2014 NFC South Opponents To Be Determined This Weekend

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 12:00 pm



One of the bottom feeders in the NFC South will travel to Washington in 2014. What happens this weekend will decide which one.

At 3-12, the Redskins will finish last in the NFC East no matter what happens Sunday in New York, which means, per NFL protocols, the team’s 2014 opponents are all but set.

Washington will play a typical divisional slate, four games against the NFC West, four games against the AFC South, a road contest against the last place team in the NFC North (Minnesota is locked in) and a home game against the last place team in the NFC South. Read more »

Cousins’ ATL Experience Starts With TD

Very rarely does a second-year quarterback, who is the backup mind you, get to the opportunity to play a good chunk of the snaps against a team outside the division in back-to-back seasons.

Then again, most teams don’t have a backup like Kirk Cousins, NFL.com’s No. 1 rated backup.

His unusual situation will pick back up on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

Yesterday it was announced that Cousins would start the final three games of the season, the first of which will take place in the spacious Georgia Dome.

For his nascent NFL career, the former Michigan State star has completed 61.6 percent of his passes for 573 yards and one touchdown.

The first touchdown stupefied Atlanta’s defensive backfield, as his 77-yard connection with Mr. Consistency (Santana Moss) was a beautiful concoction of precision, power and electricity that sent pulse waves through a sellout crowd at FedExField.

Time to remember the moment:

Alexander Plays NFL Expert, Convincingly

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 18, 2013 – 5:45 pm


Lorenzo Alexander is one of the few Redskins players to ever win the Media Good Guy award multiple years, and did so in both 2011 and 2012. Alexander has a well-deserved reputation for offering honest, thoughtful insight into his life and his role with the Washington Redskins.

So it should come as no surprise that the “One Man Gang” can handle himself comfortably on camera, providing CSN Washington with a player’s perspective in the lead-up to this weekend’s NFL Championship action.

Alexander has the benefit of having played each of the four remaining teams at home in the last two seasons, with the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots in 2011 and the Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons in 2012.

He speaks with the poise and confidence of a veteran newscaster, and has a second career in sports if he so chooses.

Hear what he had to say, below: Read more »

On Thursday, star linebacker London Fletcher was a guest on “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” on ESPN Radio.

Fletcher spoke with Cowherd about his thoughts on the four remaining teams left in the playoffs: the Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, and San Francisco 49ers.

Fletcher has some “inside” knowledge on all four contenders. The Redskins played the Falcons and Ravens this year as well as the Patriots and 49ers last year.

Find out what London had to say about each team here (via ESPN Radio):

PHOTO: Carriker Dressed As Goldberg?

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 11, 2012 – 9:21 am

(Hint: this is not the photo mentioned in the headline. Read on for more…)

Washington Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker is a man of his word.

He has recently struck up a friendship with one of his idols, wrestling legend Goldberg, and the two placed a friendly bet with each other about last Sunday’s game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Washington Redskins.

Goldberg — himself a former defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons — agreed to wear a Redskins jersey if Washington won, while Carriker — who co-hosts a wrestling/football radio show, 4th & Pain — agreed to dress up like Goldberg if Atlanta won.

Well, the Falcons ended up winning 24-17 to move to 5-0, and we’ll let Carriker tell you his philosophy:


So, Carriker took to the Redskins locker room — oiled up and speedo and all — and took the following photo (warning: this isn’t for the faint of heart and definitely not for you currently eating your breakfast:)

WAS-ATL: Fourth Quarter Conclusions

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 7, 2012 – 4:05 pm

(AP photo)

The Redskins certainly had plenty of opportunities to make a statement with a win over the undefeated Atlanta Falcons today.

And though Washington had a 3-point lead into the fourth quarter, it couldn’t eventually keep Matt Ryan and the Falcons’ offense at bay.

The Falcons (5-0) defeated the Redskins (2-3) 24-17 in front of 75,337 fans at FedExField.

The thought on just about every Redskins fan’s mind, however, is the condition of rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Griffin III was “shaken up” after suffering a huge hit near the end of the third quarter. He was taken into the locker room for evaluations and didn’t return to the game.

Redskins.com will definitely keep you updated on the latest on Griffin III’s condition.

As for the rest of the fourth quarter…

WAS-ATL: Third Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 7, 2012 – 3:21 pm

(AP photo)

Well, this game just got interesting — and Redskins fans everywhere are holding their collective breaths.

Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III took a nasty hit by an Atlanta defender in the third quarter as he tried to go down near the sideline. Griffin III walked off the field with the help of team trainers and was taken to the locker room for evaluations. His backup — fellow rookie Kirk Cousins — immediately began warming up on the sidelines

The next play after the Griffin III injury was a made field goal by kicker Billy Cundiff, extending the Redskins’ lead to 10-7. Their defense, meanwhile, forced a punt on the next Atlanta drive, setting up Cousins’ first drive as a professional football player.

WAS-ATL: Halftime Recollections

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 7, 2012 – 2:27 pm

(AP photo)

The offensive woes continued into the second quarter of today’s game between the Washington Redskins and the Atlanta Falcons. But this time around, the Washington defense took advantage.

Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan tipped a Matt Ryan pass and ran 28 yards untouched into the end zone for the game’s first score, putting the Redskins up 7-0 with about nine minutes to go in the first half.

But the talented Atlanta offense couldn’t be held back much longer, as they responded with a 1-yard touchdown pass and catch from quarterback Matt Ryan to tight end Tony Gonzalez that tied the game at 7 heading into halftime.
