It was also the last time the Washington Redskins walked out of a hard fought game against the San Diego Chargers with victory.
Well so much for that because Psycho is stashed away in my dust-ridden VHS collection, London Fletcher could rock a grizzly, salt and pepper grey beard for No Shave November that even George Clooney would get jealous of, Santana Moss has or is close to hitting several NFL statistical plateaus and the Redskins hold a one-game winning streak over the Bolts.
Anyway, this week’s weekly stat ranking update features a whole lot of Alfred Morris yards per carry, Fletcher takedowns and DeAngelo Hall touchdown celebrations.
Barring an interception that couldn’t happen again in 100 tries, Robert Griffin III had himself a pretty good game on Sunday. Connecting on a season-high 72 percent of his passes, Griffin III finished just nine yards short of his fourth 300-yard game of the season.
–Yards: 2,169 (11th)
–Completions: 181 (12th)
–Touchdowns: 9 (Tied for 21st)
–Quarterback Rating: 80.0 (24th among quarterbacks with at least 100 pass attempts)
He has helped Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan though, with a healthy 5.2 yards per carry.
–Yards: 686 (5th)
–Average: 5.2 (1st among running backs with at least 50 rushing attempts)
–Touchdowns: 5 (9th)
Someone forgot to tell Pierre Garcon that Halloween was last Thursday, because he kept showing his fanged mouth guard each time he made a monster reception. I can’t blame him after recording a scary good career-high 172 yards.
–Yards: 684 (11th)
–Receptions: 54 (4th)
–Touchdowns: 2 (Tied for 60th)
London Fletcher is like a fine wine, he just keeps getting better with age. With the weather still somewhat tolerable, his bones aren’t aching yet. But the running backs he slams down do. Sunday, he tied a season-high with 13 tackles.
–Tackles: 65 (Tied for 22nd)
Ryan Kerrigan may not have recorded a sack this weekend, but he still ranks highly in the category. With a few extra pounds to carry around in the month of November, offensive lineman aren’t going to be able to complete with his combination of speed, strength and teenager-esque mustache.
–Sacks: 6,5 (Tied for 11th)
If I were DeAngelo Hall I’d walk around with Nelly’s somewhat classic (I guess) “I Am Number 1” playing in my head:
Defensive Touchdowns: 3 (1st)
The trashman didn’t come again this week so another recycled disclaimer.
I just realized that I failed to mention the factoring in off the bye week. Some teams like the Redskins have while some have not. So for the next few weeks, rankings might be a little more screwy. Last week six teams were on the bye and more are on the way soon. So nothing will really be on equal playing ground until about Week 12 or 13.
Just a little somethin’, somethin’ in case you’re wondering.
