rypien vs. #Bears in ‘90. #Redskins

Here’s the box of Rypien’s game. Note the opposing quarterback: current #Niners coach Jim Harbaugh. http://bit.ly/10bSe5j #Redskins #Bears

Monday

Which was the bigger surprise: (a.) Maryland moving to the Big Ten; (b.) That, um, thing they revealed in “The Crying Game.” #Terps

I’m pretty sure Pierre Garcon leads the #NFL in pizza commercials per touchdown. #Redskins

The McCowns are the Mike-Mayers of quarterbacking. Or maybe the Grammaticas. Can’t decide. #Bears #49ers #NFL

Thursday

Greetings from #Cowboys Stadium, where the #Redskins will do their darnedest not to get Longleyed today on Thanksgiving. #NFL

Other #NFL teams played on Turkey Day in the ‘20s before the #Lions established the tradition. The Frankford Yellow Jackets, for instance.

The Providence Steam Roller also played on Thanksgiving in the early days. Why not? People were off from work. You could draw a crowd. #NFL

2012 #Redskins have already had 5 turnover-free games (with 6 games to go). That ties the franchise record (‘99 and ‘08 teams also did it).

The ‘82 #Redskins also had 5 turnover-free games, but 2 came in playoffs. (They played only 13 games total, though, so let’s include them.)

The #Redskins, by the way, have committed just 9 turnovers in their first 10 games. That ties the franchise low (‘83, ‘06, ‘08). #NFL

#Redskins + #Cowboys have announced their inactives. In a little while, we’ll learn who the UNofficial inactives are, if you get my drift.

Only two #Redskins teams have gone 3 straight games without a turnover — the current one (the last 3 games) + the ‘08 edition (Games 3-5).

Wish they had #NFL records for a 5-day period (Sunday/Thursday). Andre Johnson has 424 receiving yards and counting (273/151). #Texans

#Cowboys crowd boos the #Redskins as they run on the field. I mean, unless it’s just acid indigestion. #NFL

#NFL should have a new rule: If both kickers miss FGs in OT, the teams have to play until there’s a winner. As punishment. #Lions #Texans

You can’t like how the #Redskins are protecting #RG3 in the early going. Gotta tighten it up. #Cowboys #NFL

This is encouraging for the #Redskins: Garcon looking more functional than he did last week, in his first game back. Can he be a factor?

#RG3 didn’t even look like he was throwing the ball that far on that 68-yard bomb to Robinson. Just flicked it. 7-3, #Redskins#Cowboys

#Redskins might want to work that into their offense: Have a receiver get penalized for a false start, then throw him a long TD pass. #NFL

28 2nd-quarter points for the #Redskins. The only bigger 2nd quarter in their history was 35 points vs. Denver in Super Bowl 22. #NFL

#RG3’s passer rating went up from 101 to 104.6 today, for those of you wondering. #Redskins #Cowboys #NFL

#RG3 is only the 2nd modern (since ‘60) #Redskins QB to throw 8 TD passes in a 2-game stretch. Mark Rypien also did it in the ‘91 SB season.

3 other modern #Redskins QBs have thrown 7 TD passes over 2 games: Sonny Jurgensen (‘64, ‘67), Joe Theismann (‘84) and Trent Green (‘98).

First Hurricane Sandy, now #Patriots 35, #Jets 0 (2nd quarter). Tough times for New Yorkers. #NFL

The #Patriots had a 31-pt 4th quarter vs. #Bills earlier this season. Now they’ve rung up 35 in the 2nd vs. #Jets. Anybody ever done that?

Friday

#Pats have scored 190 points in last 4 games. Only 2 #NFL teams have scored more in 4-game stretch: ‘50 Rams (208), ‘48 #Cardinals (195).

‘50 #Rams‘ best two-game total was 135 (70/65). ‘48 #Cardinals‘ best was 112 (63/49). #Pats have put up 108 (59/49) in past 2 weeks. #NFL

Keep waiting for the #NHL to announce: “We’ve also decided to cancel the 2013 preseason, the 2014 Winter Classic + selected games in 2015.”
