open. >> yes, the next play. >> he is thinking what is going on here. this might have been one of the worst coaching jobs ever by denver. they ran this play the play before and then they ran it again. wide open. great throw. he use tiebd high school quarterback. >> he showed off that arm. -- he used to be a high school quarter lack. >> finally. >> that is what we've been saying all year long with guys like devon thomas, malcolm kelly and fred davis. they all played we had yesterday. >> get hungry and step up. >> how about lidell betts yesterday, 114 yards. it is a happy day for the washington redskins. they go on to win 27-17. steve, 27 points. >> that is the whole season's worth of scoring. >> they hadn't scored more than 17 all year long. finally, they get over that magical hump i guess to get over that number and they get a
win and a happy locker room for jason campbell and jim dorn. let's take a listen. >> to be able to come out with a win, you almost don't know how to feel. yet, we remember very quickly and we sure like winning. it was exciting for our football team, for our franchise, for our fans. >> definitely feels better because you beat a good trouble people, not a team that is not up there in the rankings, high in the ranking. we beat a good football team and that was encouraging to us. >> you could just hear how excited jim zorn was. >> was that relief or elation. seemed like a lot of relief. >> it is good either way. good for lidell bets. a couple of years ago when clinton got hurt, he came n. >> how about andre carter, another game where he has one and a half sacks. having albert haynesworth in the front four is making a huge difference. can you not single block these guys on the outside. when you get that type of production and we've talked about in in other games, when
you can rausch the quarterback as they did effectively yesterday, you can get wins. now, all of a sudden, and we don't want to goiesy, we don't want to tell tony to get playoff tickets or anything like that. they are 3-6. you look at the rest of the nfc. the dallas cowboys lost at green bay. the philadelphia eagles lose in san diego. the new york giants have lost four straight game it is not impossible. it is not out of the realm of possibility if the redskins take it one game at a time as the players -- and i'm the first one to say. >> i'm he going to give it another week. >> i am the first guy to say they were crazy. they kept saying everything is still out there. we can still reach the playos. i thought, are they insane? they believe it. that is all that really matters. if they can go out and get a win, it is dallas week inform they can somehow get a week down in big d next week, i say
anything is possible. maybe that 2012 mayan prediction comes true. >> when you look at it and you look at the bad teams out there p, the redskin are much more taal ended than -- >> they are. they've been saying that. the players have been telling us, we have talent on this team. well, let's see t they actually showed it yesterday again. when you get the young big three making plays, all of a sudden, it opens things up for the other guys. this team, 27 points against a very good defense in the denver broncos. i say con fwrat lags to the redskins d tony perkins. >> straight ahead at 6:00, a new place for metro passengers to park. we'll explain what that is all about. you can still land some thanksgiving travel deals but you have to act soon. we'll check your monday morning commute and forecast.
