"We know the type of offense that we are. We haven't been showing it all year, but we are a high-powered offense like we were last year," Morris said. "Sometimes, we don't get it done the way we should get it done. Whether it's penalties, whether it's mistakes, whether it's a lack of execution — whatever it is, that's the type of offense we are."
Darrel Young ran for three touchdowns, including one with 8:59 remaining in overtime, as Washington Redskins defeated the San Diego Chargers 30-24 on Sunday at FedEx Field.
It was perhaps the unlikeliest of victories for the Redskins, whose defense faced first-and-goal on its own 1-yard line with 21 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Now, by virtue of their triumph, they’ll head into a Thursday night road game against the hapless Minnesota Vikings with a win behind them.
It was the game of Darrel Young's life. The genial fullback doesn't get much attention. The Redskins have so many other options at the skill positions, after all. But on Sunday afternoon against the San Diego Chargers, Young made a difference in a 30-24 overtime victory at FedEx Field.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan talked about Alfred Morris and Helu providing "a pretty good one-two punch," but the team's rushing attack is back to being three-pronged. The renewed involvement of quarterback Robert Griffin III is the third prong and, Helu agreed, the facet that makes it all work.
A suspect Washington defense's ability to contain Cowboys QB Tony Romo tops Brian McNally's list of questions heading into the Sunday-night showdown.
"When you really look at it, we're behind on the scoreboard, so we have to pass more," Morris said. "I haven't had that many carries as I did last year. It's not that teams know who I am. They do know that, but at the same time, I'm not getting that many carries. As long as we win, I can't care less."
The performance of Robert Griffin III in the first two weeks is what makes fantasy football so silly to many of those who don't play it and so frustrating to some of those who do (especially those who already have lost a matchup against him).
During Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers, he was just 6 of 13 passing in the first half for 107 yards and one interception. Griffin turned it up in the second half for the second straight week, but the Redskins were already down 31-0 at that point.
