The Washington Redskins were shut out last week, and shut out in the first half this week, too — until Graham Gano finally got them on the board on the last play before halftime. Gano booted a 59-yard field goal as time expired on the second quarter, and the Redskins are finally on the board…

Yes, that’s right, Jack Abramoff has a Redskins connection, and was a FedEx Field suite holder, which he detailed in his new book. Via TPM via Huff Post:
