After Graham Gano’s field goal with 1:07 left in the 2nd quarter the Redskins found themselves down four points 10-6. The score may seem unremarkable to most, but to a Redskins team that was anemic on offense the last few weeks, this is almost an explosion. The ball is moving, Rex is 9/12 for 103 yards and an interception on a route where wide receiver Leonard Hankerson fell down. Grossman seems much more comfortable in the pocket and is actually visibly skinnier. Some are attributing the weight loss to the bout of pneumonia he just went through. Either way, Grossman is doing just fine behind center.
On defense, Kevin Barnes showed up big with an interception of Dolphins QB Matt Moore. The Redskins, however, have stalled in the redzone and missed a field goal attempt. They need to convert all opportunities into points. This Dolphins team looks down and a touchdown or two could put this game over the edge.
