The Washington Redskins on Sunday visited the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. While the Redskins were able to find ways to beat the Colts at times, they ultimately fell by a final of 49-27.
The offense was led by quarterback Colt McCoy who was making his second start of the season. McCoy really hit his stride late in the second quarter, finding running back Roy Helu Jr. for a 21-yard score just before halftime.
Then in the second half, the Texas product would connect with tight end Logan Paulsen and wide receiver DeSean Jackson for touchdowns.
McCoy would finish ... Read More

For Redskins fans, there is nothing quite as sweet as a Redskins victory in Dallas.
So today, as we think about what we are thankful for, we cannot forget what a big win in Dallas it was 2 years ago today.
With the Cowboys coming into the game 5-5, they were gunning for the win. But the Redskins had something else in-store and surprised the world with their rookie quarterback and a 38-31 victory on Thanksgiving Day.
Happy #ThrowbackThursday, Redskins Nation!
And Happy Thanksgiving! Read More

I'm hosting my usual Thanksgiving celebration for over 20 friends and family members.
When I prepare my shopping list, search for recipes and scour the supermarket circulars, I am always amazed at all the warnings about what foods to serve—and what not to serve! Many items are promoted as “100% natural,” “organic” or “chemical free,” implying that anything that is the opposite is unhealthy.
