The NFC East leading Washington Redskins lost the game to the visiting Houston Texans, 23 – 21. A loss at this stage of the season is costly enough, but the Redskins also lost their starting quarterback to a horrible leg injury. Alex Smith broke his leg in an eerily similar manner to that of Joe Theismann…it was a terrible thing to see and unfortunately for the Redskins, Smith was lost for the season. The timing couldn’t have been worse with the Redskins playing the surprisingly resurgent Dallas Cowboys on a short week and on the road. But such is the life in the NFL. Next man up.
Let us turn our attention to something much more positive…the First Ladies of Football! Click here to see the Redskins gallery from last Sunday.
Whenever the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins play, there is something big on the line because these two teams have so much history together. This week, the division lead was at stake for both teams and given the fact that every team in the NFC East has multiple losses, the winner has the inside track to the playoffs…and the loser…well its unlikely that the runner up will get a wild card slot given the competitiveness of the division.
In game that was back and forth, the outcome was decided on a last second field goal attempt by Dallas kicker Brett Maher that bounced off the left upright. The Redskins endured and won the game, 20 – 17. With the victory, the Redskins take a 1 1/2 game lead over the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys.

The Washington Redskins hosted the Carolina Panthers in Week 6 of the regular season and in a tightly contested battle the underdog Redskins bested the visitors on the basis of two critical plays by their defense. Criticized earlier in the week by his teams, Redskins corner back Josh Norman provided the spark with an interception and a forced fumble. Alex Smith passed for 167 yards and two touchdowns and Adrian Peterson rushed for 97 yards on 17 carries to pace the Redskins to victory. Final score: Redskins – 23, Panthers – 17.

In Week 3 of the NFL regular season the Washington Redskins hosted the visiting Green Bay Packers. The story of the game was the continued resurgence of 33 year old running back Adrian Peterson, who led the Redskins to victory on the basis of his 120 rushing yards and two TDs. Alex Smith chipped in 2 passing TDs of his own to make the final score 31 – 17.

The Washington Redskins hosted the visiting Indianapolis Colts and as luck were have it, Andrew Luck threw for three touchdowns to reassure fans that he is well on his way back from injury. Unfortunately, that was bad news for the home town fans as the Redskins fell 21 – 9.
While that was indeed bad news for Redskins fans, the good news for them is that they still have the First Ladies of Football to keep them entertained. Click here to take a closer look at the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders.
Week 3 of the NFL Preseason is upon us and a new week of images are starting to be posted on the team web sites. We begin our coverage with the First Ladies of Football. Click here to view this week’s gallery of images.
I play fantasy football (two time defending champions…yeah, baby!) and I like to watch a lot of preseason football to try to glean a bit of intel regarding the upcoming season…for example, how will new QB Alex Smith fit in D.C. or what are the prospects of rookie RB Derrius Guice. Well the jury is still out on Smith, but I think I have all I need to know about Guice…more specifically, Guice’s knee…sorry Redskins fans.
Well there wasn’t a lot to learn in Week 2…there never is, except for S.E.I.’s, but one thing I learned is that the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders are in mid-season form. And if you don’t believe me, click here to see for yourself.
