Washington Loses Early Lead And Game For Second Straight Week


For the second week in a row, the Washington Redskins (0-2) blew an early lead only to lose to the Dallas Cowboys (2-0) 31-21.

Redskins’ quarterback Case Keenum led the Redskins to a second quarter touchdown to go up 7-0 but the offense stalled for the rest of the first half and a major part of the second half. Keenum completed 26 of 37 for 221 yards and two touchdowns.

Running back Adrian Peterson got the start and made history by moving ahead of Jim Brown to fourth place of all-time rushing touchdowns (107) when he scored in the second quarter. He finished with only 25 yards on 10 carries.

Rookie wide receiver Terry McLaurin led the Redskins in receiving with catches for 62 yards and a touchdown.

“This one means a lot more than the other ones will when I pass them because Jim Brown is a guy looked up to,” stated Peterson.

Dallas was led by Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. Prescott threw for 269 passing yards completing 26/30 and three touchdowns. Elliott rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown on 23 attempts.

The Redskins will face the Chicago Bears on 9/23 at FedEx Field.
