This is about the never ending search for the best beer in the world. And that beer is apparently everywhere. Want me to try the beer you like or make? Great, tell me how to get it.

December 24- Redskins 35 Giants 20

The Redskins scored 35 points in consecutive weeks for the first time since the first two weeks of the 1999 season when they lost to Dallas 41-35 in OT then won at NYG 50-21..
They only scored over 30 points once last season, the second meeting with NYG at Fed Ex Field.. They only went over 30 once the year priro as well.. This was the fourth 30+ point game of the season for Washington..

QB Mark Brunnell left in the second half after spraining the MCL in his right knee.. He will likely undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity, a complete tear will likely shelve him for a month, if the tearing of the ligament is minor then he could play against Philly..

LB Chris Clemons sprained the MCL in his knee as well, trainers called this moderate and likely worse then what Brunnell has..

Patrick Ramsey played for the first time since the last NYG game.. he ended up going 5-7 for 104 yards including a 72 yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss.. Moss had three touchdowns catching 5 passes for 160 yards.. It was Moss's first 100+ yard game since the SF game and his 5th of the season..

Chris Cooley had 5 catches for 41 yards.. He has 69 grabs for the seaosn, the most ever for a Redskins TE/H-back..

Clinton Portis broke a team record with his 8th 100 plus yard game of the season.. This was also his 5th in a row.. Portis had 108 yards on 27 carries including a 19 yard touchdown run, his second longest of the season..
Portis also threw a touchdown pass, a 20 yarder to Cooley.. he joked afterward that he goes to the QB camps and routinely is more accurate then Joe Montana, Steve Young and Michael Vick..

Tiki Barber only had 16 carries and was held to 80 yards.. Barber had 206 in the first meeting with Washington.. That ended a five game 100 plus yard streak for Tiki..

The Redskins playoff scenario is as such, Washington would win the NFC East if they win at Philadelphia next Sunday and the NYG lose in Oakland.. If Washington wins, they are in at the very least as a wild card.. Atlanta's loss in Carolina eliminates them from playoff contention.. If Minnesota is to lose either of their last two, they would be out as well.. Dallas won in Carolina and own the same 9-6 record as Washington.. If they win next week and Washington loses, the Cowboys would get the wild card over Washington.. Depending on what the Bears, Panthers and Bucs do, there remains a slim possibility of Washington getting the second seed and a bye.. Chicago would have to lose out, so would Tampa, Carolina and NYG..

Happy Holidays
