Redskins Looking For Redemption Sunday Against The Cardinals


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

There isn’t a playoff position on the line for the Redskins; nor for the Cardinals. For all intents and purposes, this is a meaningless NFL football game. Bookmakers still have the Redskins betting odds this week as four point favorites, but it remains to be seen if the “home field” advantage will amount to much.

To be accurate, the Cardinals do technically have a mathematical chance of making the playoffs, but Venus has to align with Mars, while the Sun eclipses both. Arizona are 6-7 and while there are still scenarios that can be laid out that see them make the playoffs, they aren’t likely to happen. They are two full games back, with for to go, and there are 6 teams ahead of them vying for those last two Wild Card berths. Not going to happen.

The Redskins are already out and this week started to shut some things down. Jordan Reed was finally put on the injured reserve after six consecutive weeks on the inactive list. Conventional wisdom says that he will still be a Redskin in 2018, but that remains to be seen. As incredibly talented a player as the tight end obviously is, he spends as much time on the inactive list or injured reserve, as he does on the field. Read the rest of this entry »

Redskins Face Chargers With Mostly Pride To Play For


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

The Washington Redskins and the Los Angeles Chargers are two teams going in opposite directions. Washington have lost five of their last seven and have seen their playoff chances dwindle down to a mere small mathematical possibility. The Chargers on the other hand, have won six of their last eight, and are very much in the playoff picture. As such, the Redskins betting odds for his week have them just shy of a touchdown road dogs.

Despite there only being a game between the two teams in overall record, the 6-6 Chargers still very much have something left to play for. They come into the matchup as the 7th seed, just one game (and slot) out of the playoffs. They sit behind the 7-5 Jaguars and Ravens, who hold the 5th and 6th seeds respectively, and more importantly, the two AFC Wild Card positions. However, the Chargers are also tied with the Chiefs atop the division with the Chiefs holding the tiebreaker (and 4th seed) currently – so not only is a Wild Card still a possibility, but so is winning the AFC West.

Humiliating Loss To Cowboys Puts An End to the Redskins Playoff Hopes


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

It was supposed to be an epic battle between two teams fighting for a playoff berth – it ended up being one team fighting for that chance. The Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys squared off on Thursday Night, and a nationwide audience watched the Redskins get spanked 38-14 at AT&T Stadium. The loss dropped the Redskins to 5-7, ended their Wild Card hopes, and left nothing to play for, but pride.

Given their last performance, that might be daunting. The Redskins were sloppy on both sides of the ball, and while some of it can be attributed to the NFL leading amount of injuries they have, some of it was just sloppy. Visit these betting sites to see how the Redskins odds this weekend are affected by their sloppy play against Dallas. Read the rest of this entry »

Samaje Perine Emerging to Keep Redskins in Playoff Hunt

The Washington Redskins are keeping their playoff hopes alive as we enter the final few weeks of the regular season. They have a current record of 5-6, and they still have work to do but they are sticking in there, and showing encouraging fighting qualities, despite the odds being against them.

The Redskins have been hit hard by injuries at the running back position recently, with Rob Kelley going on injury reserve and then emerging star Chris Thompson suffering a horrific break of his fibula and ending up in the same place. The departure of these two has left a huge hole in the Redskins backfield, and that has put more pressure on quarterback Kirk Cousins to throw the ball. However, he has started getting some help in the form of a rookie, Samaje Perine. Read the rest of this entry »

Redskins Need Win Against The Cowboys To Stay in the Playoff Hunt


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

The mere mention of playoffs may have many of you imagining the infamous clip of Jim Mora scornfully mocking the press with, “What’s that? Ah – Playoffs? Don’t talk about – playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game!” After all, Mora’s Colts were 4-6 at the time and not in that dissimilar a position to the (5-6) Washington Redskins; or their opponents, the (5-6) Dallas Cowboys for that matter. Regardless of the improbability, that is still the scenario for the two beleaguered teams as they head into this week’s Thursday Night matchup. In the Redskins odds for the next game, bookmakers have Washington favored ever so slightly. A win for either team will keep them mathematically in line for a Wild Card spot, while a loss would all but drive the final nail into the coffin.

