Initials I never thought I would say.Together for the words they mean.Not in a million years I thought would say.
Hail To The Redskins!
What a game the Redskins and the Ravens played yesterday aftrenoon in Landover. As the Redskins won 31-28 in overtime. As most games do go though it had it''s dead spots then had it's hot spots. The last five minutes of yesterday's game was hot spot central. As the Ravens Ray Rice put the game at 28-20 for the Ravens and the game looked pretty much over at that point. NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND! The Redskins got the ball back and did end up punting it back to the Ravens. Then the Ravens punted back to the Redskins
And here is where it got interesting.
Redskins faced a 2nd and 19. And RGIII being RGIII improvised on a play and ran like a wildman gaining 13 yards 6 short of the 1st. But here is where it gets interesting. Haloti Ngata who had Griffins number all day. Ngata got in a nasty hit (clean hit) but nasty. RGII had his body in New York and his knee in San Francisco. Said he yelled but like a man of course. Griffin left the game for one play. Came back hooked up with Santana Moss on an underneath pass that Moss made happen for a first down. Then RGIII hooked up with Pierre Garcon for a 22 yard strike and you could tell RGIII was feeling pain. As he rushed to the line took a boched snap and winged it ruled for grounding. He could not go on. Enter Kirk Cousins. game was over again right?Again. NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND! After the said grounding Cousins faced a 2nd and 20 picked up a big chuck then faced 3rd and short. Went for bust got the TD throw to Pierre Garcon 28-26 Ravens. To tie the game and send it to overtime the Redskins had to have a 2 point conversion. And what did Cousins do? QB SNEAK UP THE MIDDLE. Tie game and it goes to overtime.
Coin toss Ravens win so of course with the NFL rules you take the ball. Redskins force a three and out Ravens have to punt the ball.
Richard Crawford breaks off a 64 yard return. And put the Redskins into position to win. Two handoffs and a fg later game set macth Redskins win.
I have never been a Redskins fan by any means.And I really do not intend on being one. But I can not lie these last four weeks and the magic that RGIII has produced? They have been OVERLY fun to watch. Gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling for the fans that have gone to the stadium worn the burgandy and gold and rooted for the skins and got NOTHING in return. To now FINALLY having a franchise qb. And making a tweek here and there they may be onto something.
So what else can be said other than?
HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!
