The Washington Redskins defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 31-6 today in front of an energetic FedExField crowd.

It was perhaps the first time all season the Redskins (4-6) have put together a solid all-around game for four quarters from its offense, defense and special teams.

The satisfying feeling carried over after the game on Twitter, where the Redskins players were tweeting away. Players like quarterback Robert Griffin III, who answered ESPN anchor Trey Wingo’s sarcastic tweet about his one incomplete pass on the day:

Others also chimed in, like:

Kerrigan Answers Qs, Hands Out Tickets

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 16, 2012 – 12:33 pm

So we learned yesterday that Ryan Kerrigan would be a math teacher/football coach if he wasn’t in the NFL, he’s a bandwagon fan, he still gets nervous before football games and that he considers teammate London Fletcher the most underrated player in the league.

Kerrigan was participating in the second @Redskins Player Twitter Takeover, in which he actually got in front of our laptops and had control of the @Redskins Twitter account for a good half-hour or so. Rookie running back Alfred Morris was our first @Redskins Player Twitter Takeover participant, which happened on Tuesday.

Kerrigan on Thursday also surprised our followers by handing out two pairs of tickets to Sunday’s Redskins-Eagles NFC East showdown at FedExField to whoever could answer a special Kerrigan-themed trivia question (see below).

Here’s the entire @Redskins Ryan Kerrigan Twitter Takeover from yesterday:

Washington Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan will be taking over the Redskins’ Twitter handle today around 4:15 p.m., when he’ll be answering your questions.

The @Redskins Player Twitter Takeover series started Tuesday, when rookie running back Alfred Morris was brave enough to get behind our laptops and answer various questions.

Today it will be Kerrigan, the Redskins’ first-round (16th overall) pick in the 2011 NFL Draft who currently leads the team with 4.5 sacks heading into Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles at FedExField. Getting involved in Kerrigan’s @Redskins Player Twitter Takeover today is easy:

Polumbus A Father Again; Her Name?

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 30, 2012 – 3:54 pm

Congrats are in order to Washington Redskins offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus and his wife, Elizabeth, on the birth of their second child Monday.

Despite rumors that the girl would be named “Sandy,” in honor of Hurricane Sandy that ravaged the East Coast early this week, Tyler and Elizabeth instead went with Lydia Sue Polumbus.

Say it with me: Aww.

Lydia joins big brother Noah, who I’m sure is hoping to eventually get the 6-foot-8 genes from his father’s side.

Polumbus used Twitter to update his followers about how mother and baby — and father — were doing:

Redskins Check In After Hurricane Sandy

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan joked with reporters yesterday that he hoped he wouldn’t find the team’s brand new indoor training facility — known by many as “the bubble” — rolling along State Road 267 after being blown away during Hurricane Sandy.

Fortunately, that actually didn’t end up happening, as long snapper Nick Sundberg reported today:

Sundberg also tweeted out the above photo of the Redskins’ practice fields, and you can see the heavy rains that moved through the area the last couple days definitely left their mark. The team doesn’t really use its AstroTurf practice field much, and if the grass ends up being too soggy tomorrow for practice, it will likely move things indoors to begin preparations for the Carolina Panthers.

Several other Redskins players took to Twitter before, during and after Hurricane Sandy to report what they were seeing, thinking and experiencing:

Offensive lineman Josh LeRibeus:

In case you weren’t aware, a strong storm is currently barreling its way towards the East Coast.

The Washington Redskins, meanwhile, safely landed home tonight after flying from Pittsburgh and their loss to the Steelers.

Hurricane Sandy is obviously on the minds of many who are preparing for the worse, including those in the D.C. area. Evem Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was asked about the storm after today’s game.

Redskins Players Move On To Steelers

Having a big, come-from-behind win against the defending Super Bowl champs on the road within your grasps and seeing it just slip away is probably one of the toughest scenarios for an NFL player.

That’s what happened today to the Washington Redskins, who made a final push to pull ahead of the New York Giants before seeing two-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Eli Manning take the game right back with a long touchdown pass to Victor Cruz.

Several Redskins players were tweeting after the game about the loss; some of them were raving about Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III; some were talking about the loss of tight end Fred Davis, who is out for the year with a torn Achilles; and others were talking about lessons learned:

Safety Reed Doughty:

Redskins Players Have Nationals Fever

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 12, 2012 – 8:12 am

You weren’t alone if you jumped out of your chair last night when Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth sent shockwaves through the D.C. area after crushing a walk-off home run against the St. Louis Cardinals to force tonight’s decisive Game 5 in the National League Division Series.

Several teammates on the Washington Redskins were also tuned into the game and went directly to Twitter to tell everybody about the game and Werth’s tremendous at-bat, which lasted 13 pitches until it ended.

It’s, of course, not the first time in recent memory the Redskins players have gotten behind a D.C.-area team battling in the playoffs. Remember when they got behind the Washington Capitals during their playoff run last season?

Anyway, here’s those tweets from last night’s Nats thriller, starting with quarterback Robert Griffin III:
