Smoot, however, denied that Dolphins receiver Chris Chambers got the better of him.

“They weren’t picking on me, Smoot said. They can’t throw deep, so they were going to throw hitches. Chambers is a good mixture of physical and athletic. I don’t have to talk about how high he can jump. He can run. We came out [of college] together, so we had to jaw at each other. I won, so I guess I get the last laugh.

Suisham gets his kick:Shaun Suisham had never made a game-winning kick, not in high school, not in college, not in the pros.

Yesterday, the Canadian kicker booted a 39-yarder in overtime to give the Redskins a 16-13 victory.

I have never attempted a game-winner, said Suisham, who signed as a free agent late last season after the Redskins cut Nick Novak. After years and years of talking about it in practice and working towards it, I couldn’t be more excited.

The 25-year-old Bowling Green product finished a perfect 3-for-3 yesterday, also connecting on attempts from 36 and 44 yards.

Redskins coaches have so much confidence in Suisham that they chose to attempt the game-winning field goal on first down at the Dolphins‘ 22.

Once we get the ball inside the 30, we have all the confidence he is going to go out there and make the kick because he does it every day in practice, Campbell said.

Fox hurt, too: Other than offensive tackle Jon Jansen’s dislocated ankle, the Redskins reported only one injury, a strained groin by Vernon Fox. The backup safety said he’ll be fine.

Former starters don’t dress: The Redskins listed as inactive quarterback Mark Brunell, cornerback David Macklin, tight end Cody Boyd (neck), receiver Shaun Bodiford, offensive tackle Todd Wade, defensive tackles Lorenzo Alexander and Ryan Boschetti and running back Marcus Mason.
