Redskins’ passer says “it’s a fine line” between protecting the ball and being too conservative. Sunday’s matchup against Aaron Rodgers could test that balance.

The former first-round picks worked out for Washington on Monday. Elsewhere, running back Rob Kelley is waiting to find out if he'll need surgery on his injured toe.

Washington's players say they aren't concerned after their struggles in Sunday's loss, but a matchup with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers awaits.

The safety's two interceptions weren't enough to prevent a disappointing performance against the Colts.

Amanda Blackhorse says despite setbacks in court native people are winning the battle.

Other than all the badness, things were pretty good. But there was a lot of badness.

A look at the good and mostly bad from Washington's 21-9 loss to the Colts.

  • Perspective

There’s a fine line between a multifaceted offense and a confused one. After failing to produce a TD against the Colts, it’s pretty clear where Washington falls.

The sellout streak is now a distant memory, and the announced figure of 57,013 for Sunday’s loss to Colts was easily the lowest for an opener in FedEx Field history.

  • Perspective

Washington could have used the cushion of a 2-0 start ahead of matchups with Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees.

Starting offensive linemen Trent Williams and Brandon Scherff were both banged up in Washington's home opener, a forgettable afternoon for the offensive line.

A week after the unit shined in a win over Arizona, the Redskins’ offense fails to score a touchdown.

Adrian Peterson was limited to 20 yards rushing on 11 carries in an ugly loss at home.

Washington players and coaches express frustration after the defeat, which was the first time in 50 years the team had to announce it did not sell out.

For competitors, parents and fans, games at RFK Stadium are “a big deal.”

  • Perspective

The mood is clear entering the home opener vs. the Colts: fun, silly but still professional. A win would give a little more credibility to the notion that they’re making progress.
