December 3-- Falcons erase 14-nothing deficit, win 24-14, send Skins to 4-8

The Redskins can finish no better then 8-8 after falling to 4-8 losing at home to Atlanta 24-14.. Washington blew a 14-nothing lead.. After scoring on their first two drives, the Skins were held without a point or the rest of the contest.. Ladell Betts had a career high 155 yards rushing and the team amassed over 170 on the ground, but the Falcons, who entered with the league’s best rush offense ran it for 256.. Rookie Jerious Norwood broke it open with a 69 yard touchdown run early in the 4th quarter..

Jason Campbell had his first rough day as a quarterback making a poor interception trying to get away from a sack in the third by just tossing it into the hands of a defensive lineman.. That turnover led to a 3rd quarter Falcons score and their first lead.. Campbell was intercepted a second time and should have had a third pick if DeAngelo Hall didn’t drop one.. Al saunders said he remains very confident in the play of Campbell..

The Redskins also were discombobulated late in the game where they had two drives needing ten points.. One time Campbell was trying to make line calls, when his directions were not being adhered to, he called for a huddle.. On the last drive, the team botched a goal to go attempt from inside the five yard line, spiking the ball on first down, running on a 3rd and two, and then throwing an incompletion to effectively end the game..

WR Brandon Lloyd received a 15 yard penalty for throwing his helmet while walking off the field on the second to last drive.. He did not return to the game and Joe Gibbs said he and Lloyd would talk about the play.. Lloyd said he was “just frustrated and that it wasn’t a sign of him being an individual.” On the previous drive he and Antwaan Randle El got into what appeared to be an argument on the sideline.. Randle El had to be restrained by teammates.. Mark Brunell came over to a steaming Lloyd who was standing by himself at the end of the sideline and lightened him up.. Lloyd and Randle El appeared to have had some words in a previous game this season but when asked about it, Lloyd said they weren’t arguing, but just “pumping each other up.”

Injuries: C Casey Rabach (shoulder), DT Joe Salavea (sprained right knee), DT Cornelious Griffin (shoulder), CB Kenny Wright (sprained knee), TE Todd Yoder (bruised quad) all returned to the game after suffering injuries and all will be re-evaluated on Monday..

CB Shawn Springs was not active after his hamstring felt sore during a morning workout.. Springs missed Thursdays practice but returned on Friday after suffering the injury initially on Wednesday.. He was listed as probable coming into the game..

WR David Patten was inactive, he was upgraded to probable on Thursday with a hamstring..

S Troy Vincent missed his second straight game with a hamstring injury..

The team released DT Ryan Boschetti to make room for K Shaun Suisham who was utilized on kickoffs and all field goals and extra points.. Nick Novak remained on the roster for the game and Joe Gibbs said no decision has been made yet on the future of the position.. Suisham’s kickoffs all landed inside the five yard line and his one field goal attempt, from 50 yards was wide left..

Bram, I enjoy listening to your shows on Monday and Friday. The Redskins made a mistake in trading for Brandon L. But 730 made an even bigger mistake in having him as a co-host on your radio show. He is not a PR person. He is very arrogant. More than once have you been caught flat footed this year trying to give him an escape out of a statement he has made this year, only to find he is too ignorant or arrogant to realize the situation. I should have sent you this message 2 months ago, but the helmet incident was the final event. As a team player, his responce on the 15 yarder, was to, "just deal with it", why is he on our team? Is he a core player? A player w/character? While so many, we have let go, and could have paid less than the money we gave to Brandon Lloyd. A Mr. Pierce comes to mind. Chris
