The Redskins started strong against the Giants, but a special teams blunder changed the momentum of the game, and eventually Washington fell to 3-9.
On Thursday, in a 34-27 road loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Redskins were humiliated by a botched fake punt attempt in the third quarter that was negated by a penalty, then were left with an 11-yard net gain on the ensuing try. It was the fifth time in six games the Redskins have had a miscue on special teams.
For the second time in three weeks, the Washington Redskins' offense was cruising with running back Alfred Morris doing much of the heavy lifting. Morris topped 100 rushing yards for the third time this season, but it wasn't enough in a crushing 34-27 loss at woeful Minnesota, which had won just one game entering Thursday's contest.
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 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.
Five questions Redskins beat writer Brian McNally has heading into Washington’s Sunday afternoon game against the Detroit Lions:
The Washington strong safety started his first regular season game in nearly 10 months Sunday and had to leave in the second quarter against the Green Bay Packers with a concussion.
Kory Lichtensteiger played off and on through a sprained left ankle in the Washington Redskins' NFC East-clinching victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, and the left guard hopes to be able to go when the playoffs begin in a week.
Kai Forbath keeps making field goals for the Washington Redskins, and Sunday he broke an NFL record.
A quick recap of the Redskins' 27-20 victory over the Eagles.
Robert Griffin III wanted to play.
Quick recap of the Redskins' 38-21 win over the Browns.
Everybody fumbles. That's the message from Washington Redskins fullback Darrel Young when he's asked about rookie Alfred Morris putting the ball on the ground.
The pain pulsing through Robert Griffin III's sprained right knee late Sunday afternoon prevented the franchise quarterback from performing his magic when the Washington Redskins needed it most.
FedEx Field erupted, but the chants weren't of "RG3." Robert Griffin III was on the trainer's table getting his injured right knee looked at. He had taken the Washington Redskins so far and essentially had to be dragged off the field.
"You move on after any kick. It's on to the next one," said Forbath, who hit a key 47-yarder with 6:59 left to put the Redskins up by 10 points. "No point in worrying about the last one. So, I mean, I made the next one, and we're going from there now."
"I look at it now, we got the miss out of the way, I'd rather have it now than next week," Forbath said. "I'm coming back just as confident as I was coming into this game."
