    Week 3: Redskins 27 Lions 24

    Lots of hard hitting in this one, as the Redskins visit Ford Field. The Skins would start with the ball and despite having a decent drive, they would end up kicking a field goal. The Lions would eventually end up with 1st and goal, but would settle for a field goal after Haynesworth rallied the defense to stop a couple of runs.

    Washington would continue to frustrate the Lions in short yardage situations, allowing only 4 3rd down conversions all game. The second quarter would be dominated by the Redskins as a result, although not necessarily on the scoreboard. First Kasay would kick another figgie, and then on their next possession, Jason Campbell would hit Santana Moss for a 46yd touchdown. The Lions would have a great 2 minute drill before the end of the half to close the gap, with Stafford hitting Johnson in the endzone. The score was 13-10 when the cheerleaders came out to strut their stuff.

    Things looked pretty steady in the second half until Washington recognized an all-out blitz and Campbell found newcomer TE Jerramy Stevens who would enjoy a 68yd cakewalk to the endzone, and things were looking up for the visiting team. Following the kickoff though, the Lions would come out in a Wildcat formation and catch the defense offguard, allowing Maurice Morris unfettered access to the sideline and subsequently the endzone 66yds later.

    The home crowd would go wild shortly after in the 4th quarter when the Lions would take the lead following a Campbell interception. Morris would score his 2nd rushing TD of the night, punching it in from the 3 yard line.

    Then the Lions would cough up the ball on a questionable fumble, but the Redskins would end up being forced to punt. Momentum swung back suddenly however when Andre Carter picked off Stafford deep in Washington territory. The Skins would find themselves hardpressed to move downfield, and facing 4th and 4 from the Detroit 44, Campbell would throw an incomplete pass towards the slot receiver - but wait! The referees ruled pass interference on the play! On the next play, Campbell would throw his 3rd TD pass of the night, this time a 37yard effort after Randle El would pushoff on his defender.
    After the kickoff, Stafford would throw his second interception of the game to Fred Smoot and the visiting team would kneel out to win.

    Final Score Washington 27 Detroit 24.

    great great game. Great trenches play by both squads. Morriss couldnt be better and our DEfense is stout Stafford needs to cool it on the turnovers and we will be poised for a run if we can get things clicking soon. We gotta stop lettin these tight games get away all our games we wwere capable f winning but turnovers were the issue that held us from getting there!
