      We’re still doing this?  Absolutely!  Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option.  The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch.  Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game.   

      Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg).  The first team to 15 wins!  With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game are largely limited to watching young players (hopefully) develop.  Dwayne Haskins gets his first home start and Derrius Guice is back from injury.   
       
      My, reasonable, goals for today’s game:  
      1- Score a touchdown 
      2- Score more than 17 points.   
      3- Haskins throws for 200 yards or more with no interceptions  
      4- Guice runs the ball at least 10 times and finishes at 3.5 yards per carry and healthy.  
       
      Hoping for a win at this point feels like setting myself up for disappointment, so I’m happy to settle for an entertaining loss.  
       
      Special thanks to @pez for some excellent Guinness beef stew.  If you absolutely have to stand in a frozen parking lot at 9am, the best place to do it is at the Extremeskins Tailgate with Pez and @Huly.  Great fans, great people. 
       
      The Redskins have declared for the following players as inactive: 
      Paul Richardson  
      Colt McCoy 
      Deshazor Everett 
      Chris Thompson  
      Ross Pierschbacher 
      Vernon Davis  
      Tim Settle  
       
      The Jets declared the following players as inactive  
      Nate Hairston  
      Darryl Roberts  
      Paul Worrilow 
      Matthias Farley  
      CJ Mosley  
      Jordan Willis  
      Leo Koloamatangi 
       
      1st Quarter - Redskins 0 - 6 Jets
      If you wanted to sit in the cold and watch a football game with some Jets fans at FedEx, but were worried that there were not enough seats available, I have good news.  There’s plenty of space available, so come on down and prove you’re a real fan by sitting though this in person.
       
      Jets dominated the 1st quarter even though they only scored 6 points.  The reason being that Washington managed only 13 yards of offense and a single first down.  
       
      Question: Is it still a check down pass if the QB never looks at anyone else?
       
      2nd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      The Jets have achieved an insurmountable 13 point lead early in the 2nd quarter.  All hope is lost.

      Is there a more perfect example of the Redskins offense than their first scoring drive in the 2nd quarter?  Interception gives the Redskins the ball on the Jets 16 yard line.  They proceed to march 10 yards backwards before kicking a field goal from the Jets 26.  It's perfect.  Two or three more field goals we can call it a day. 

      The Jets score again and if feels like they are are just piling on at this point.  Three touchdowns in the first half for them, just three points for the redskins.  Our streak of no touchdowns has now extended to 15 quarters. 
       
      3rd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      There is a spider slowly descending from the ceiling in the press box and it's the most interesting thing that's happened during the third quarter of this game. 
       
      I have decided to allow the spider to live, provided it does not touch me.  I'm off to get some more caffeine. 

      4th Quarter - Redskins 17 - 34 Jets
      The first wave of Redskins fans, the few that are here, started streaming towards the exits after that 4th Jets touchdown.  As if the Jets didn't have this game wrapped up in the 2nd quarter. 
       
      Jet have now more than doubled their average points per game and have matched their season high of 34 points (and they missed two field goals in this game). 
       
      TOUCHDOWN REDSKINS!  THE DROUGHT IT OVER!  Guice took a short pass from Haskins  all the way to the house.  2 point conversion is successful on a pass from Haskins to Quinn. 
       
      The Redskins score another touchdown!  This feels like an embarrassment of riches, even if we are still certain to lose this game. 
       
      End of Game.
       
      Let's review those reasonable goals I mentioned earlier:
       
      1- Success.
      2- Close enough, I'm counting it
      3- Haskins did throw for over 200, but unfortunately did have an interception. 
      4- Guice was not given the opportunity to run the ball ten times today.  He did however score on a 45 yard TD pass and finish the game healthy.  I'll take it.
       
      Even though the Redskins lost, it was good to see the offense show some faint signs of life and end the streak of games without a TD.  The team looked competitive for much of the second half, and perhaps they could have made this a fun game if they carried that same energy throughout.  It was good to see Guice and Mclaurin show out today.  I think both of them have a future with this team that I look forward to seeing.

Annual "Where Do I Watch Games Thread"

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried NFL Game Rewind from NFL.com? I am going to be studying abroad for the fall semester and I was wondering about this as an alternative to the gamepass which is two hundred or so dollars. I was looking at the $40 one. How does this work? Can I watch the game the day after or immediately after it airs? Because chances are I wont be able to watch the games live anyways. I just wanna know how soon I can watch them after they air.

