The home fans didn’t seem happy most of the day as their team failed to show up.

Washington, which began the day looking to build on a 5-2 record, was never in the game against the Falcons. Atlanta won its third consecutive game, moving to 4-4.

The Falcons had their way, gaining 491 yards against one of the league’s best defenses in an easy 38-14 victory. Everything went right for Atlanta, including Julio Jones getting his first touchdown of the season.

Atlanta scored five touchdowns, kicked a field goal, threw an interception and punted twice on nine possessions.

Matt Ryan went 26-of-38 for 350 yards, four touchdowns and an interception. Jones caught seven passes for 121 yards and a touchdown, which came on his 60th reception of the year and ended a 12-game regular-season drought without one. Calvin Ridley made six catches for 71 yards and a touchdown before leaving to be checked for a head injury.

Tevin Coleman had 13 carries for 88 yards, while catching five passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns. Ito Smith had 60 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries.

Jack Crawford had two of the Falcons’ three sacks of Alex Smith.

Smith completed 30 of 46 passes for 306 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Maurice Harris caught 10 passes for 124 yards. Adrian Peterson had nine carries for 17 yards.

  1. It would be so easy to sit back and destroy the Redskins team and fans for todays game. Eagles fans Cowboys fans could just sit back and attack. Especially after all the smack talk from “the Fans”. Yet thats all that we do week in and week out. This division is a roller coaster, as seen a two game lead can be erased in just two weeks. Yes we hate each other, yes we hate every screen name that trolls our sites and comments section but can we all agree that this division will come down to the last game because there will be no wild card team from the Beast. Eagles Cowboys Redskins we all have issues, holes, injuries and questionable coaching calls. But lets ease off the hate raid until the coaster comes to a complete stop.
    ” if we cant have peace in the Beast then how does one start at World peace”?

    … okay im done being civil, time to sit back and A T T A C K !!!! Get Em Guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Hey. NFC East. We are all stinking up the joint. Who will win. Ask me in 8-9 weeks. Until then, it is a crap shoot.

  3. Take note of the deafening silence from one LogicalVoice after crowing so much last week.

  4. Ya know None of can talk REAL smack until week 16. hey Redskins you are still in first place. its cool for another week.
    show up and blow up and tell us to shut up! records dont lie. nor to rings.

  5. anyone else have their phones in a British females voice? And then you swear at the phone like you are really talking to the girl at the other end, like she actually exists? Mainly when im seeking directions, but now is working as well. Only to see other people at the sports bar doing the same thing, then you think yeah im good….

  6. My Skins were very disappointing today. Missing Trent Williams, Crowder and Thompson hurt but hats off to Atlanta. Their O looked very good today. #HTTR

  7. Redskin fans aren’t crying.. I’ve been a fan since the mid 80’s, I’ve seen a lot of good games and a lot of bad games. This was neither. The Falcons are a good football team that is building momentum. They owned us from early on but we’re not talking Raiders here, we’re talking Falcons. This team is good but no one mistakes the Redskins for a Super Bowl contender. If we’re looking at 10 wins and a playoff berth, they’ve outplayed my expectations this year.

  8. Jake6879: Exactly, 10-6 and win division is more than I expected this year. A playoff win would be icing but I’m not even expecting that. Better than last year.

  9. Watching the Redskins earlier today, it seems their formula for winning is straight out of the ’80s. With a mediocre secondary and a weak WR corps, they have absolutely no ability to play from behind.

    “Three yards and a cloud of dust” isn’t going to cut it against the more explosive offenses in football, and ATL exposed that in spades today. (So did NO and IND earlier this year.)

    Bottom line: even with their underwhelming play the first half of 2018 factored in, there is absolutely no reason Eagles shouldn’t win this division.

  10. EVERY CB GIVES UP A TOUCHDOWN OR TWO TO A PRO BOWL WR AND VICE VERSA. NORMAN IS NOT TRASH, NOR IS HE UNBEATABLE, BUT HE IS A DAHM GOOD CORNER WHOM JUST GOT BREAT ON A PLAY. ASK SANDERS IF HE WAS EVER BEATEN…
    FIRST PLACE IS STILL FIRST PLACE P E R I O D ! WE WANT WHAT THEY HAVE. F I R S T P L A C E . WE ALL LOSE, BUT HOW WILL YOU GET BACK UP ?

  11. HTTR just a bump in the road!!If we had RG111 today we would have won. Well maybe if we had Kurt it would of been closer? With Alex maybe we already won the first 7 games of the division (But That doesn’t count know does it?

  12. I said this after last week’s game. This game and the next two are the defining games for the Redskins this season. They need to take 2 of those 3 (so they need to win the next two), in order to be taken seriously as a playoff contender. Right now no team in the NFC East is better then a “1 and done” in the playoffs. Now we got two more offenses in the Bucs and Texans coming up that can put up strong numbers. These, in my opinion, are must win games.
