Football games usually boil down to taking advantage of opportunities that are presented to a team. Those opportunities may be obvious on the stat sheet, or they may only be apparent on film, but they’re almost always there.
Yesterday, the Redskins had opportunities to take the early lead and weren’t able to capitalize. The defense kept them in the game until late, but a failed opportunity at the start of the fourth quarter sealed it for the Redskins.
With 12 minutes left in the game, the Redskins had driven down to the Dolphins ... Read More …

When the Redskins announced their youth movement out of training camp, it wasn’t really that profound of a statement. Yes, the team would have a lot of younger players on the roster, but the core group of starters had plenty of experience, especially on offense.
Halfway through the season, injuries and performance have forced changes to the starting lineups, and the result is a much different—much younger—Redskins lineup.
Yesterday marked the first career starts of running back Roy Helu and offensive guard Maurice Hurt. It was the second career start of receiver Leonard ... Read More …

Welcome to our newest feature of WOW's Football Friday - Fan Stories! Terry Brown shares her favorite Redskins memory below...

On January 10, 1983, my brother, Mike, and I camped out in front of RFK for playoff tickets to the game against the Vikings. (I had already stood in line ... Read More …

There isn’t much to hang your hat on after a 23-0 shutout on the road. The team didn’t do any of the things that made it a winner in the first two weeks of the season, and the Redskins have slid to last place tie in the NFC East.
One of the few highlights of yesterday’s game, was that the Redskins limited the Bills to 23 points. That’s almost nine points fewer than their season average, and certainly left the offense with the opportunity to stay in the game.
The play ... Read More …
