The second positive for the Redskins is the offense buckled down in the second half and scored on both trips inside the 20-yard line. On those drives, the running game did all of the work once in the red zone.

“Just execution,” Smith said. “All the time, it’s been about us, not what the defense is doing. A breakdown here and there - everybody took their turn. In the second half, guys punched it in, and we made plays. Santana and those guys made the catches, Jason made some nice throws, the line blocked it well and our backs did a good job.”

Said tight end Todd Yoder: “It was very frustrating because we know how important it is to not score touchdowns. We knew in the second half we had to put touchdowns up to stay in the game and then come back.”

Moving the ball wasn’t a problem for the Redskins. They gained 455 yards, moving them up to 11th in the NFL. Campbell had one of his best games, completing 24 of 36 passes for 321 yards.

Now the objective for Campbell is to gain consistency and for the offense to make defenses play inside the 20.

“We liked his improvement,” Zorn said. “He just needs to continue improving. Now we want to put these things back to back and see him play even better in weeks to come.”
