Redskins off to hot start, take opening drive the distance

The Redskins have been creating more questions than they’ve answered this year.

But for the moment — and it’s early yet — their offense looks well-oiled and efficient.

With Robert Griffin III directing a no-huddle attack out of the chute, the Redskins ran to a methodical 7-0 lead.

The 14-play, 71-yard drive to open the game was capped by Alfred Morris’ touchdown run. But Griffin was a perfect 5-for-5 passing for 57 yards to keep things moving.

Again, it’s early, and we’ve been through this before. But it appears that with a national audience watching, the Redskins want to prove they’re not the dysfunctional mess they’ve appeared to be all year.
