Pierre Garcon Kicks Football Into Stands After Incompletion, Channels Redskins’ Frustration During Loss to Giants (GIF)

It’s been a long, long season for the Washington Redskins. Last year’s darlings of the NFC now cannot seem to buy a victory, with Sunday night’s sloppy, 24-17 loss to the Giants dropping the Redskins to 3-9 and all but eliminating them from playoff contention.

James Develin Shows Incredible Determination, Breaks Six Tackles on 1-Yard Touchdown Run (GIF)

Take notes, kids. This is what they call smash-mouth football.  James Develin, an undrafted rookie out of Brown who came into Sunday without an NFL carry to his name, was given the ball at the 1-yard line with the Patriots trailing Houston 17-7 early in the third quarter.

Julian Edelman Dubbed ‘Minitron’ After ‘Megatron’ Calvin Johnson by Tom Brady
