Redskins' latest loss is nothing special

Despite playing for the first time in two weeks, the Redskins fell to 1-4 with a disappointing 31-16 loss to the Cowboys in a big NFC East game Dallas.

It was a performance that left the team’s quarterback, who completed 19 of 39 passes for 246 yards, promising that it isn’t giving up. “There’s no quit in this team. Period,” Robert Griffin III said. “You’ll never see us out there quit. I tell it to the guys every single time we go out there: If you don’t want to be out here to win, don’t come.”

Although Griffin appeared to have regained some speed and mobility, a loss is still a loss. “There are no moral victories. Period,” he said. “Especially on this team.”

Coach Mike Shanahan promised that special teams, whose play was so atrocious Sunday night, would merit special attention with the Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos up next.

They’ll be back next Sunday at 1 p.m. and so will we. Thanks for staying up late with us tonight.
