In the last game of the Games That Do Not Count, 2015 Edition, Colt McCoy led the Redskins to a loss, something the team hasn't experienced very often during the past several preseasons.

McCoy played the entire game, being taken down for 3 sacks and going 22 for 33, racking up 208 yards, 1 TD, 1 fumble, and 1 interception.  The game lacked major competition among wide receivers, as Rashad Ross was the clear standout, totaling 10 receptions, 103 yards, and 1 TD.  Trey Williams and Mack Brown did the most work at running back, with a combined 28 rushes for 93 yards, and Trey Williams flashed at the position before going out with an ankle injury.  On the offensive line, Spencer Long struggled, missing blocks, earning two holding penalties, and allowing at least one sack.

Several bigger name defensive players saw the field tonight, including DeAngelo Hall, David Amerson, and Bashaud Breeland (who played into the fourth quarter).  Jackson Jeffcoat continued to make plays at OLB, and he fought his way to 1 sack and 2 tackles.  Terrance Plummer also had bright moments, and Martrell Spaight looked good - mostly solid, with a few moments of what appeared to be uncertainty.

On special teams, Kai Forbath went 1 for 2 on field goals, missing a 56 yarder (wide right on a kick that didn't count, due to a time out, and wide left on the actual kick).  Tress Way was reliable, as per usual, averaging about 48 yards per punt on 5 punts.  Rashad Ross took most of the kick return duties and did fine, though he didn't "wow" here as he did during his moments at wide receiver.

Trey Williams, as mentioned earlier, injured his ankle and was deemed questionable to return.  C Josh LeRibeus left the game with a calf injury and was ruled out for the rest of the game, and TE Derek Carrier was checked for a concussion, but was cleared.  (Thankfully, that one seems to be more clear cut than some other concussions we've seen lately.)