Edit: Heres the link https://gamerewind.nfl.com/nflgr/secure/packages?ttv=0&ttp=3

After jumping through many hoops, I was able to get someone from Preseason Live to confirm the Redskins/Bills game is not blacked out tomorrow night, except in D.C. and Buffalo markets, on Preseason Live. But on a side note, barely half of the preseason games will be available on Preseason Live, well, live. They should be more upfront about that.

Does the dc market strictly pertain to Washington dc, or is northern va included in that market. I live in Centreville, and am still unsure whether or not I'll be able to view the game.

All I got was the D.C. "market". I'm not sure what that entails. Though I'm 5 hours from Jacksonville here, and the guy informed me that that game would be blacked out for me(NOO!!!). If you have Preseason Live, you can log in and it should show you whether or not its blacked out in your area, as Sikbug pointed out to me earlier. Hail.

I was able to watch games in Lynchburg VA during school last year. So I'd assume yes.

yeah I just don't want to pay 20 dollars to find out whether the game is blacked out in my area. I assume from your comment that information regarding the areas the game is blacked out, is only available if you pay 20 dollars, and sign up for an account. seems ridiculous.. but thanks for the info

Really appreciate the info....so to dial it in a little further...I am from the DC market - but I'll be watching it in Maine. Can I sign up for Preseason Live and stream the game on Preseason Live that evening or will I need to wait 24 hours?

I have never had a game blacked out because I'm not in the local market. I believe that if you are out of the area, the game will play for you just fine. It uses your location at the time of the broadcast/stream and not the location from your profile. If I'm wrong then I apologize but I really believe that it's where you're watching from when you try to watch it.

On what free local station in the DC area will the game be on? It's usually the NBC affiliate, but the Olympics are on instead. I'm seeing "wshns nonstop" in the Titan TV Guide listings, but I'm not sure if that's a free station or a cable station.

You should be fine in Maine for the Bills game. The dude told me only DC and Buffalo markets were blacked out. I'd think Maine was New England market. So I'd say go for it, and you should def get the first game no prob.

I have to go off the grid starting right before kickoff tomorrow, until the replay on NFL network Friday. This is the first year in a long time that I have a job that has me working hours late enough that for the east coast preseason games, I won't be home until the game is half over, and since this is the first preseason in awhile I am really excited for I don't want to READ the results of what happens before I see them.

I will probably be listening to 'Skins radio all day up until kickoff, and then no internet or phone updates for 24ish hours. Which also means....no extremeskins.....wow.

Can I do it?

If that NFL.com plan included iphone streaming I'd probably buckle down and spend the $20, it's a good deal, but looks like it is computers/tablets only.

I purchased the NFL live deal as well. It is for computers and tablets only. My wife will be at work and wanted to stream it on her phone but it isnt available.

Just a heads up, stoogetv.com has the links already up for all the preseason games including ours. You have to register, but it's free (to register). I've watched the games online there for the past 2 years and never had any problems, but I noticed this year all the NFL games are listed under the Vipbox tab. Anyone have any idea if this is still free? I'm assuming it is b/c this site has always been free, and I don't see any buttons/tabs to click where you would pay to stream the games.

I did the NFL.com Preseason deal too... though, it should be part of the sunday Ticket!!! but its pretty reasonable at $20.

but, no way to watch on an IPAD!

I do have an HDMI output on my laptap, so I can watch on my 65 inch LED.

It works like a DVR you can watch it from the start after it's already started.

I can't remember the free streams. I know it's not Atdhe.net or Justin.tv. There's another sports one that has the free streams

Looks like Atdhe.net has a feed

If you have preseason live and it is blacked out in your area. Just do a search for free proxies. It fools the system into thinking you are located elsewhere.

I live in PA and somehow I am "in the skins market" per NFL preseason live. However I do not get NBC channel 4 to watch on TV and CSN is blacked out. So I will be using a proxy tonight.

Im hoping the Live lookin on NFL Network will cover most if not all of RGIII's plays. Yea, i wanna see the whole game but i cant bring myself to spend the $20 on it when i will be able to see it Saturday on the replay for free. Plus the one game we all wanna see against the Colts will be on live on NFLN.

that is an awesome idea. For anyone who doesn't know how to do that google free proxy servers and then look up how to enter them into your browser. For IE it's located at the following location - locate the wheel on the top right of your browser and click on internet options - then click on connections and then click on LAN settings. Enter the server IP address and port and click ok to save it. You are now using a proxy server which will make your IP address appear to come from a different location
