After a slow start, Giants still have a chance at the playoffs

Giants 40 – Redskins 16

What a season! Who would have thought with the start that the New York Giants had they could even be having thoughts of a playoff run. But, believe it or not, there is still hope. Very slim, but hope.

It seems as though after the bye week the Giants have started to find themselves. In the past 3 weeks, the Giants have had a close loss against the Philadelphia Eagles, and two good wins, one against the Chicago Bears and the latest impressive win against the Washington Redskins. The Giants have improved their record to 4-1 after the bye.

Now, if the beating they gave Washington was a glimpse of what might be if given the chance to enter the playoff season, the Giants may be in good shape. Unfortunately, it isn’t that simple.

OurTurf’s Mock NFL Draft Part 1

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman//@WandaW63

Free agency is pretty much on the quiet front with some players still trickling on to teams, such as quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the Tennessee Titans, and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to the Los Angeles Rams.  But now it’s all about the draft and filling the holes that will make or break a team. So here is my attempt at Round 1 of the NFL Draft.

How The Saints and Redskins Match Up

Official New Orleans Saints Reporter

By Christy Chauvin // @WhoDatWarriors

The New Orleans Saints will face the Washington Redskins this Sunday.  It can be argued as their first matchup against a good quarterback who is not suffering with an injury since Tom Brady.  They faced Cam Newton and Jameis Winston both of whom were working through shoulder problems, and a banged up Matthew Stafford.

This could be their toughest test during their current winning streak. The Washington Redskins will be without running back Robert Kelley, defensive back DeAngelo Hall, and possibly wide receiver Ryan Grant.

Redskins Shock Seahawks in Seattle

Official Washington Redskins Reporter

By Beth Auckland // @bauckland

The Washington Redskins pulled off a miracle in Seattle last night defeating the Seattle Seahawks 17-14.  With an offensive line that has been completely decimated by injuries, it was left to the defense to “hold the line”.  And hold the line they did!

After setting a franchise record last week, everyone thought that Russell Wilson would come out swinging and the Seahawks would blow the Redskins out of the water.  But between all the offensive penalties the Seahawks racked up and an impressive showing from the Redskins defense, the Seahawks once again lost to the Redskins at home.  

The Redskins defense was in Wilson’s face for most of the night, bringing pressure and forcing him out of the pocket time and time again.  They knew going into the game that they would have to keep Wilson contained.  They managed to do this holding him to only 297 passing yards but they did allow him 77 rushing yards.

Seattle falls to Washington at home, 17-14

Seahawks Key Contributor

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

The Washington Redskins came to Seattle with a slight limp. They were facing the fierce Seahawks defense with a very injured offensive line. The stat line showed this, however, the scoreline did not. Seattle rarely loses in November. Today that wasn’t the case.

The game didn’t start well for Seattle and never got better. In fact, the only points the Seahawks had in the first half came from the defense. They are now at 21 games without scoring on 1st possession. Slow starts have become commonplace for the Seahawks, but they often pick it up come the second half of the season. This game was not an example of that.

Redskins vs Seahawks injury report

Seahawks Key Contributor

 

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

 

Looking over the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks injury reports, the first thing you notice is the number of players listed. Starting Wednesday, there were 36 players between the two.  For both teams, that’s a tough way to start the week.

For Seattle, the defense seems to be the most beat up, causing panic in the fan base. The 3 premiere members of the Legion of Boom, corner back Richard Sherman, and safeties Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas, were all listed. Sherman practiced this week and will play, with Chancellor questionable for Sunday but expected to play. Thomas was ruled out for Sunday’s game.

Linebacker Bobby Wagner is listed with a hamstring injury and is questionable for Sunday. Defensive end Michael Bennett seems to still be fighting his foot injury but will play, and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson has an oblique injury, and is considered questionable for the game. Wagner and Richardson will both be game time decisions.

Eagles Soar To #1

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaann Herrera // @roxaaneh

FINAL: Eagles – 34   Redskins – 24

And then there was one. NUMBER ONE BABY!!

Okay, enough with the gloating. In all seriousness, I laid in bed well past my bedtime after Monday night’s win just thinking about how far my Philadelphia Eagles have come, not only since I’ve been a fan (wayyy back in 2003), but all throughout the organization’s history.

What separates this season from previous winning seasons, in my humble opinion, is that these wins have been so rightfully earned. We have fought from behind, scrapped against and adjusted according to each opponent.  In Carson Wentz, the Eagles have an exceptional quarterback who has only improved game in and game out with his mechanics, proving his agility and athleticism. He has taken some risks plus some wicked hits in result of those risks but most importantly, has learned from them. He makes this team so special.

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!

Introducing:  Beth Auckland, Official Reporter Washington Redskins // @bauckland

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!  Between the months of July and January every year, this is my motto, an everyday utterance that is echoed by people around the world.  Why?  And just who am I that this simple four word phrase has such meaning to me?  Well, that’s easy……

My name is Beth and I’m a die hard Redskins fan!!!

People always ask “Why are you such a fan of the Redskins?  They haven’t done anything since 1992 when they won Super Bowl 26.”  The answer is simple, my dad introduced me to the Redskins when I was a wee little one and he was introduced to the Redskins by his father, so it’s a family thing.

My dad was in the military and growing up, weekends were quality time with dad.  In the fall/winter that quality time consisted of football.  It didn’t matter if it was watching my brother play Pop Warner and eventually high school football or sitting on the couch Saturday and Sunday watching college (USC Trojans) and NFL (the Redskins if they were on), football was god in our house.
