The Redskins are toting the rock


The Redskins are toting the rock

When talking about acquiring Robert Griffin III to be the teams franchise quarterback, Mike Shanahan consistently emphasized that the rookie would not be able to do it alone. In particular, Shanahan told us over and over that over the years rookie quarterbacks have needed a strong running game and a good defense.Well, RG3 is not playing with one of the better defenses around but he does have the benefit of one the better rushing games in the league. The Redskins have 702 yards rushing, an average of 175.5 yards per game, tops in the NFL through four games.Griffin himself, of course, has contributed mightily to the rushing total. He has 252 yards on the ground, good enough for 17thin the NFL.But the main man toting the rock is rookie Alfred Morris. Many wondered why the sixth-round pick was starting over Roy Helu Jr. and Evan Royster, both of whom turned in solid performances as rookies in 9=2011. Nobody is questioning the decision now as Morris is fifth in the NFL with 376 yards rushing. His four touchdowns rushing have him tied with Arian Foster and Griffin for the league lead.The Redskins last rushed for over 700 yards in the seasons first four games in 1978. It has happened just two other times in team history, in 1945 and 1958.

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.
