Redskins Lose to Ravens in Final Seconds

Posted By Mercedes Green On Aug 29 2011 @ 11:16 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

This was definitely the QB challenge for starter position.    Both Grossman and Beck played well (until a late game interception by Beck).   The Redskins were up 14-0 in the 1st quarter thanks to the defense with a DeAngelo Hall interception for a TD and RB Tim Hightower with a running TD.  In the second quarter it was Rex Grossman to throw to Santana Moss for a TD giving the Redskins a 21-14 lead at the half.

In the third it was John Beck’s turn to throw a TD pass to Terrence Austin.   In the 4th quarter it was a Graham Gano field goal to take the Redskins to a 31-24 lead then a Ravens FG to bring it to 31-27.  The Redskins had the ball with 3 timeouts left and just over 2 minutes left.  They had this game.  However, they could not get a 1st down and with under a minute left, the Ravens managed a TD to take the lead and the game at 34-31.
