Horizontal running plays not working for Washington. They need to just scrap that. Ninkovich ate that up.
Branch did a great job getting into the backfield. Ninkovich destroyed that side of the line.
Another drop for the Redskins. Took his eyes off the ball well before it arrived. Was waiting to get crunched by Ninkovich.
