From Walter Football
It’d be great if we could see an excellent game between the Cowboys and the Redskins, but unfortunately, Washington seems to be at a competitive disadvantage because of the scheduling. For some reason, the NFL thought it would be a good idea for the Redskins to play on a Sunday night and then travel to kick off an afternoon game just four days later.
It’s OK Walter. It’s Dallas. We go this.
Like it or not, the Redskins may be the sexiest of all of the teams right now. You can’t possibly disagree the baked mac and cheese casserole is the sexiest on the menu, can you?
Why wouldn’t we like it?
In the fourth quarter, Jay Gruden had his team go for it on fourth down which led to a touchdown, putting the Redskins up two scores. This led to their victory because it made it impossible for Aaron Rodgers to make a comeback.
That fourth down call was so pivotal and not talked about nearly enough.
The Redskins whipped the Packers in front of a national audience. Washington is 6-1-1 since starting 0-2 and looks like a tough out in the postseason.
Washington is above .500 despite having 11 players on injured reserve and two players under NFL suspension (one of them All-Pro left tackle Trent Williams).
