    Redskins Look to Make Franchise History in Kansas City


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Washington Redskins have at least a .500 all-time record against all but 12 current franchises in the NFL. Their worst winning percentage against any active team is .111 (1-8) against the Kansas City Chiefs. On Monday night, the Redskins visit the AFC’s lone unbeaten team looking for their first-ever win at Arrowhead Stadium, one of the toughest places to play in the league. Make sure you check 5Dimes before wagering on the game, and that sportsbook has the Chiefs as 7-point betting favorites.

    The Skins don’t play the Chiefs very often so that winning percentage is a tad misleading, but Washington’s lone victory was at home on Sept. 18, 1983, by a 27-12 score. Kansas City has won the past six since then, last 45-10 at FedEx Field on Dec. 8, 2013. That was part of a season-ending eight-game losing streak for Washington. Jamaal Charles rushed for 150 yards and a TD on 19 carries. The Redskins won’t have to worry about Charles this time as he’s now in Denver, but they will have to worry about current running back Kareem Hunt. Read the rest of this entry »

    By The Numbers: Redskins Dominate Raiders on NFL Sunday Prime Time


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The numbers and statistics from the Redskins 27-10 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday were gobsmacking. Sometimes you can’t get a feel for a game just by looking at the numbers. Sometimes, you can tell everything you could possibly hope to know.

    Redskins Offensive Line Powers Running Game Against Rams


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Washington Redskins were held to 64 total rushing yards in their season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles; it was one of the key reasons the team lost 30-17. A week after the embarrassing loss, the Redskins turned to their running game to lead them past the Los Angeles Rams, 27-20.

    This week, NFL betting sites have the Redskins as underdogs against the Oakland Raiders, but the Redskins believe they have what it takes to get the win.

    During the offseason, Washington coach Jay Gruden emphasized that he wanted to have a more balanced offense, after relying heavily on quarterback Kirk Cousins last year. It was difficult to get their run game going against the Eagles in their season opener because they fell behind quickly.

    Against the Rams, the Redskins could run the ball more since because they didn’t have to deal with a big deficit, and they finished the game with a healthy 229 net rushing yards. Washington should be able to get some yards on the ground this week because the Raiders allowed the Jets to rush for 126 yards last week, and have been shaky on defense this season. They’re averaging 4.8 yards per carry (against) in the first two games, and will have to do better than that against the Redskins. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins Facing Tough Test this Week Against Rams


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Washington Redskins kicked off the 2017 season with a gut-wrenching loss to their division rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles. The team now has to put their disappointing season opening loss to the Eagles behind them, and turn their attention to their week two opponents, the Los Angeles Rams.

    Since they were picked by many experts to finish fourth in the NFC East, the Washington Redskins season winning predictions are still on track.

    The Rams are coming off a season opening win against the Indianapolis Colts. Sean McVay, the Redskins 2016 offensive coordinator, gets his first chance to go up against his former team as the head coach of the Rams. The game between the two teams is scheduled to start at 4:25 PM. ET.

    McVay, who turned 31 in January, is the youngest head coach in NFL history. At the same 31-years-old, Washington coach Jay Gruden was coaching in the Arena League as the head coach of the Orlando Predators. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins Nation Unimpressed With Redskins’ Effort Against the Eagles


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    It only took one game, but one thing was quite certain on the social network airwaves on Sunday, Redskins fans were downtrodden. While 1/16th of a season does not a season make, it was apparent that the fan base saw next-to-nothing that would inspire even a glimmer of hope in Washington’s 30-17 loss to the Eagles.

    It started bad. It finished bad. What happened in between was mediocre at best. The defense played better than the offense, but the Vienna Boys Choir might have put in a better offensive showing, so that isn’t saying much. And when the dust settled after the game, it was clear that this fan base is beat up. Tired of losing. Tired of fielding an embarrassing product. Tired of turning their head when they answer, “I’m a Redskins fan.” Tired of spending money on a product that doesn’t ever seem to do anything but go in big, bad circles. And it didn’t take sixteen games, it took one.

    Here’s a collection of reactions to yesterday’s game from THN’s Twitter account. I actually thought that the mood was so somber that I would try and lighten the mood a bit. I tweeted:

    Here are the sobering results – caution, some tweets are NSFW language – they weren’t removed because this is about the raw emotions of Redskins Nation: Read the rest of this entry »

    Can the Washington Redskins Win the NFC East Title in 2017?

    Washington had a disappointing 2016 NFL season. While key injuries may have hindered the Redskins’ chance of competing against their NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants, ultimately they fell short in the grand scheme of things. For many Redskins fans, it felt like Jay Gruden’s men had failed to build, or improve on the 2015 campaign.

    But the 2016 season has been and gone. Time to focus on the future, and can Washington challenge at the top of the division in the coming months? With a few favorable results in the opening few weeks of the year, Gruden’s side could hit the ground running, and early momentum could help the Redskins pull away from Dallas and New York in the NFC East title race.

    Redskins Beat Eagles And Keep Playoff Hopes Alive


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Carson Wentz drove the Philadelphia Eagles all the way down to the 14-yard line in the game’s dying moments, before Ryan Kerrigan’s eleventh sack of the season, and arguably the most timely, ended their drive, and gave the Washington Redskins a 27-22 victory. Washington ended their two game losing streak, and kept pace with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card playoff hunt. Check all the NFL odds and scores.

    Kirk Cousins had a rather pedestrian day with just 234 passing yards, but he threw two touchdown passes, including an 80-yard bomb to former Eagle DeSean Jackson. That gave Washington a 14-13 lead in the third quarter. He then hooked up with Pierre Garcon for another touchdown, and a 21-13 lead.

    The joy was short lived though, as Cousins would then throw an interception to Leodis McKelvin, and he would return it 29 yards to the Redskins end zone for an Eagles score, and gave them some momentum. But at 21-19, the Eagles went for two and failed to convert when a pass to Jordan Matthews was batted down. Read the rest of this entry »

    Cardinals Put Cog in Redskins Playoff Hopes


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    After four lead changes in the second half alone, Carson Palmer hit J.J. Nelson with a 42-yard pass with less than two minutes remaining, to take a 31-23 lead and put the game away for good. In the process, the Redskins lost their grip on the second wild card spot as they fell to 6-5-1; and coupled with a Tampa Bay Buccaneers win, put the Redskins on the outside looking in, as they drive for the playoffs over their last four games. You can check an American site that offers updated NFL lines for this week’s pertinent playoff match-ups.

    Palmer threw for 300 yards and three touchdowns on the day, but second year running back David Johnson was the difference maker.

    He not only scored twice, but led all running backs in carries and yards (18 for 84), while simultaneously leading all receivers in both receptions and yards (9 for 91). He scored one on the ground, and one in the air for good measure. The Redskins didn’t appear to have an answer for him all day. Read the rest of this entry »
