Goal line stand: 'One of the best moments I've been a part of'
Your Monday morning open thread:
The Redskins snatched victory from the jaws of defeat as the parlayed a late-game goal line stand and an overtime touchdown drive into a 30-24 win over San Diego. It was a game they could have clinched a couple of times and one they could very well have lost.
Plenty of stars for the Redskins, a lot of them on offense with their 500-yard performance.
--Pierre Garçon, 7 receptions for 172 yards, including some spectacular one-handed grabs.
--Alfred Morris, who set season highs with both his 23 carries and 121 rushing yards
--Darrel Young, 3 rushing touchdowns, all on third and one
--Robert Griffin III bounced back nicely from a bad game in Denver, going 23 of 32 for 291 yards including 4-4 for 39 yards in the game-winning drive in OT.
Let's not forget the defense:
--David Amerson with a key fourth-quarter interception that set up a field goal
--E. J. Biggers with his second-quarter interception that set up the Redskins' first touchdown.
--London Fletcher, who had 13 tackles
--Barry Cofield, who didn't show up on the stat sheet, had a solid day disrupting the Chargers' run game, including on the first and goal play late in OT. He anticipated, penetrated, and disrupted, like a nose tackle is supposed to do.
Any other nominations are certainly welcome.
