San Diego vs. Washington: Takeaways from Redskins' 30-24 Win over Chargers

The Washington Redskins may have rescued their season by surviving a tense overtime tilt with the San Diego Chargers. Washington scored on the opening drive in sudden death to take the game 30-24.

The key takeaways from this Week 9 win were strong performances from wide receivers that helped quarterback Robert Griffin III overcome a somewhat erratic effort.

There was also the greater emphasis placed on the running game. The offense ran the ball 40 times in total, with workhorse Alfred Morris being particularly productive.

Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and his troops kept the Chargers off-balance just enough, and they made some smart calls on third down.

These three points highlight the list of takeaways for the 3-5 Redskins.
