jason is here with some missed opportunities. right, jason? >> that's correct, chris. mistakes and turnovers doomed the redskins today in houston. they had plenty of chances throughout the course of this game to make it interesting, but whenever anything positive happened for the skins, it was messed up in miscue. second quarter, skins down 7-6, he's down to punt and it gets blocked by alfred blue. you are not my boy, blue. houston scores. they take a 14-6 lead. third quarter now. skins with the first and goal inside the 10. rg 3 trips trying to hand off the ball to alfred moore. it's fumbled away. j.j. watt covers it. griffin trips over one of his offensive lineman's feet. 17-6 the final. after the game, jay gruden was asked about how he felt about
losing his coaching debut. >> sick, sick, sick. you only have one first time and i failed to get it done. we failed as a staff to get it done. your emergence has to rise and your preparation, and hopefully it will. >> we feel sorry we didn't win for our head coach. we'll have to regroup, watch film and get better from it. >> later on we'll go back to houston where diane rocini is standing by about a locker room report. the redskins name controversy followed the team all the way to houston. a group of native americans was outside today's game, protesting the team's mascot. they held signs that read, your r word is racist, and indians are human beings, not mascots. a few texas fans heckled that group as they went in the stadium. they continue to stand by the name, calling it a badge of
honor. sports analysts like tony dungy says they won't use it anymore. it started with a call to police. two toddlers having trouble breathing. now they're dead and homicide is working on the case. everything is focused at the home in cheverly. everything in the neighborhood is a crime scene, and investigators are looking for a motive to explain what happened. it began with a 2:15 a.m. call to the fire department which appeared at first to be a medical emergency. first responders realized soon that it could be more. they called on police for assistance. >> the children removed and taken to a local hospital, where they have both been pronounced deceased. >> reporter: homicide detectives carried bags of evidence from the scene. a sign on the door indicates there is a home office
both doors appear to have been dusted for fingerprints. still, early indications are police have some strong leads. >> investigators are working with a potential suspect. >> reporter: they also said there is no need for the community to fear. reaction we commonly get from neighbors that we spoke to is that that sort of thing doesn't happen in this sort of neighborhood. >> it's a quiet neighborhood. nothing ever happens in cheverly, and it's shocking what happened here. >> it surprises me hugely. i'm in shock. >> reporter: an older couple has lived in the home since the early '80s, but they've seen children in the home as well. >> i've seen a grandson passing, but that would be about it. >> there's always trouble when you're dealing with cheverly. now to the developing situation in iraq. the u.s. has launched a new round of airstrikes against isis militants. the president says these strikes are aimed at isis fighters to keep them from capturing the hadith dam. it could cause catastrophic
flooding and threaten thousands of iraqis. in cairo today, the arab league issued a call to arms, promising to work with leaders and confront isis. could obama enter a true international coalition? on an exclusive interview on "meet the press" today, chuck todd asked about his comment about isis, calling it a, quote, jv team. >> keep in mind, i wasn't specifically referring to isil. i have said that regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally. weren't focused on the homeland, because i think a lot of us, when we think about terrorism, the motto is osama bin laden and 9/11. >> you don't believe these people -- >> not yet. but they can evolve. >> president obama told chuck he's meeting with congressional leaders at the white house

believe it or not, another nba owner is embroiled in a racially charged controversy. bruce levinson is the co-owner of the atlanta hawks and he's selling his share of the team. levinson sent an offensive e-mail to his partners and general manager. he wrote the e-mail back in 2012, asking how to attract more white fans. he says, increasingly black crowds are scaring white fans. southern whites are not comfortable in at reasonthe are. he voluntarily reported this to the nba last night and told them it's in his best interest to sell his interest in the franchi franchise. this comes after donald sterling was forced to sell his team. he was banned from the nba after a recording came out of some racial comments he made to his girlfriend. every year at this time, people lace up their sneakers for the out of darkness walk.
