For the second straight game Robert Griffin III and the Redskins fell short. This time it came on an inexplicable pass by the second year quarterback.
Once again the Washington Redskins dug themselves a hole that they could not escape. They came close on Sunday afternoon against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. But a fourth-quarter rally ended in the arms of Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin in the Philadelphia end zone.
Griffin didn't look superhuman. Instead, he looked like a second-year player months removed from a major knee injury who watched the four preseason games from the sideline.
The first punch thrown at Riley Cooper since it became known he made a racial remark didn't come from an opponent, but a teammate.
Riley Cooper, who left the Philadelphia Eagles for three days in training camp after a video of him making a racial slur surfaced on the Internet, got into a scuffle with Cary Williams at practice Thursday.
Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes, extending his NFL record streak to 51 games, and Patrick Robinson returned an interception 99 yards for a score to lead the New Orleans Saints to a much-needed win, 28-13 over Michael Vick and the reeling Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.
Georgia not only lost the game. The No. 19 Bulldogs also will be without a key defensive player for at least a month.
When A.J. Green soars for one of those amazing catches _ you know, the ones where the Georgia receiver seems to defy gravity _ he'll stroll back to the huddle like it's no big deal.
"We know we're a good team and that we'll be able to bounce back," said defensive back Brandon Boykin, who went 80 yards for a touchdown against the Broncos on the first offensive carry of his career.
"People are gonna talk and say what they want to say," cornerback Brandon Boykin said. "That's part of the game. Ultimately, we know that we've got to go out there, take care of our business and win games. The rest will take care of itself."
