Redskins quarter-by-quarter breakdown
What happened: A penalty got in the Redskins’ way early, with a holding call bringing back a long Campbell run, but the Lions answered with an encroachment call. On first-and-long, Campbell threw deep into double coverage to Malcolm Kelly but missed; Washington followed that play with a delay-of-game penalty. Fortunately for Washington, the Lions went three-and-out on the ensuing drive; Hunter Smith had the ball for Washington four plays after that. Chris Horton’s pass interference call on Bryant Johnson on a deep pass put the Lions in position to score, which they did on a toss sweep two plays later. Washington answered with the no-huddle shotgun offense and scored quickly on a pass to Rock Cartwright, of all people. But the Redskins couldn’t get it going again when they got ball back with 1:05 left, and despite an entertaining hook-and-ladder play, Detroit held on for the win.
Analysis: Well, that’s one way to steal some national headlines, but it’s probably not the way the Redskins wanted to do it. Again the offense looked best when it was in hurry-up mode, but the Lions’ prevent defense had a lot to do with that. Expect the NFL to get a report from the Redskins on the disputed face-mask call after a Moss reception; he was clearly brought down by the face mask, but the official farther away from the play overruled another official. But that’s the least of Washington’s worries at this point.
BY THE NUMBERS
5 300-yard passing games in Campbell’s career. He picked up 140 of his 340 yards Sunday in the fourth quarter.
