thanks for staying up. i'm scott smith. a live report from st. louis as the nats win game one in spectacular fashion. first, we start closer to home, and perhaps a little too close for comfort. september18, 2011, that was the last time the skins won at fed ex field. rg3, coming off his best performance as a pro last week in tampa. the falcons trying to send a message early to the young gun. on the blitz, crushed. robinson delivers the blow. griffin shakes it off, gets back up.
then watch as his defense do some work. ryan kerrigan, 6'4" and has hops, too. takes it the other way. no offense to speak of, but a 7- 0 redskins lead in the 2nd. skins attacking early. 86 of his 115 yards came in the first half. 29 of it there. cundiff staring down a 31-yard like last week. he'd miss. one of last five. not good stats. all the momentum swings to the falcons. before the half, tied at 7 at the half. rg3 and the offense threatening in the second half. this is the play that made everyone stop. rolling to his right, looks for yards, leveled by shawn
witherspoon. shanahan calls it a mild concussion. that was the end of griffin's day. 11 of 17, 95 yards. in comes kirk cousins. the skins' 0 for 7 on 3rd downs before this one. slips behind the secondary, 77 yards to the house. skins take a 17-14 lead. and they're in business. cousins 111 yards on the day, 77 right there. the falcons wear down that skins' defense. michael turner chewing up the clock and yards. last chance for cousins. does he has a griffin type comeback in him? picked off. 24-17 the final. two and three on the season. the focus after the game? the health of rg3. >> wasn't sure what quarter it was. was the 3rd quarter.
when he wasn't sure what quarter it was, what the score was, we knew he had a mild concussion. at least according to the doctors. feels better now. but that was the situation, why he didn't go back into the game. >> was able to talk to him, letting him know, we're praying for you, concerned about your well-being. obviously down in spirits, because a guy like that wants to be out there fighting for his team. hopefully he can recover. four guys have postseason experience on the national's roster. but davey johnson has said all along they have what it takes to make it all the way. st. louis, nats up 1-0. gonzalez fires a wild pitch. scores from third, game tied at
1. nats did trouble in the 7th. bases loaded. ending inning double play. nats escape, down one. 8th inning, the rookie, tyler moore to pinch hit. two on. will find real estate in right. michael morse on his horse. desmond around for the go ahead score. nats take game 13-2 the final. a huge road win. at the very least, the nats come back home 1-1 in the series. and unsuspecting hero in game one. listened listen was there to catch all the action and joins us with reaction from a happy nats' club house. >> reporter: game one officially in the books. the nationals got the best of the reigning world series champions, the cardinals. 79 years and
