The defense struggled to stop both the run and the pass, while the offense had a tough time simply catching the football and making the plays it needed to keep up with the quick-paced Pittsburgh offense. The result was a 27-12 Redskins loss at Heinz Field.
The Redskins' three scoring drives ended in two field goals and a touchdown. The touchdown drive featured a gutsy play call on fourth down that was two yards from the ... Read More

This week’s game takes us to Pittsburgh – and who can’t help but think about a delicious Primanti Brothers Sandwich! For those who have not had the scrumptious pleasure – imagine your favorite deli sandwich, topped with fries and coleslaw. The complete deal – but maybe just a little filling…
Our healthy twist on this favorite is a flank steak in a simple, yet flavorful Asian-style marinade, paired with spicy sweet coleslaw. While here at Dinner Matters, we don’t normally make this into a sandwich – we think that the thinly sliced steak, on a soft ... Read More

Around The Water Cooler: Redskins Lose To Giants, 27-23
The Washington Redskins yesterday were one minute and 13 seconds away from escaping with a thrilling, last-minute win over the defending Super Bowl champions. But New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning had other plans, and his 77-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Victor Cruz provided the dagger in the Redskins’ 27-23 loss to the Giants in front of 81,352 fans at MetLife Stadium.
Had it not been for Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III’s heroics just more than one minute prior to that Giants touchdown, however, Washington would’ve ... Read More
