According to NBC, Washington D.C. wants the Redskins back within the city. The problem is that the team’s lease at FedEx Field in Prince George’s County, Md. runs through 2027, seemingly locking the team in there for the immediate future.

I might be a little late to this video, but it doesn’t get much better than this. The Skins 12th man always adds to the fan experience, and I am sure those who participated in this chant won’t soon forget that moment. Hopefully the Redskins Marching band will be leading another RG3 chant this Sunday after the Battle of The Beltway match-up between the Ravens. Related posts...
He is quickly becoming a favorite target for Robert Griffin III and Pierre Garcon likes it that way. After catching footballs from Peyton Manning, Garcon has seen all the variables of the quarterback-receiver relationship. Rookie RG3 has been hooking up with Santana Moss, however, Garcon has been playing hurt and Monday night against the Giants, Garcon had 8 catches for 106 yards...
On third-and-one, Robert Griffin III faked an up-the-middle handoff to Alfred Morris - and the New York Giants fell for it big-time.
''They all just crashed down on me,'' Morris said. ''When that happens, I really just laugh in the pile. `Ha, ha.' I was thinking, like, `Y'all dumb, y'all tackled me, but the quarterback is running down the field...

The Beltway Battle will once again be fought this Sunday in Landover as the Baltimore Ravens take on the Washington Redskins for the third time since 2001. Though Baltimore has won the last two matchups against the Redskins, circumstances are much different for both teams this time around. While the Ravens have been persevering through a rough season fraught with injuries, they...
Baltimore’s defense is hurting and its offense struggles on the road. Washington is on a three-game roll and needs this game real bad. The Redskins haven’t beaten the Ravens in 12 years. If not now, when?
