Redskins Top Bills in First Preseason Win 7-6

Posted By Mercedes Green On Aug 10 2012 @ 9:36 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

I am impressed.  No RG3 did not throw a 70 yard TD pass on his first possession (wouldn’t that have been amazing) but he played solid, threw some great passes, tried to fix a botched handoff to a running back by acting like a cornerback instead of a quarterback and threw his first professional TD.  He was protected well, which was a must and his receivers were available.  The running game was also a factor in the game (other than the fumble) and the contest for starting RB will have Royster ahead.

As for the other QBs?  Eeks.  Rex Grossman followed RG3 with only 2 for 10 and 22 yards.  Kirk Cousins completed 9 for 22 for 74 yards; however, his first professional score was not a TD pass but an interception.

As for the defense, they recorded 4 sacks (Kehl, Neild, Kerrigan and White), 1 forced fumble (White) and 1 interception (Crawford).  The Bills got no sacks on any Redskin QB so nice work OLine.

So even though this is just preseason, I like what I’m seeing so far.  Protect RG3 and he will prevail.

HTTR!
