The former Redskins coach, appearing Sunday on ESPN, said that Griffin can still be the team’s franchise quarterback, but that he needs to improve his preparation in order to be successful.
Jackson had four catches for 126 yards to help lead the Redskins past the Philadelphia Eagles, with whom he spent the first six seasons of his professional career.
Breeland intercepted Sanchez with 1:31 remaining, snagging a ball intended for wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and allowing the Redskins’ offense to traverse 50 yards for a go-ahead and game-winning field goal.
Rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland’s interception leads to Kai Forbath’s go-ahead field goal, and Washington snaps a six-game losing streak by defeating Philadelphia.
Williams, the Redskins’ starting left tackle, was considered questionable to play in the game, while Robinson, the starting mike linebacker, was listed as doubtful and will miss his third consecutive game.
Five questions facing the Redskins as they host the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday:
Williams, the Redskins’ starting left tackle, was unable to practice on Wednesday but returned to practice, albeit in a limited fashion, on Thursday. Meriweather, the starting strong safety, was placed on injured reserve.
Jordan Todman juked one defender and stiff-armed another on his way to a 62-yard touchdown run that helped the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Tennessee Titans 21-13 on Thursday night.
Jones was an overlooked third-string quarterback just four months ago. Now the third-year sophomore is the central figure in a Buckeyes’ offense heading into the national semifinal game against Alabama at the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1.
Beckham is certainly a contender headed into his game at St. Louis on Sunday, based on his last 10 games. If he wins rookie of the year honors, he’d be the first Giants player to win the award.
Thompson, the second-year running back, is among several unproven players who have gotten an opportunity to play for the Redskins in the final month of the season, but those chances have almost exclusively come as the result of an injury to someone else.
Good luck to all of those playing for fantasy football titles this week. For the rest of us, whose thoughts have shifted from what was to what will be, my team-by-team thoughts with an eye on 2015.