That kind of make-or-break situation will only add to the already tense rivalry between the two teams. Two disenchanted franchises that come into the game… disappointed. Read the rest of this entry »

A Look Back at Super Bowl XXVI and the Greatest Season in Hogs History


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

It was 25 years ago when one of the greatest NFL teams of all time held up the Vince Lombardi trophy after defeating the Buffalo Bills 37-24. It was also the Skins’ third Championship in 10 years. This was the first, however, that was over a full 16-game schedule, with the other two Championships won after strike-shortened seasons.

The team ranked first in offense during the regular season, and also had the second-ranked defense. Outscoring opponents by 332 points through the regular season and post-season combined, the Redskins didn’t trail once after the regular season had ended. Incredible.

Throwback Thursday: On This Day in Redskins History – 1947


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

On this day in Redskins history in 1947, Slingin’ Sammy Baugh led the Washington Redskins to a stunning 45-21 dismantling of the Chicago Cardinals.

It was 70 years ago, but Baugh was posting modern numbers in the game he was revolutionizing. He completed 25 of his 33 passes for 355 yards, with an incredible 6 of those passes for touchdowns. That would be an impressive statline for any quarterback on any Sunday, let alone in 1947.

Redskins Dick Poillion had an impressive and interesting scoreline that day too. He put up 15 points on the strength of one touchdown pass, one field goal, and six PATs.

Paul McKee led all Redskin receivers with 7 receptions for 103 yards, including touchdown receptions of 4 and 28 yards, while Hugh Taylor (34 yards), Sal Rosato (16 yards) and George Wilde (9 yards) all had a touchdown reception each.

The win came at Griffith Stadium with 35,362 in attendance.

Washington Redskins Face Crucial Period in Weeks Ahead


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

After eleven weeks of NFL football, what’s left to play for in the NFC East as one of the league’s most competitive conferences edges towards a conclusion – and what do the Washington Redskins have to do?

Currently third in the NFC East, the Redskins are 4-6, just behind the 5-5 Dallas Cowboys. With a margin so tight, a single weekend of NFL action could change the standings completely. The only problem is that the Philadelphia Eagles are running away with it, with a 9-1 record, and are standing amongst the contenders to go all the way to the Super Bowl. So the Redskins and the Cowboys are “battling” for second place, and on an outside chance, a Wild Card berth. Read the rest of this entry »

Redskins Take A Ride From the Penthouse to the Outhouse Against the Vikings


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The infamous old Charles Dickens quote describes the emotional roller coaster of the last two weeks for any supporter of the Washington Redskins. After overcoming all odds the week before against a tough Seattle Seahawks team, it looked more like Washington mailed in their performance against the Minnesota Vikings. The inconsistency has to be driving the bookmakers mad when trying to set the betting odds for the Redskins this week, and it isn’t doing much more for the morale of Redskins Nation.

Just two weeks ago, the average burgundy and gold supporter was swimming with delight after delivering one of the grittiest performances in recent Redskins memory. They fought hard. They performed perhaps above their ability level, and the coaches did a bang up job in getting a decimated team ready to play a surging, solid team in the Seahawks.

But apparently the wheels came off at some point between that game, and this weekend’s 38-30 loss against the Vikes. The Redskins looked like a totally different team.

Did The Redskins Turn A Corner With Their Victory over the Seahawks?


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

Last Sunday, fans were treated to one of the absolute best games of the 2017 NFL season, and one of the grittiest performances that a Washington Redskins team has put in for a long time. The Redskins overcame what seemed an insurmountable amount of injuries at key positions, as well as a late Seahawks touchdown that could have easily sucked the wind out of Washington’s sails, to come away with a hard-fought, all important 17-14 victory over the Seahawks. That type of perseverance is sure to muddle the betting odds for the Redskins games, but could also serve to springboard the Redskins to a solid back half of the season.

Even the most optimistic of the Redskins faithful came into the matchup scratching their heads. How on earth was a team that didn’t even have enough guys to field a full healthy roster, going to compete with a surging 5-2 team, that had really only one key injury?

Old fashioned blood and guts, that’s how.
