Washington makes progress, only trails by three at half

Redskins' Hall runs to score a touchdown after an intercept from Lions' Stafford in their NFL football game in Landover Reuters

Washington trails 17-14 at halftime, which by this season’s standards is great news.

A Washington team that trailed 26-7 at halftime in Week One and trailed 24-0 at halftime in Week Two can be satisfied only to be trailing by three today against Detroit. Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who scored the team’s only touchdown of the first two weeks, scored another touchdown when he intercepted Matthew Stafford in the first quarter and ran it back to the end zone. Alfred Morris finally got Washington’s offense on the board in the second quarter with a touchdown run.

The question now will be whether Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III can heat up in the second half, as he has in the first two games of the season. Some have said Griffin is only playing well in the second halves because it’s garbage time, while others say Griffin needs time to get into a groove as he continues to recover from knee surgery.

If Griffin plays against the Lions the way he has in the first halves in Week One and Week Two, there’s every reason to believe he can lead Washington to its first win. If not, Washington is heading for 0-3.

    DeAngelo Hall is an elite, top 3 Cornerback in the sport period. I may have overrated Calvin Johnson as he has been SHUT DOWN. The Redskins are winning this game. Hands down. On another note, that Pizza commercial with the guy spitting out the halibat is beyond disgusting. Makes me not want to order pizza or eat for that matter. #HTTR

    Mid-season they’ll be 1-7, Bob will be holding a clipboard and Shanahan will be out of work.

    Funny how Chip Kelly gets criticized in his first year and he has a roster full of 4-12 players. Meanwhile the skins and giants look absolutely horrible. I guess the skins do look half decent when they play catch up against prevent defenses in the 2nd half.

    Baby steps. Lions are a terrible road team which only shows the skins are who we all thought they were. Over rated chumps.
