The Washington Redskins defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 45-7, yesterday. And as famously quoted by Bill Murray, “It’s Groundhog Day. Again.”
Today's game, in which the Redskins (5-0) built a 20-0 lead in the third quarter, was similar to their first Super Bowl in another way: their defense also dominated.
Clean and simple, Washington dismantled a first-place team, making the Rams (3-1) seem as easy to beat as St. Louis, Dallas, or the Colts. To these Redskins, foils come in all shapes and sizes.
With the Redskins ahead by 24 points midway through the fourth period, Coach Joe Gibbs was still running Joe Washington on end-around plays and sending Art Monk deep down the middle on fly patterns.
The Redskins defeated Dallas, 31-10, representing Washington's largest margin of victory in this rivalry.
The Redskins football dominance and quest for their third straight Super Bowl Championship came on the third play of the day: wide receiver Art Monk ran like a ghost ship on a simple post pattern down the right sideline.
In just a little over a decade, the back-to-back Super Bowl Champions, Washington Redskins, have a chance for the improbable, or should I say it, the inevitable. I predict the Washington Redskins are destined to be the first team to win three straight Super Bowls.
