    K.C. tragedy raises specter of Sean Taylor slaying

    When Sean Taylor went full-speed in practice, that included hitting his Washington Redskins teammates like he did opponents in games. But not tight end Chris Cooley, his friend with whom he talked to every day.

  • In Obama vs. Romney, Redskins elect to talk it out

    Lorenzo Alexander's life was simpler four years ago. He did not have a family of five. He did not own a pilates studio in Ashburn, and he did not have a strong foothold professionally as a co-captain of the Washington Redskins.

    At 3-5, Redskins' season close to slipping away

    When a team plays like the Washington Redskins did Sunday at the Pittsburgh Steelers, the result is predictable.

  • Redskins' defense miffed by Steelers' diverse offense

    The Washington Redskins' defense knew exactly what to expect from the Pittsburgh Steelers' offense. No longer a run-it-down-your-throat team, the Steelers feature a heavy dose of Ben Roethlisberger throwing to a variety of weapons.

    Redskins seek to rattle Steelers' Roethlisberger

    The bigger Ben is, the harder he falls. That's the Washington Redskins' mentality going into Sunday's game against Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers. They know what the two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback can do when given time, so there's an emphasis on not just pressuring him but knocking him to the Heinz Field turf.

    Redskins relieved home skid is behind them

    It was such an unfamiliar sight: Washington Redskins fans streaming out of FedEx Field happy Sunday. They hadn't done that since Sept. 18, 2011, a home skid of eight games.

    Lorenzo Alexander proved special on defense, too

    Lorenzo Alexander is no lightweight within the Washington Redskins' locker room. The special teams ace is a captain and leader, though normally he's relied on in a niche role and to speak for the team as a whole.
