Kai Forbath told Sav Rocca he had a “feeling” that Sunday’s Washington Redskins game against the Baltimore Ravens would come down to a field goal. That’s just because it hadn’t happened for him so far.
Left tackle Trent Williams went one further: He dreamed up what would happen at FedEx Field.
“I dreamed it was an overtime [game],” Williams said.
Then what happened?
“We won,” he said with a smile, shortly after the 31-28 victory over the Baltimore Ravens that propelled the Redskins to 7-6.
Asked by a reporter about his dream, Williams joked: “Look at you, man, eavesdropping on my dreams and stuff.”
Reality didn’t quite match up with Williams’ dream perfectly. Sunday, quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a right knee injury on the final drive of regulation and needed to be replaced by Kirk Cousins.
Was that part of Williams’ dream?
“No, definitely not,” he said.
Still, it was a happy ending, for now. The Redskins are above .500 in December for the first time since Dec. 30, 2007. A team spokesman on Sunday night said Griffin’s MRI was “all clear” but deferred to coach Mike Shanahan to provide further details at his Monday news conference.
“We’re happy that we won, obviously, but that is concerning, knowing that he went down,” Williams said. “Everyone wants to know how he’s doing and what’s the exact injury. Time will tell.”
