Skins Blown Over in 4th Quarter

Posted By Mercedes Green On Dec 5 2011 @ 9:55 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

These are the games that really annoy me.  The Redskins scored a touchdown on their opening drive and they seemed to be doing well (8 plays, 82 yards).  The Jets scored a TD as well, but did so in 9 minutes.  That would be the only score for both in the 1st quarter.  The running game seemed solid for the 1st quarter.  They could have won this game no problem.

In the 2nd quarter, the Skins got 2 FGs and the Jet 1 to have the lead into the half 13-10.  Rex Grossman almost had a couple interceptions and an intentional ground penalty and the running game seemed to have stopped.  But hey, the defense can hold right?  Wrong.

In the 3rd quarter, the Jets tied with another FG 13 points apiece.  Rex Grossman almost throws another interception and Roy Helu fumbles.  The Jets get another FG try but this time misses it from 40.  13-13.

In the 4th quarter, all Redskins fans have hope as they’re not losing.  TE Fred Davis has been having an awesome game, but WR Santana Moss is not catching anything.  Grossman passes to WR Anderson, but even though it appears it’s a defensive pass interference there is no flag.    The Skins get yet another FG and take the lead with 5 minutes left.  The Jets will score 21 points in the last 5 minutes due to a short Gano kick then a Grossman sack and fumble and the Jets scoring their final TD after the Redskins failed onside kick.

What’s even worse is the rumour (not yet official) that Fred Davis and Trent Williams will miss the last 4 games of the season, not due to injuries, oh no.  They’ll be suspended for substance abuse:  POT! This was supposedly during a lock-out grace period.

Looking at the offensive numbers though, you would not expect the score.   The biggest stat missing for the Redskins:  ZERO sacks.
