Let me first start by stating that this was another lucky win for the Redskins. Their D allowed over 427 yards and McNabb was sacked 5 times. Although their yardage does look high, 2 long passes to Moss and Armstrong made up most of them. However, since this was a W, I’m looking at the positives. Brian Orakpo finally got his sack (2 this game), Santana Moss put up 118 yards alone (357 in total passing yards), newbie Anthony Armstrong 84 yards and the only TD for the Redskins, and S LaRon Landry caught the interception in overtime giving the Redskins the ball and getting their field goal to win the game (as well as forcing a fumble on the Packer’s first drive).
Yes it was a winnable game to either team but the Redskins got it. They are in first place in the NFC East and with Dallas losing yesterday, puts them last at 1-3. It’s a good day.
Here are the total offense stats for the game.

I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
