Redskins seek 1st winning streak of 2013

Are the Redskins about to make another run?

Adrian Peterson, Robert Griffin III Look to Lift Middling Teams With Their Star Power in Thursday Night Showdown

A Week 10 matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Washington Redskins this Thursday will serve as cold, hard proof that it takes more than a lone superstar to make an NFL contender.

Star running back Adrian...

Acting Cordial: Talking R-Words vs. Vikings with Redskins Hog Heaven

Whoa, we are playing another game already? What is this, Big XII football? I thought they only played on Thursday nights. No!
