Wash Times - Redskins Win Another Thriller
Just one time, Clinton Portis said after another stress-inducing, make-you-old-quick Washington Redskins victory, he would like to relax in the final minutes and enjoy the fruits of his labor as the clock winds down.
"I'm tired of these emotional, close games," he said. "I'm ready for a blowout win."
Sorry, Clinton, but this is the NFL and there isn't a Florida Atlantic or a Sam Houston State on the Redskins' schedule. And these are the Redskins, who will never be accused of doing anything the easy way.
Exhibit C was yesterday's 20-17 overtime win against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Redskins squandered an 11-point, third-quarter lead, and then a Mark Brunell interception with 49 seconds left in regulation put Seattle in position to do what Washington did two weeks ago in Dallas -- steal a road win. But Josh Brown's 47-yard field goal attempt ricocheted off the left upright.
