Redskins Beat Colts and Starting QB Race is On

Posted By Mercedes Green On Aug 21 2011 @ 7:26 pm In Washington Redskins | No Comments

The Washington Redskins beat the Colts 16-3 on Friday night.  With Rex Grossman showing a promising start against the Steelers the previous week, it was John Beck’s time to show what he has.  Beck completed 14 of 17 for 140, no TDs, but no interceptions.  Rex Grossman, on the other hand, completed 7 of 13 for 88 yards, no TDs but 1 interception.  Much different than his last week’s showing against the Steelers.

The Reskins scored on their first 4 possessions and newbie RB Tim Hightower scored the only touchdown in the game on a 1 yard run.  The other standout of the game was draft pick RB Roy Helu with 14 carries for 101 yards.

The Redskins are now 2-0 in preseason and could use all the extra practice missed by the lockout.  Up next is against the Ravens Thursday, August 25th at 8 PM.
