At this point in the season all the Redskins are playing for is pride. Clearly they are out of the playoff race but, all football teams fight to the end and this team showed fight Sunday. No one gave the Skins a chance to take down the mighty Patriots but it was a close call. Washington had the ball inside with redzone with under a minute left to play in the game down by 7. They had a chance to shock everyone and force overtime. Unfortunately it was not meant to be as Rex Grossman’s pass was intercepted to seal the deal for New England. With that said they were some positives to come from this game from the Redskins side of the ball. Once again Roy Helu showed that he could very well be the RB of the future. Fellow rookie Evan Royster contributed on the ground as well showing off his shifty moves that made him a star at Penn State. Grossman had an all around good game. Unfortunately the play could not be made at the end to force OT. The Redskins held the lead on a few different occasions in this one Brady and the Pats offense proved to be too much in the end. Like they have so many times before New England’s offense was able to do just enough to sneak by and squash Washington’s dream of an upset. Going forward the Skins travel to New York with an AFC matchup against the hated Giants. The Redskins and their fans would love nothing more than to deliver a crushing blow to the Giants playoff hopes with a win Sunday. It is possible for them to do it but, it will be a tall task for a team that just is not that good right now.
