Odell Beckham Jr. Obliterates Redskins

Odell Beckham Jr. Obliterates Redskins

Win McNamee/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Giants found a gem with their first round pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Odell Beckham Jr. racked up 143 yards on 12 catches, including three touchdowns, Sunday on way to a Giants 24-13 victory. Beckham had a fourth that was negated because of a holding penalty.

After missing the first four games of the season, Beckham has quickly racked up 71 catches for 972 yards and nine touchdowns.  

"I don't want to get his head too big right now, but he has a lot of skill," Eli Manning said. "You hope he keeps working and grinding and doing the little things to correct. There is still room for improvement."

Colt McCoy got the start for the Redskins but quickly exited after re-injuring his neck on the opening series. 

Robert Griffin III entered and found a groove early. He found Christian Thompson for a nine yard touchdown early in the second quarter. Griffin nearly found the end zone again when he called his own number but after an official replay was ruled to have fumbled the ball before crossing the pylon. The Redskins seemed to go into a funk after that play.

Griffin finished 18 of 27 for 236 yards.

"It's not been a fun year," Griffin said. "We've had a lot of turmoil, a lot of things going on. At the end of the day, you suit up and when your number's called, be ready to play."

Rams Defeat Washington 24-0 for Second Straight Shutout

Rams Defeat Washington 24-0 for Second Straight Shutout

Leon Halip/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- For the second straight week the St. Louis Rams shutout an opponent, the first time since 1945 that the Rams (6-7) have performed that feat. On Sunday, St. Louis beat the Washington Redskins 24-0, one week after trouncing Oakland 52-0.

After a scoreless first quarter, Shaun Hill connected with Jared Cook on a 35-yard touchdown pass to open the scoring. Despite a missed extra point, the defense prevented the Redskins (3-10) from doing anything productive on offense.

It wasn't until the third quarter that St. Louis began to put the game well out of reach. The Rams scored 18 points in the period, including another scoring catch from Cook and a 78-yard punt return to the house by Tavon Austin. Hill finished the game with 213 yards in the air and a pair of touchdown passes.

St. Louis' defense totaled seven sacks in the win and held the Redskins to just 27 rushing yards.

Washington's Colt McCoy was intercepted twice, completing 20-of-32 passes for 199 yards. Previously benched quarterback Robert Griffin, III made a late appearance and was 3-of-4 passing.

Jay Gruden Puts the Pressure on Robert Griffin III

Jay Gruden Puts the Pressure on Robert Griffin III

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Jay Gruden's first year as the head coach of the Washington Redskins isn't going as smoothly as he had hoped, and now he's speaking out against his quarterback, Robert Griffin III.

In four starts this season, Griffin has yet to resemble the same player who electrified the NFL during his rookie year in 2012 as he's dealt with various injuries and ineffectiveness.

The Redskins won the NFC East in 2012, but have gone just 6-20 since. Gruden is putting the heat on Griffin to step up and perform like the player the franchise drafted him to be.

"He's auditioned long enough," Gruden told NFL.com. "Clock's ticking. He's gotta play.

"We'll see. ... We want Robert to excel, we really do. But the last two games, it hasn't been very good, anywhere. We gotta play better around him. And the biggest thing for us as playcallers, and for him, we just have to come together and jell with plays he's comfortable with. That takes time. But we don't have a lot of time."

Griffin has thrown just two touchdown this season to go along with four turnovers.

Vikings Defeat Redskins 29-26 in Griffin’s Return

Vikings Defeat Redskins 29-26 in Griffin’s Return

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS, MN) -- Sunday marked the return of Robert Griffin III as quarterback of the Washington Redskins.

The Vikings were not impressed, as they beat up the Redskins 29-26 at home.

Rookie Teddy Bridgewater continues to improve as he led four scoring drives, three of which were capped by Matt Asiata touchdown runs.  Bridgewater finished the day 26-42 for 268 yards and one touchdown pass.

Griffin had a good day, but it wasn't good enough. He was 18-28 for 251 yards and one touchdown, but was also sacked five times and threw an inteception. There were good signs, though, for the former second overall pick, who had missed the last six weeks with a dislocated ankle.

The Vikings now move to 4-5 as they continue to play hard for rookie head coach Mike Zimmer.  The loss sends the Redskins to 3-6.

Redskins Upset Cowboys in Overtime

Redskins Upset Cowboys in Overtime

Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(DALLAS,TX) -- Colt McCoy just got his first start as a quarterback in the NFL since 2001; he made the most of it. McCoy got the nod over Kirk Cousins and helped lead the Washington Redskins to a 20-17 overtime upset over the Cowboys in Dallas.

With sharp passes and smart decisions, McCoy was 25-30 for 299 yards while methodically moving the ball against the Cowboys defense. McCoy also showed his legs were still fresh as he scored a touchdown from seven yards out to break a 10-10 tie in the fourth quarter.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered an injury in the third quarter and was forced to the locker room. Backup Brandon Weeden entered and tossed a 25-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jason Witten in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 17-17.

After receiving an injection in the locker room, Romo returned, but a drive he began to lead stalled at the Dallas 32.

The game entered overtime and McCoy led a nine-play, 58-yard drive that set up a go ahead field goal by Kai Forbath.

Romo tried to counter, but the Redskins defense made several plays to break up contested passes and in the end, the Cowboys simply ran out of downs.

