Redskins-Patriots - end of 3rd quarter

The 4th quarter is about to start, and I must say I’m not surprised that the 3rd quarter featured interceptions, penalties, and a touchdown for each team.  By the way, the Redskins just committed their 13th penalty of the game to start the 4th quarter, and it was a big one – 15 yards for roughing the passer.

Back to the 3rd quarter wrap-up.  Colt Brennan looks capable but is inconsistent.  He hit Marko Mitchell for a sweet 30-yard scoring strike.  Mitchell continues to shine.  Brennan was understandibly ecstatic.  He needed a lift.  Chade Daniel is breathing down his neck, so to speak.  At least Brennan doesn’t get called Brennans by sportscasters all the time.

There’s 12 1/2 minutes to go in the 4th quarter.  The Patriots are running through the Redskins’ defense like it’s a walk in the park.  Since the score is 24 to 24, and the Patriots are on the Skins’ 11 yard line, now would be a good time for the Skins to tighten up that run defense.   HB Blades to the rescue – he stuffed a run play and may have forced a fumble.  Zorn is challenging the ruling that the runner was down by contact before he fumbled.

Spotlight on Kevin Barnes – he had a nice interception during the 3rd quarter, and then was called for a non-existent illegal contact penalty.  I guess the refs just wanted to get some practice in throwing the flag and making mistakes.  Barnes looks comfortable out there.  Go Terps.  Speaking of Terps – Marcus Mason is having a monster game.

The replay ref is about to rule – the ball definitely came out before the back was down.  The Skins have the ball on their own 10 yard line with 11:37 to go in the game.
