Here are the weekly stock up-stock down report from the Redskins’ 31-6 win over the Eagles.
Up—Robert Griffin III, no explanation needed.
Down—After starting at strong safety for much of the season in place of the injured Brandon Meriweather,Reed Doughty played just two snaps on defense despite the fact that Meriweather went out with an injury in the third quarter.
Up—Even though he missed almost 30 snaps on defense due to an injury, London Fletcher still led the team in tackles with 12. He also had a hand in DeAngelo Hall’s early interception, which set up an early score and set the tone for the game.
Down—Pierre Garçon caught just three passes for a net of three yards in his return to the lineup after a four-game absence.
Up—Meriweather was all over the field in his Redskins debut, making tackles, separating receivers from the ball, and getting an interception.
Down—However, Meriweather left the game in the third quarter with a sprained knee. He said after the game that he will be ready to play against Dallas but we will see if he can get ready on four days of rest.
Up—As Griffin pointed out, doing a “Moss” by jumping in between two defenders to grab a long pass refers to Randy Moss. But Santana Moss jumped up and took a pass away from a pair of Eagles defenders and then broke Brandon Boykin’s feeble tackle attempt and fell into the end zone. His line on the day, one reception, 69 yards, one TD. Not a long day’s work but a productive one.
Up—We were waiting for Perry Riley to have a breakout game and he came through on Sunday. He had six tackles, all of them solo and three of them for losses, one sack, two quarterback hits, and a pass defensed. He hasn’t exactly been in a slump but it was good to see his playmaking skills on display.