it was em seed here in fairfax county today. it's part of the changing minds campaign. we want to raise awareness about suicide prevention and end the stigma associated with it. this walk also raises money for research that will give us more insight into the genetic factors that could lead to suicide. the walk was sponsored by the american foundation for suicide prevention. you can learn more about suicide prevention on the changing minds web page on our website. the great thing about that was they just had fantastic weather today to be out for a walk. >> it was beautiful today, and we talked about that yesterday. the humidity would be low, there would be sunshine during the afternoon. temperatures a huge improvement from saturday. now, as we look to the beginning of the work week, you want to keep your umbrella handy. showers are in the forecast tomorrow and tuesday, mainly later in the day tomorrow, and tuesday you could be dealing with a shower, really, at any time. as we look to the rest of the work week, keeping it dry on wednesday but tracking some storms later in the day on
thursday. this week as far as the heat is concerned, some good news. we're not looking at any 90s. in fact, temperatures for the most part will be fairly comfortable this week, especially when we compare it to last week. right now temperatures are in the 70s and 80s across the area, washington coming in at 82. radar in our region is dry, but this area of low pressure down around florida and georgia will move up the coast and bring moisture with it, potentially, mainly later in date on monday and then tuesday as well. especially for areas south and east of the district. here we are, 6:00 a.m. tomorrow. for the most part it's a dry morning commute but plenty of clouds already around. getting into the midday hours, notice these scattered showers around noon, and during the afternoon we continue to track some scattered hours, about a 40 to 50% chance that you're dealing with some rain tomorrow. even at 10:00, maybe a few light showers across the area. we're not talking about any thunderstorms, though, in the forecast. so it's a cool start, temperatures in the mid-60s.
low 70s by 11:00 a.m. a high tomorrow only 78 degrees and a little bit breezy at times as well. on tuesday, a high temperature of 77 degrees. little bit better chance that you're dealing with rain on tuesday. notice futureweather throughout the day keeping a lot of moisture around, especially around washington and then areas off to the east and south. as we look to the afternoon and evening hours, continue to track the chance of showers. remember, though, no thunderstorms. crisp thursday. later in the day some thunderstorms are likely, potentially bringing some heavy rain. it's also the hottest day of the week. a high temperature of 87. right now it's looking like that rain clears the area, bringing us nice weather for friday, saturday and next sunday. saturday and next sunday. still ahead,
no chores? you were lazy, just like me? just like everybody? the first nfl weekend is always exciting for fans, because whit the new season comes a new season of hope. the redskins had that going into houston, they just didn't make any big plays, or simple plays, for that matter. offensive special teams was a different story. robert griff in iii would see a lot of j.j. watt, and that was not a good thing. still a problem for the skins, andre roberts returns this punt gets tackled by durrell young. not good to get tackled by your own teammate. second quarter skins get a spark, though, from running back alfred morse. a 21-yard game here down to the 1. morse had 90 yards rushing on 14 carries, young would punch it in for a touchdown. the extra point was blocked by j.j. watt right afterwards.
the skins tie this game up at two apiece. patrick with plenty of time. finds deion wide open. he makes him miss, a lot especially last year. houston is up. the redskins, next drive. they go 3 and out. he gets blocked by the rookie alfred blue for a touchdown. texans are up 14-6 at this point. they take that lead into half time. third quarter, the skins start with the ball. they drive down the field but griffin can't get his hand off alfred moore, tripped over one of the defensive lineman's feet. here we go, next down for the houston texans.
fourth quarter, griffin gets sacked by watt. watt worth every penny of that $100 million extension he got. jay gruden loses in debut. with more from houston, here's diane rocini. >> reporter: jason, the first nfl game of the season is difficult for any team, so many unknowns. but this team only put up six points today. they couldn't get their passing game going, and turnovers cost them the game. >> it's inexcusable to have turnovers in the end zone. we have one guy that's free and an unnecessary handoff that you work on of day in practice. we just have to move on. >> it's a constant practice to hammer in the details and fix what you need to fix and do it next week.
we'll fix what we need to fix today, and it starts with me, and i'll make sure that happens. >> we played not so great and there's a lot to be learned. we're going to watch the film and get better. >> i think it would be better to be at home. this place was crazy. they were really loud, so i thought next week i'll give them an opportunity to slow down and we'll make plays in our stadium. >> reed who went down during the game will have an mri on his elbow tomorrow. let's go to the baseball diamond now. who doesn't love. bottom of the fourth, they're down to one. adam larothe changed his solo shot. we're tied at 2 now.
bottom of the 6th after he and desmond. since this pitch to left. that's when your. one more score for you in the nfl, the ravens fell to the bengals ñr23-16. football is not over yet. we're going to take you to a live shot of denver where the broncos and the colts are getting prepared to take each other on.
