The Redskins marched 82 yards on their opening drive for a 7-0 lead on rookie running back Roy Helu’s two-yard touchdown run around the left side. Helu took the pitch, broke free from Jets defensive end Ropati Pitotua in the backfield and squeezed into the end zone for Washington’s second straight game with a touchdown on its first possession.

The Redskins 19-34 loss today to the Jets does not tell the full story of the game. For example, it does not adequately convey the phenomenon that seems to have occurred within this game where each team miraculously possessed the ability to turn their skills on and off like a light switch. First quarter Redskins were a completely different team than the one that took the field in...
Washington Redskins running back Roy Helu reached the 100-yard rushing mark for the second consecutive week, and became the first franchise’s first rookie to do so in 18 years. But Helu said he hasn’t started to think he has arrived.
“I don’t like that word at all, actually,” said Helu, who on Sunday carried the ball 23 times for 100 yards and a touchdown, along with four...
Washington Redskins running back Roy Helu reached the 100-yard mark and scored a touchdown for the second consecutive week as he carried the ball 23 times against the New York Jets.
By following last week’s 108-yard day against the Seattle Seahawks with the 100-yard performance against the Jets, Helu became the first Redskins rookie in 18 years to hit the century mark in back...
Two Redskins players have received fines for illegal hits in last Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
Washington Redskins defensive end Stephen Bowen was fined $15,000 fine for roughing the passer, even though he wasn’t penalized for the incident in Sunday’s game.

I can’t listen to the Redskins Radio Network call the team’s games at the office due to non-synced feeds, but readers always seem to send along their favorite moments. Here were three from Sunday’s loss to the Jets.
Helu’s First Drive
The first drive, during which Roy Helu touched the ball on six of eight plays and wound up in the end zone, earned rave reviews.
Yesterday may have been the coming out party for Redskins RB and University of Nebraska product Roy Helu. With Fred Davis and Trent Williams liable to miss the rest of the season with a 'joint' four game suspension, Helu is the best remaining player on the Redskins offense. And he is only a rookie. Which is awesome.As a complete back, Helu is still very much a work...
The Redskins couldn't keep up with the Jets, as the NFC East club fell 34-19 on their home turf of FedEx Field.
Quarterback Rex Grossman was erratic as usual, completing 19 of 46 passes for 221 yards, with no touchdowns against one interception. Roy Helu led the ground attack with 100 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries, to go along with four catches for 42 receiving...
If you’re a fan of defense, the third quarter was a joyous time for you.
If you like offense, well…sorry.
In the third quarter, the two teams combined for 50 total yards and two (2) first downs in the third quarter. The fans got back in the game, rocking the stadium hard enough that it could be felt in the press box.
The Roy Helu fumble at the end of the third quarter...
1-While the skins did fight for most of this loss against the Jets, they simply weren’t good enough to survive a generally mediocre game turned in by most of the players. Grossman, to his credit, held of from his usual turnovers for most of the game, but didn’t you just know that bad rex would show up at the most inopportune time? The defense held the jets generally in check...
Frustration and disappointment were the flavors in the Redskins locker room this evening, as the team knows that they let a golden opportunity slip away.
For the offense today, it was the tale of two halves, with 183 yards in the first half, and 121 in the second half. On defense, it was the tale of three quarters vs. the fourth quarter, with 168 yards and 13 points through...
So after last week’s squeaker the Jets head to Capital City to face the schizophrenic Redskins. Starting the season 3-1, Washington dropped six straight coming off the bye before finally getting a win last week. They might be all over the map in terms of consistency but they do have some talent. Let’s take a look at three of them.
He may only have two good games but...
