The Redskins sit atop the NFC East at 4-2 after Sunday
« Online: Dezembro 06, 2018, 11:52:57 pm »
 afternoons victory at home over the Cowboys. This was a defensive battle from the get-go Cheap Josh Doctson Jersey , and quite fittingly, it was the Redskins defense who scored on a strip-sack to give them a 10 point lead with just under five minutes to play. The Cowboys missed a field goal that would have sent the game into overtime preserving the victory for the Skins. Below are my Studs and Duds of the game, followed by some notes. Studs:Adrian Peterson - AP whipped Father Time’s butt yet again Sunday afternoon, gashing the Cowboys defense for 99 rushing yards and catching one pass for 8 yards. He is the ultimate warrior out there on the field.The offensive line - Trent Williams and company kept Smith clean for much of the afternoon (allowed just one sack) and paved the way for 130 rushing yards. This group looks so much better with Roullier back at center (who BTW is a stud). Ryan Kerrigan - Kerrigan showed up and it was in a BIG way. The veteran outside linebacker was stout all day against the run, but it was his impact in the passing game that was the difference maker. He notched 5 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 pass defended, and multiple quarterback pressures Jamison Crowder Jersey , but it was his sack and forced fumble that was recovered for a touchdown by Preston Smith that was the difference in the game. Preston Smith- Smith did not record a sack, but he was a menace on defense, harassing Dak Prescott all afternoon, and drew a key holding penalty early in the game. He recorded multiple quarterback hits and pressures that disrupted Prescott throwing the football, and his timely fumble recovery of a Kerrigan strip-sack for a touchdown was huge!Daron Payne/Jonathan Allen - The Alabama due was active all afternoon, plugging holes so Elliott had no wear to run, and pushing the pocket to disrupt the rhythm of Prescott. Allen notched a sack and assisted on a tackle for a loss, while Payne had 4 tackles and a pass defended. Both men had multiple quarterback pressures. Zach Brown/Mason Foster - The duo combined for 18 tackles Cheap Trent Williams Jersey , 1.5 tackles for a loss, and a few quarterback pressures. Better yet, they held Ezekiel Elliott to just 33 yards on 15 carries. D.J. Swearinger - Swearinger came out early and set the tone on defense with some big hits and a near miraculous interception on sideline. He forced a Prescott fumble which he recovered on a fourth and one early in the first quarter when the Cowboys decided to try and sneak for the first down. The defense seemed to feed off the veteran safety’s play all afternoon. Cowboys long-snapper - Thank goodness for that snap infraction at the end of the game. If it wasn’t for that, the game would likely have went into overtime. Duds:Greg Stroman - Stroman was torched in coverage yet again by another rookie, as Michael Gallup made him look silly on a double move which he blew by the unsuspecting corner for a 49 yards touchdown.He also fair caught a punt midway through the third quarter with no one within 10 yards of him. Fabian Moreau - Moreau struggled in the slot, allowing receivers way too much separation and uncontested catches. The catch at the end of the game by Beasley could have proven costly (thankfully the FG was missed). I’d have liked to see him on the outside with Stroman in the slot. Tony Romo - My goodness, could he be any more of a Cowboys homer in the broadcast booth? That was sickening!Notes: - Alex Smith was far from perfect this game, but I did see him take some shots to covered receivers (mainly Doctson) Youth Josh Norman Jersey , who hauled in some of his well thrown balls. He also pressed the ball deep and just missed on some near connections. It may take a few more games, but I think we are seeing him become a bit more comfortable in this offense. That miss to Sprinkle in the end zone early in the third quarter however was inexcusable.-Josh Doctson was not getting much separation, but he did a great job of hauling in some nice throws in coverage. Credit Alex for putting the ball on him and giving him a chance. For the first time all season, Doctson looked like he was playing with a chip on his shoulder. - Michael Floyd needs to come down with that Hail Mary at the end of the half.Redskins cuts tracker: Tracking Washington's roster moves, trades, rumors, updates and more Roster Cuts(23)WR Shay FieldsLB Jerod FernandezWR Dan Williams OL Kendall CalhounTE Matt FlanaganTE/FB J.P.
