"Kurt came in and did a great job," said Williams. "I mean, Robert is a great player, but it does take 11 players to win. Kurt came in and we couldn’t ask him to do any more than he did. He led us down the field. He got us a two-point conversion. You can’t write a script better than that."

"It's sore right now, but he wanted to go back into the game, which is a good sign," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan told the media. "It's a positive." "I knew as soon as I got hit, as I screamed, like a man, of course. It hurt real bad," Griffin said before adding: "I'm going to be all right. Nothing's broken."

"Let’s do this. Let’s talk about the Redskins," Gibbs said. " I told them it’s a good time to visit, right now, to visit Redskins Park. We’re hot, man. It’s great. Everybody, I think, down there at Joe Gibbs Racing, everybody is a Redskinner … and we always follow every single play thing that’s happening and every single game. It’s fun."

Shanahan not worried about Alfred Morris’s fumbles
"To be honest with you, fumbles are going to occur," the coach said. "You have to practice it every day with the defense, trying to strip the ball from you. We haven’t had as much contact [in recent practices] with the Monday night game and obviously playing on Sunday, some short weeks. We’ll get back to trying to strip the ball, putting him in those situations where he gets those good habits back."

Five observations from the Redskins’ win over the Ravens
Resilience shows once again – Yesterday’s game was yet another matchup that had all the makings of a classic Redskins collapse. From the defense’s sudden inability to stop the run, continued ineffectiveness against the pass, the cold streak the offense suffered from the second quarter on, an apparent turnover (that wound up being reversed) when the Redskins needed to orchestrate a comeback drive, all the way down to Griffin’s injury with less than two minutes left … it was all there.

Green: Redskins Have Strength Of Character

"What about this generation? I like these young men," he said. "I think you have a good base of character young men and I think that’s what people always wondered about. "They still want to talk about Charles Mann and Darrell Green and Art Monk and all those guys, but I think we do have some solid young men here today."

Shanahan and Co. delivering in Year 3 - NFC East Blog - ESPN

The last two weeks, Haslett and his staff have made game-altering halftime adjustments, switching at the game's midpoint to more man-to-man coverage in the secondary and a more intense pass rush. The emergence of outside linebacker Rob Jackson as a pass-rushing threat has helped, but the timing of the move is critical. The Redskins aren't going to succeed, with their defensive personnel, if they plan man-to-man coverage and rush the passer like crazy all game. They need to hold it close in the first half and deploy their more aggressive strategy in the second in order to get the most out of it. Sunday, they held back in the first half but sent extra rushers after Baltimore's Joe Flacco in the second, and the numbers indicate that it rattled him.

"I was trying to just think about it like being out at practice every day," he said. "I just tried to stay calm, just make good contact with it and knock it through." It didn’t even matter that the FedEx Field turf was chewed up from rain and more than four quarters of football. Holder Sav Rocca had his spot, and Forbath patted down the grass with his hand to make sure everything was all right.

"I knew I messed up," an inconsolable Paul said afterward. "It can't happen. It shouldn't happen. It should never happen." Because there was a turnover on the play, it was automatically reviewed in the booth. It was unclear if Reed gained possession before going out of bounds. "I was hoping that the [replay] was turned over and the ball was out of bounds," Paul said.

Left tackle Trent Williams went one further: He dreamed up what would happen at FedEx Field. "I dreamed it was an overtime [game]," Williams said. Then what happened? "We won," he said with a smile, shortly after the 31-28 victory over the Baltimore Ravens that propelled the Redskins to 7-6.
