Big D is for defense, not Dallas

The 2010 Redskins season got off on a high note as they played on a national stage and defeated the Dallas Cowboys 13-7 on NBC Sports Sunday Night Football. Washington’s offense only provided six points by field goals. However, the defense came up big at the end of the first half. As time expired, DeAngelo Hall forced a fumble and ran it in for a touch down. Some stat notables from the game are running back Clinton Portis 63 yards on 18 carries. Quarter Back Donovan McNabb went 15-32 in his first game in a Redskins uniform after being traded from the Philadelphia Eagles last season. Also, corner back LaRon Landry led the defense with 17 tackles. The chief reason the Redskins won the game was that the Cowboys made many mistakes and had a lot of penalties. They had 12 penalties giving up 91 yards.
Next week the Redskins host the Houston Texans with a 4:15 kickoff. The game will be aired on CBS and can be listened to on ESPN 980.

The Nationals continue to slump. At this writing, they are on a five-game losing streak. In the last home stand the Nationals had only one win in six games. The Nats have a six game road trip before retuning home for the final ten games at Nationals Park this season. The Nats have only 19 games remaining on the schedule and currently hold a record of 60-83.
