That’s right, he poured gasoline all over him and set his ass afire!
I’m talking a perfect pass rush. He ran right by the guy, swiped his hands to the side, finished with a rip and ended up with the hat trick on Stafford: sack, forced fumble and fumble recovery.
Then all of a sudden Lucas was back out there again the next series. El Oh El!!! McAdoo found success for the first time with his offense this season, and it will be intriguing to see if he can replicate it. McAdoo called runs early and often, setting up play-action passes for the turnover-prone Manning. The Giants will be challenged to run well Thursday. Washington ranks third in the league against the run at 64.7 yards allowed per game.
When was the last time you saw a defensive lineman get a lineman sent to the bench during the game only to have that guy brought back in when his backup gets whupped even worse?
Yeah, the Packers lost. Yeah, technically Peppers only had one sack, but if you watched the game you saw the kind of pass rushing performance that only a select few could ever pull off, which definitely makes him Hoss worthy in my book.
FedEx Field is known as one of the most festive and boisterous settings in the NFL. Since the days of RFK Stadium, Washington enjoys a tailgating setting that involves many well-known groups including the The Hail BBQ and The Hogs. Despite having a rabid fan base, Washington has a combined 8-9 record in its last 17 games at home.
Washington is favored by 3.5 points over the Giants, with an over/under of 45. New York is 4-9 over its last 13 games against the spread, while Washington is 5-2 covering the spread against the Giants in their last seven meetings.
