Kyle Shanahan off limits until Redskins’ season is over
Sunday night’s victory over Dallas drew a raucous crowd of 82,845.
“Had a couple games there where it was Giants and Ravens where they had a lot of fans, man. I was disappointed, but our fans were strong today,” nose tackle Barry Cofield said. “Hopefully, they’ll be strong again next week.”
The Redskins‘ 28-18 victory drew an 18.3 overnight rating and 30 share, breaking NBC’s previous regular-season prime-time record set during Week 1 between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos.
The rating in Washington (44.6 rating, 68 share) is the highest ever in this market for a prime-time game. The Nielsen Company began tracking ratings in 1987.
The national rating also was the best for a Redskins-Cowboys game in 19 years.
• Third cornerback Cedric Griffin will return to practice this week. He completed his four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
• Mike Shanahan said he’ll gauge Griffin’s condition in practices before determining whether to move him from the reserve/suspended list to the active roster. Griffin, at 6-foot, is Washington’s second-tallest cornerback.
• The Redskins‘ opponents for the 2013 season were set after Sunday night’s win.
Washington will host: Dallas, New York Giants, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Kansas City and San Diego.
Washington will visit: Dallas, New York Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Denver and Oakland.
Dates and times for the games won’t be determined until April.
