      The Bill Callahan era began here at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. For the first quarter it was really,really bad football being played by both teams. 
      The Redskins were determined to establish the Run game. The First Quarter all they established was that they still couldn’t run. Or pass. Or do much of anything. 
       
      It wasn’t until the 2nd Quarter that Peterson was able to start ripping the worst Run D in the League for chunks of 18 & 24 yards. The Skins managed to score a TD with a 25 yard pass to Scary Terry McLaurin. 
       
      The Dolphins would open the Second Half only managing five plays before the Redskins would get the ball punted back to them. They would run a balanced run/pass attack of six plays for 70 yards in 1:25 ending in McLaurin’s second touchdown of the day. The Defense would then get a turnover allowing the Offense to get to Field Goal range and add another 3 points to make the score 17-3. 
       
      To open the Fourth Quarter, Hopkins would miss a 55 yard Field Goal, leaving the score at 17-3.  After being sacked five times, the Dolphins would pull their own switcharoo at QB and go to Ryan “Neckbeard” Fitzpatrick which resulted in a touchdown drive for them, making it 17-10. They went for & recovered the Onside Kick. They also managed to not score any points after that. The Dolphins would find theirselves with ball at the 2:00 Warning. Fitzpatrick would take them on a 9 play 75 yard touchdown drive with six seconds remaining on the clock. Miami went for the win with the 2 Point Conversion and failed. The Redskins would recover the onside kick by Miami and Keenum took a knee to get the Redskins their first win of the season.

NFC East

Recommended Posts

When is the last time the Skins beat an NFC East opponent when the other team had not packed it in for the year already? This year's Giants win and last year's Dallas win don't count because those teams were done and the games meant nothing to either team (aside from technically breaking our losing streak against the boys).

The last time I remember winning a game when it counted in the NFC East was probably as far back as 99. Anyone remember something more recent?

The last time we REALLY won and NFC East game that REALLY mattered was 1996, when we beat the Eagles in Philly to go to 8-3 and stay in first place in the division.

Of course we ended up going 9-7 and missing the playoffs that year anyway. :doh:

Henry, I KNOW I'm being nitpicky here but I would say our playoff year in 1999, we beat the Giants in November or December to go a game up in the standings....

But I know that it's been a LONG time....

We also beat the Eagles in 2001 with Marty to get to 5-5....

I thought of those. Maybe that second Giants win counts.

I don't know about that Eagles game though. When we faced them again, at home, with the division on the line, we folded like a cheap suit.

That same play-of year in '99, we beat the Giants in the Wild Card First Round play-off game to get to face Tampa in the Divisional Series. Doesn't really count as a divisional game, but it was the Giants, and it was to get to teh next round of the play-offs. Davis had a huge game, if I'm not mistaken...