Seahawks Get Past Redskins, 27-17 on “Monday Night Football”

Seahawks Get Past Redskins, 27-17 on “Monday Night Football”

Kevin Casey/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- Although the final score didn't fully indicate it, the Seattle Seahawks were able to easily put away the Washington Redskins, 27-17 on Monday night.

Despite the win, it was a frustrating night for Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin, who had three touchdowns called back due to penalties.

"Well, the first one I was cool with," he said. "I was like, 'OK.' Then when the second one happened, I was like, 'Wow.' And then when the third one happened I just flipped my hands down. I couldn't believe it."

Seattle had 13 penalties for 90 yards, but were still able to pull out the win.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had a memorable night as he completed 18 of 24 passes for 201 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. He also rushed for 122 yards on 11 carries and added a touchdown on the ground in the win.

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins rebounded from a rough game start against the New York Giants on Sept. 25 as he threw for 283 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson also had a big game for Washington as he caught five passes for 157 yards and a touchdown.

Seattle improved to 3-1 while Washington fell to 1-4.

Giants Put Away the Redskins, 45-14

Giants Put Away the Redskins, 45-14

Elsa/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- The New York Giants offense was better than expected as the team took apart the Washington Redskins on Thursday night, 45-14.

Quarterback Eli Manning had his best game of the early season. Manning went 28 for 39 with 300 passing yards, throwing four touchdowns, and running for another.

Despite the big game for Manning, the star for the Giants was arguably un-drafted free agent tight end Larry Donnell. On Thursday night, he hauled in seven catches for 54 yards, including three touchdowns.

"That was the whole thing, to be able to leave here tonight and be 2-2 and 1-0 in the division. That was huge," Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said. "It's exciting to be in the hunt, and by being able to come out of here with a win, hopefully we have a chance to be."

As well as Manning played, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins struggled mightily. In his second start of the season, Cousins completed just 19 of 33 passes for 257 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions.

Injury or Not, Jackson Not ‘Missing This Game’

Injury or Not, Jackson Not ‘Missing This Game’

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(ASHBURN, Va.) -- Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson isn't going to let a shoulder injury stop him from playing against his former team on Sunday. Jackson, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles in the spring after articles came out questioning his character, says despite spraining his left shoulder last week against Jacksonville, he will be on the field Sunday. "I don't think an AC joint is jeopardizing my career in the long haul," Jackson said. "If it's all on me, I'm playing. I don't plan on missing this game." Jackson did not practice Wednesday, but Washington head coach Jay Gruden said the receiver will be a limited participant in practice Thursday. Before being released, Jackson played six seasons with the Eagles. During that time he played in 87 games, catching 356 passes for 6,117 yards and 32 touchdowns, and also returning four punts for touchdowns.

Robert Griffin III Exits with Dislocated Ankle

Robert Griffin III Exits with Dislocated Ankle

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- The Washington Redskins (1-1) dominated Jacksonville, 41-10 on Sunday, but did it without starting quarterback Robert Griffin III. The third-year signal caller was carted off the field after suffering a dislocated ankle in the first quarter.

Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins played admirably in relief, throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Jaguars (0-2).

Griffin is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, but could miss the remainder of the season.

"I'm just trying to stay in a good place," said Griffin. "Our spirits are high. We're always thinking positive. We'll see what happens tomorrow and whatever information comes out, we'll know what the timetable is from there."

This marks the second time in his career that Griffin faces a potential season-ending injury. In 2012, Griffin suffered a torn ACL in his right knee, forcing him to miss the final four games of the regular season.

Jadeveon Clowney Prepares for Robert Griffin III

Jadeveon Clowney Prepares for Robert Griffin III

Cliff Hawkins/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- Texans rookie linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is good to go on Sunday and is looking forward to playing in his first NFL regular season game against the Washington Redskins.

Clowney will have a tough task at hand in running down quarterback Robert Griffin III.

"One of the best running quarterbacks in the league I think," Clowney said of RG3. "You gotta be ready to contain him in the pocket because he can get out there and cause havoc, he can run pretty fast."

"I'm just treating it like another game," the first-overall pick said Thursday. "Just go out there and take one play at a time and just do my assignment."

Clowney said his entire family will be in attendance, but he isn't worried about any added pressure during his regular season debut.

"I'm not really nervous, I'm just ready to get to it," Clowney said.  "Something I've been waiting for my whole life."

Clowney missed the final two preseason games, but had three tackles for a loss, a sack and a quarterback hit in the first two games against the Cardinals and Falcons.

Brandon Meriweather Suspended Two Games

Brandon Meriweather Suspended Two Games

NFL Shield(ASHBURN, Va.) -- Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather was suspended for the first two games of the season by the NFL on Monday.

The punishment comes after another helmet-to-helmet hit from Meriweather on Baltimore's Torrey Smith over the weekend.

"Meriweather delivered a forceful blow to the head and neck area of a defenseless receiver with no attempt to wrap up or make a conventional tackle of this player," said NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent in a statement.

Meriweather said after the game on Saturday that he did not believe there was anything wrong with the hit on Smith.

"I'm trying to do what the NFL asked me after going through the offseason, and working on the things I need to work on, and the first chance I get, it seems like I failed," he said.

Meriweather has been fined five different times by the league over the course of his career, including a $42,000 fine for a hit on Packers running back Eddie Lacy in 2013. The safety was also suspended two games last year, but had it reduced to one game following an appeal.
