The Washington Redskins started Reed Doughty at strong safety Sunday, with LaRon Landry still sidelined with a groin injury, and rookie DeJon Gomes got the nod at free safety though veteran Oshiomogho Atogwe dressed for the game.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said the team went with Gomes – Washington’s fifth-round pick out of Nebraska – because Atogwe remained hobbled by knee...
If you don’t care, then it really doesn’t matter now does it? Well, we learned that even a high octane offense gets frustrated and Bill O’Brien is more than a puppet offensive coordinator. Brady admitted he made a “dumb” mistake in trying to force a pass to Tiquan Underwood in the back of the end zone. The Patriots were ready to go up two scores either via touchdown or...
When the Washington Redskins' maligned offense lost two of its best players to drug suspensions last week, it became fair to wonder how they would move the ball during the final four games of the season. Tight end Fred Davis and left tackle Trent Williams are athletic blockers capable of ...

Washington Redskins players comment on their game against the New England Patriots from FedEx Field on Sunday, December 11, 2011.
If the Washington Redskins played every game with the emotion they displayed Sunday against the New England Patriots, their season might have turned out differently.

It wasn’t easy in the nation’s capital (OK, Maryland technically), but the Patriots were able to come away with a win over the Washington Redskins, winning 34-27. The Skins were able to drive down within striking distance of tying the game with under a minute to play, but a Rex Grossman pass to Santana Moss...
