Week two of the 2015 NFL Preseason is here! The Redskins first game against the Cleveland Browns saw some missed opportunities on offense, some long shots making an impressions, and a come from behind victory that many future grocery baggers of America will never forget. The Mason/Brennan Hype! Awards started and there will be more candidates making the list this week.
This week will have the Haloti Ngata and the Detroit Lions travelling to FedEx Field. The Lions are coming off of a 23-3 victory of the New York Jets. The Lions starting offense was able to score when Matthew Stafford connected with Golden Tate early.

And rookie RB Ameer Abdullah put some work in on the ground.

The Redskins will once again try to get up to a quarter of play from their starters depending on the flow of the game. Robert Griffin III will be without WR DeSean Jackson again, and rookie Jamison Crowder will have to wait another week to live up to the hype on the field. The Redskins will be auditioning tight ends to see who will join the oft-injured Jordan Reed on the roster this year following the season-ending injuries to Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen recently.
