"I’m still playing good football. I’m enjoying my team, my teammates. I still feel like I can contribute and help the team win. But at some point you also say that you also want to do other things."
How did 10-6 NFC East champion Washington Redskins totally reverse course after finishing last in the division at 5-11 in 2011? Defensive stability, coaches, Alfred Morris and of course, RGIII.
Matt Ryan hurt his shoulder when he was pancaked to the turf by Ahmad Brooks with 1:55 remaining. It looked ugly, and Ryan got up slowly. It was his left, non-throwing shoulder, but his next two passes were incomplete. When Atlanta recovered the ball with time left for one play, Ryan's "hail mary" only traveled 20 yards.
