6:24 pm
he finds this guy, desean jackson and the redskins missing them all season and 42 yards and two catches, but this kind of set the tone. later in the drive, another third down for the redskins and another conversion and this time jordan reed and he wants more, reaches over the pylon and great play by reed to make sure it's a toughdown and a 96-yard drive and the longest in 15 years by the redskins. second quarter, the skins up 14-7 and drew brees answered in a big way. brees is pretty good and steps up going deep and deep for brandon cook and the 60-yard touchdown catch and two on the day and it's a tie game. we're tied at 14. later in the quarter, though, the redskins respond and cousins off the play action hits matt jones on the screen and look, the skins' offensive line and stealing the block. >> yeah, i think he is and running back, nothing, but end zone and 78-yard touchdown reception for jones and since

6:26 pm
it done today putting forth their best game of the season so far. >> we showed glimpses of what we can do and we played a complete game today and we made the most of the opportunity we got and we put up 27 points today and it's been a while since we've done that. >> it takes hard work and focus each woke to eek to go out and today. >> they struggled against two or a three-yard game and this year it was 67. it was very dominant today and they finished with blocks and everything. >> it was 3 and 6, you know, the last couple of years and it feels great to, you know, get over that hump and we have a long way to go and we have a tough schedule ahead of us and i mean, this is only the tip of the iceberg. >> now you heard trent williams there mentioned being three and six in years past and this year
6:27 pm
had been three and six the last four seasons and today they avoided the dreaded 3 and 6 mark to 4 and 6 this year. from fedex field, i'm jason pugh. good stuff, jason and it put the redskins very much in the mix. elsewhere in the nfc east, 6 and 3 with the 6-3 dallas lead in the fourth, but the bucs driving jameis winston on the bootleg and that's a touchdown and the bucs take the lead and 10-6 over dallas and the win. cowboys have lost serve in a row. let's stay in the division. we'll go to philadelphia and eagles hosting the miami dolphins and eagles leading by three and miami in the red zone and it is up in the air and landry does, and it is a 20-16 fwoel and to win it 20-19 so philadelphia drops to four and five in the crowded nfc east. up in baltimore, joe flacco and the ravens welcoming the jaguars
6:28 pm
to charm city and the ravens down five and flacco drops flat and the two-point conversion and the ravens up one and he drives down the field and he's from 53 yards out and that is good and they beat the ravens with the seventh loss of the season for the ravens and not a good day for them and a good day for the redskins. >> thank you so much and that is the news forw "nightly news is coming up next" and we'll see you test test test
