Minicamp Day 2: Defense gets the best of it


Minicamp Day 2: Defense gets the best of it

Notes from the second and, as Mike Shanahan announced, final practice of the Redskins' minicamp. Since tweeting is not allowed from practice the notes are presented in Twitter-sized bites.--Orakpo looks great on his feet, very vocal, still being limited in team drills due to torn pectoral in season finale.--D-line and some of the backers working on some pre snap shifts. They need all of this to be second nature by the time preseason games start.--As one might guess, RG3 and Kyle are pretty well joined at the hip out here on the field. A Constant stream of feedback from teacher to pupil.--Generally speaking the run pursuit by the defense has bee excellent with a lot of hustle to the ball No pads, no contact so no grand conclusions can be drawn but still good to see. --Rob Jackson is one player who can keep up with Griffin when he's rolling out. The QB had to throw the ball away as he was running out of room. Not that Jackson could win a foot race with RG3 but he is quick and has good lateral speed.--Only surprise nonparticipant is Cooley. We will ask Shanahan about him after practice but expect it is precautionary.--Richard Crawford had both hands on a pass near the sideline and could nor hold on. It would have been a nice grab but players like Crawford need to make plays like that.--A bit of excess celebration among a few receivers after Austin caught a long TD pass from Rex. It was a Fun Bunch revival, a group high five that might be worth the 15 yards if it happened in a game.--Nice pass from Cousins to Robinson. Cousins rolled out and launched the pass just before going out of bounds at about the 45. Robinson made the grab just short of the end zone.--Rackers nails a 50-yarder right down the middle with plenty to spare. As Shanny said yesterday the competition will go all the way to the very end.---Cousins displays a good arm and quick release with passes to Paulsen and Darius Hanks.--RG3 not having one of those "can complete every pass and do anything" days. He is just flat missing some receivers. He does not look happy as he takes a break on the sideline.--Not a whole lot of action for Minnifield today. I think they saw what they needed to see yesterday.--Nice long pass from Rex to Paul but the play took so long to develop that the QB would have been sacked twice in the time it took to get rid of it.--It continues to not be Griffin's day Hall with an easy pick of an RG3 pass. QB rolled out and threw it right to the CB.Post practice--Shanahan said that the players will meet in the morning, do a workout, but there will be no practice.--Shanahan said that Cooley was out due to a minor hamstring pull. He probably would have gone if it was the regular season.--Shanahan said that he expects all injured players to be ready for the start of training camp.--Santana Moss said, The defense got the better of the offense today.

Redskins vs. Bengals: London game time, TV channel, how to watch

The Redskins and Bengals are headed across the pond for a pivotal Week 8 game in London, England.

The Redskins (4-3), saw their four-game win streak snapped in Week 7 thanks to a heartbreaking 20-17 loss to the Lions. The Bengals (3-4) snapped a two-game losing streak with a 31-17 win over the Browns in Week 7.

With the game taking place in London, the start time is going to be different than your typical Sunday. Much different. 

The NFL International Series Game between the Redskins and Bengals takes place at the world-famous Wembley Stadium, the host venue for the FA Cup and English National Soccer Team. The Week 8 game in London will be the Redskins's second regular season international game, having played the Buffalo Bills in Toronto on Oct. 30, 201l.

The Redskins have played overseas twice, both games coming in the preseason. They played at Wembley Stadium during the 1992 preseason and in Osaka Japan during the 2002 preseason.

When does time does the Redskins-Bengals game in London start? How can I watch the Redskins-Bengals game? CSN Mid-Atlantic has those questions (and more) covered.
