VIDEO: Redskins On ‘Turning Point’

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 18, 2012 – 8:56 pm

There were several “turning points” for the Redskins in last Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, so naturally, they’re featured in a show by the same name.

The Redskins-Vikings matchup — and particularly how Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III was able to shred apart the opposing defense — will be featured tonight on NBC Sports Network’s “Turning Point,” which airs at 10 p.m.

One of the coolest things about the breakdown of Griffin III and the Redskins’ offense last Sunday was how confused the Vikings’ defense was at times during the game.

The Redskins continue their weekly roller-coaster ride up and down various organizations’ NFL power rankings lists this week with another high point.

The correlation is simple: when the Redskins have won, they have been ranked higher. When they lose, their ranking typically goes down.

Everybody love simple math.

Anyway, I also got to this point of the season without ever including the new Associated Press’ “Pro 32” weekly poll, which is comprised of a national panel of 12 voters and was created from the 50 sports writers and broadcasters who choose the NFL’s individual awards at the end of the season.

So here’s this week’s Power Rankings Roundup, this time with the AP Pro 32 included:

Series History: Redskins-Giants

The Redskins have played the Giants on 160 occasions in the regular season and the postseason combined, beginning in 1932. The Redskins and Giants have faced each other in the regular season 158 times, making them each team’s most common opponent.

The Giants have played in New York since their inaugural season in 1925. The Giants’ MetLife Stadium is located about a mile from the team’s practice facility and headquarters.

The Redskins won the first-ever matchup between the two teams, 14-6, on Oct. 9, 1932, when the Redskins were playing as the Boston Braves. In their first matchup with the Redskins playing in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 16, 1937, the Redskins won 13-3 at Griffith Stadium.

Later that season, the Redskins defeated the Giants 49-14 at the Polo Grounds to earn a trip to the NFL Championship game against the Chicago Bears, which the Redskins won.

Why No Sack/Forced Fumble For Riley?

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 18, 2012 – 9:56 am

One of the key plays and turning points for the Washington Redskins in last Sunday’s victory against the Minnesota Vikings occurred late in the second quarter, when, with the Redskins up 10-9, linebacker Lorenzo Alexander came up with a loose ball at the Vikings’ six-yard line.

On the very next play, quarterback Robert Griffin III found fullback Darrel Young for a touchdown pass, and the Redskins didn’t look back at that point en route to their 38-26 win over NFC North-leading Minnesota.

Most of us in the press box — and I’m sure many of you watching at home or at FedExField — were wondering exactly how the ball squirted out of Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder’s hands, went straight up in the air and right into Alexander’s waiting arms?

Ken Harvey Back On ‘Bertie & Guy’

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 18, 2012 – 7:53 am

Linebacker Ken Harvey appeared in four straight Pro Bowls for the Redskins from 1994 to 1997, and he certainly knows a thing or two about getting to the quarterback.

His 13.5 sacks in 1994 made him the first Redskins player to lead the NFC in that defensive statistic, and he finished with 89 career sacks. Harvey — ranked as one of the 80 Greatest Redskins of All-Time — was also tasked with covering some of the greatest tight ends of his era.

Harvey recently talked about the current Redskins’ defense and how challenging it really is to cover a talented tight end on ESPN SportsTalk 570’s “Tailgating With Bertie & Guy:”
