‘We want Dallas!’ Skins go to Big D after 42-24 win vs. Pack

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — As the chants of "We want Dallas! We want Dallas!" reverberated through the stadium, it was clear Washington Redskins fans already were looking forward to a Thanksgiving Day showdown against the NFC East-leading Cowboys. Redskins players were ready to think about what’s ahead, too. "A quick turnaround week," Redskins wideout DeSean Jackson said. "Everybody’s focused on this next game coming up. It’s going to be another big one." Thursday’s game at Dallas – the current division leader hosting last season’s division champion – would not have been as meaningful had Washington (6-3-1) not won for...

From Riggins to Allen to Elway, the best Super Bowl runs

(AP) Last year’s Super Bowl is best remembered for a team’s unsuccessful decision to throw on what appeared to be an obvious running down near the goal line, the sort of thing that maybe shouldn’t surprise anyone, given the emphasis on passing in today’s NFL. Instead of handing the football to Marshawn Lynch, the Seattle Seahawks told Russell Wilson to toss it toward the end zone, and Malcolm Butler’s interception sealed the New England Patriots’ victory. There was a time when relying on a rushing game was not as unheard-of as it is now, and a few of the...

In playoff mode, Aaron Rodgers, Packers beat Redskins 35-18

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy doesn’t want to hear any more about his team’s two losses to end the regular season — or the anemic offense that caused them. After the Packers beat the Washington Redskins 35-18 Sunday to reach the divisional round, McCarthy and his players were quick to put all their recent struggles in the rearview mirror. “You don’t have to talk about the regular season no more,” McCarthy said. “The playoffs are different.” It looked like the same old problems early against Washington when the Packers fell behind 11-0 and couldn’t...

Dez, Cowboys remain in NFC East race with 19-16 win at Skins

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — After the game’s 10th drive finally resulted in the evening’s first points, Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant stalked around the sideline, cursing and yelling and, oddly, even removing his shoes. He was upset that the football wasn’t being thrown his way. On the game’s final scoring drive, Matt Cassel’s only two completions both went to Bryant, helping set up Dan Bailey’s 54-yard field goal with 9 seconds left Monday night that gave Dallas a 19-16 victory over the Washington Redskins and allowed the Cowboys to somehow keep themselves in the thick of the playoff chase...

Redskins QB Griffin leaves exhibition game after getting concussion in the second quarter

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — After watching Robert Griffin III get knocked around for three possessions, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden sent his starting quarterback back out for a fourth Thursday night. That one ended with consecutive sacks and Griffin leaving with a concussion. Griffin was hurt early in the second quarter of Washington’s 21-17 exhibition victory over the Detroit Lions when he fumbled the ball without contact while scrambling, then got landed on by defensive end Corey Wooton. Gruden said he had "no idea" how long the 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year would be sidelined. As for...
