Week 4: Washington Redskins 24, Oakland Raiders 14- Post Game Thoughts

The Redskins take their first major step of the season with their first win against the Raiders in Oakland.  It is fair to say that the silver and black missed Terrelle Pryor at quarterback.  Matt Flynn started and the team’s offense was not the same.  They only ran for 104 yards and turned the ball over twice.  They also managed only 14 first downs and 298 yards overall.  This was against a Redskin defense that had been torched for three straight weeks coming into this game.  However, Washington was facing three very good offenses so the result of this game has to please all the fans back home.  By the way, it is funny how the one game where Robert Griffin III fails to pass for over 300 yards the team ends up winning.  I guess the number that really matters is 0- the number of interceptions the second year quarterback threw.  As good as the running game is for Washington, the offense still lives and breathes off of the success that RGIII has throwing the ball.  The Redskins are now tied for second place in a sub-par NFC East and have a chance to make up ground after their BYE week against Dallas in Week 6.  The Raiders play host to a much improved San Diego team next week; a team that is coming off of a massive win over the Cowboys at home.
