Jay Gruden Conference Call: We have better players on defense

Jay Gruden answers questions the day after Redskins defeat Raiders Jay Gruden and the Redskins have back-to-back victories and have been proving some doubters wrong after Week 1's loss. The Redskins completely neutered a potent Raiders offense, and are proving their defense is nothing like the Joe Barry abomination. Gruden participated in a conference call with reporters after last night's primetime victory. The Redskins were dealing with a few injuries coming into last night's game, and might be missing their backup OT Ty Nsekhe who suffered a core muscle injury. The defense, along with...

Redskins reserve tackle Ty Nsekhe has core injury, could be out for weeks

It was a good win against the Raiders on Sunday night, but now the sobering lull of the injury report makes an appearance. Redskins tackle Ty Nsekhe is one of a couple new names on the list.

Josh Norman calls out Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree after Redskins big win

Josh Norman is at it once again. Shortly after the Redskins beat the Oakland Raiders 27-10, Norman called out the Raiders’ top receivers who failed to show up.

Wow. Just wow. Where to begin? Honestly, I’m still speechless.

One team out-gained the other by over 300 yards. And it wasn’t the Raiders.

Washington Redskins Win Prime Time Game Against Oakland Raiders, 27-10

Washington Redskins Win Prime Time Game Against Oakland Raiders, 27-10

Anyone who’s watched the Redskins play a prime time game in recent years would have obviously predicted the opening moments of tonight’s game: rookie Montae Nicholson took off from somewhere near the middle of the field and leaped over star wide receiver Amari Cooper to intercept quarterback Derek Carr. They would certainly have predicted the steady offensive performance, seemingly possessed defense, and shut-out that lasted until the final few minutes of the third quarter, too, right? Probably not. The Redskins seemed to take the field tonight with something to prove...

SNF Open Thread: Oakland Raiders at Washington Redskins

SNF Open Thread: Oakland Raiders at Washington Redskins

The 2-0 Oakland Raiders travel cross country to take on the Washington Redskins on Sunday Night Football. Excepting the Los Angeles Chargers, the AFC West is an incredibly competitive division and the Raiders can ill afford a misstep against the Redskins. Similarly, the Redskins are in the very competitive NFC East (excepting, of course, the New York Giants who are awful). This should be an exciting game between two (at least theoretically) high-powered offenses. The Raiders feature Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, and Marshawn Lynch. The Redskins offense is led by Kirk Cousins,...
