The Washington Redskins brought both intensity and offensive firepower to Philadelphia for their Week 3 matchup against the Eagles, but ultimately fell by a final decision of 37-34.
Headlining this NFC East tilt was the return of wide receiver DeSean Jackson to the place that he called home for his first six NFL seasons.
Jackson, known for his elusiveness and game-changing speed, reminded Philadelphia just how potent he can be in the third quarter, dashing past the Eagles’ defense for an 81-yard score.
It was his first touchdown as a Redskin.
In the first quarter, quarterback Kirk Cousins – making his ... Read More

I am sure you ALL watched the Redskins win against the Jaguars. If you are like me, as much as you want to celebrate the victory, you can’t help but look at the cost.
I couldn't help but think that the injuries sustained by both RGIII and Desean Jackson line up perfectly with our Moms Football Safety Clinic we hosted last Friday. While the odds of making it to the NFL are slim (only 0.2% of High School players will ever see the NFL!) injuries are still a huge concern no matter ... Read More

Cousins entered the game in the first quarter after quarterback Robert Griffin III left due to injury.
After Young recorded the first touchdown of the day, running back Alfred Morris followed it up with two straight 1-yard touchdown runs.
Morris finished the day with ... Read More

The Washington Redskins finished off their preseason slate of games with a 24-10 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014.
With head coach Jay Gruden wanting to see the depth of his team before finalizing the 53-man roster this weekend, Redskins listed on the second- and third-teams on the unofficial depth chart got extensive work against a Buccaneer squad that will visit FedExField later this year during the regular season.
Offensively, veteran quarterback Colt McCoy manned the huddle the entire game and was effective throughout the night, hitting various ... Read More
