Lowly Vikings trip up Redskins 33-26
Mistakes, penalties plague Washington’s 10th loss of the season
“I don’t think this was our best week of practice, but at the same time, you can’t account for a running back, quarterback going down,” nose tackle Barry Cofield. “They bring in Webb; we had prepared for him a little bit, but it just brings a new dynamic to the game.”
Although there were numerous culprits in this loss, Young put the blame entirely on his shoulders.
Later, with 8:06 remaining and the Redskins trailing 30-23, Young held defensive end Jared Allen’s leg on an end-around to Banks. Banks raced around the left edge of the defense, down the sideline and into the stands, all for naught.
“It’s no positives to it, but you can learn from it and try not to do those things,” the second-year fullback said. “I cost the team the game, and I’ve got to face the responsibility and take up for everything that happened. Hopefully next week I can overcome it — if I have a chance next week.”
The Redskins‘ chances, of course, ran out long ago.
“You can’t beat yourself,” Shanahan said.
