09/27/2020 6:54pm

Broncos fill stadium with South Park cutouts originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonWith some NFL stadiums not having fans in attendance or limited capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic, teams have gotten clever with how they fill the seats.Cutouts have become a popular option, and while some teams like the Ravens are having cardboard celebrities sit front row, the Denver Broncos have decided to pay homage to a popular television cartoon that is based in the area.For their Week 3 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Broncos are placing cardboard cutouts of South Park characters.Happy gameday, friendly neighborsSouthPark ComedyCentral pic.twitter.com/06JepLZnI3 Denver Broncos Broncos September 27, 2020Gangs all here. SouthPark ComedyCentral pic.twitter.com/3OLVXQSK12 Denver Broncos Broncos September 27, 2020The wildly popular adult cartoon show is based out of the fictional town of South Park, Colorado. The adventures of Cartman, Kyle, Kenny and Stan have constantly featured little moments in which the Denver Broncos are included in the shtick. Now, it appears the local football team is returning the favor.The show has also been known to troll Tom Brady from time-to-time, so they picked the perfect Sunday to unveil their new plan.Like the South Park theme song says, there will not be friendly faces everywhere for the Week 3 matchup.The 2020 NFL season has forced teams to get innovativewhen it comes to creating an environment on gameday. Though it may not feature Randy Marsh screaming at opposing fans, adding in South Park to the new set of fans in the stands is a perfect idea.As Cartman says, Sweeeet.

09/27/2020 6:16pm

This Garrett sack of Haskins happened because of an undershirt originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonWhen it comes to sacking quarterbacks, Myles Garrett doesnt need any extra assistance. He got some on Sunday against Washington, though.On a third-and-5 in Cleveland in Week 3, Dwayne Haskins tried to climb the pocket in order to get away from the always-productive pass rusher. It looked like Haskins was going to escape, too.But thats when Garrett latched on to Haskins long undershirt, then stayed latched on, until he was able to force the QB down to the grass.Heres the odd second-quarter sequence in its entirety:Myles Garrett was getting this sack by any means necessary via Browns pic.twitter.com/jLMD8bxlT4 ESPN espn September 27, 2020And heres a screengrab of the shirt at its stretchiest:Myles Garrett REFUSING to let Dwayne Haskins get away on this play pic.twitter.com/pzIebU6PxC FOX Sports: NFL NFLonFOX September 27, 2020Washington running back Antonio Gibson was tackled in the exact samemanner in the 2020 opener, and afterward, he vowed to never rock a long undershirt again.If Haskins makes a similar statement this week, everyone will know what play inspired it.

Jordan Reed, 49ers Suffer Another Injury Scare at MetLife Stadium
09/27/2020 6:13pm

Jordan Reed, 49ers suffer another injury scare at MetLife Stadium originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonFormer Washington Football Team and current San Francisco 49ers tight end Jordan Reed suffered what looked to be a serious ankle injury during the teams Week 3 matchup with the New York Giants, but later returned to the contest.Reed remained on the ground grabbing his ankle after nearly hauling in a touchdown pass.Heres the Jordan Reed injury.pic.twitter.com/wOdVNHhPI2 Dov Kleiman NFLDovKleiman September 27, 2020The injury scare is nothing new for the 49ers or Reed. Just last week while playing the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium, San Francisco saw stars such as Nick Bosa, Solomon Thomas, Raheem Mostert and JimmyGaroppolo leave the game with injuries. Thomas and Bosa are both out for the season with torn ACLs.Ahead of the Week 3 matchup back at MetLife, head coach Kyle Shannahan and the team expressed concern about the turf at the stadium and how it may have contributed to a large number of injuries.As for Reed, the talented tight end has been ailed by injuries throughout his career. Though he showed his ability to be a dominant pass-catcher during his time in Washington, Reed was never able to reach his full potential due to the time he spent of the sideline.Most notably, concussion problems limited Reed in Washington, as he is coming off a 2019 season in which he did not play a single regular-season game after suffering a concussion in the preseason.Download &subscribe to the Washington Football Talk PodcastReed, however, showed signs of a resurgence in Week 2 of the 2020 season, catching two touchdown passes for the 49ers. With George Kittle hampered by an injury of his own, Reed has an opportunity to once again show the league just how good he is.Though there was a scare on Sunday, it appears hell continue to be a main target for whoever is under center for San Francisco.

Washington Vs. Cleveland: Haskins' Interceptions, Young's Injury Underscore First Half
09/27/2020 6:13pm

Washington vs. Cleveland: Haskins 2 INTs, Young injured in first half originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonIn a battle of 1-1 clubs, the Washington Football Team enters halftimetrailing the Cleveland Browns, 17-7.Here are some observations from the first half1. For the first time all season, Washingtons defense forced a punt on the opponents opening drive.Although the 2020 NFL season is just entering the toddler stage, much of Washingtons campaign thus far has been defined by the teams slow starts. In Weeks 1 and 2, both the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals found the end zone on their opening drives, putting Washington in an early hole.That wasnt the case in Week 3, as Washington halted the Cleveland attack, only allowing one first down before forcing a punt.2. New faces were involved early on offense for Washington.Outside of Terry McLaurin, Washington had found trouble finding production from any of its other wideouts thus far in 2020. So, the Burgundy and Gold made it a point to get the ball into some of its other offensive weapons early on in Sundays contest.On Washingtons opening drive, undrafted rookie receiver Isaiah Wright hauled in his first career catch. Wright was targeted four times in the first half, hauling in three catches for 18yards.Later in the first quarter, rookie fourth-rounder Antonio Gandy-Golden was handed the ball on a jet sweep, and the Liberty product took the ball down the left sideline 21 yards before getting popped by Browns safety Karl Joseph.Antonio Gandy Golden with the nice carry on the jet sweep. Took a big hit by Karl Joseph, but bounced back up. pic.twitter.com/yNR1w2bZie Mark Bullock MarkBullockNFL September 27, 2020Washington is going to need more production from its supporting cast if they want to be competitive in 2020. So far, so good in Week 3.3. Dontrelle Inman scores his first touchdown since 2018.Speaking of needing other contributors on offense, Washington found the end zone for the first time Sunday afternoon courtesy of Dontrelle Inman. The touchdown was Inmans first as a member of the Burgundy and Gold.Quarterback Dwayne Haskins fired a perfect missile to Inman in between two defenders from 17 yards out, giving Washington its first first-half lead of the season.

Browns cornerback Denzel Ward was in the perfect position to intercept the pass, but Wright played the football as if he were a defensive back and broke up the pass.Perfect form tackle from WR Isaiah Wright. Wait, WRYes.WashingtonFootball pic.twitter.com/nByraPIi3x Chad Ryan ChadwikoRCC September 27, 20204. Bad news on the injury front.Two of Washingtons most important defenders Matt Ioannidis and second overall pick Chase Young have been ruled out with arm and groin injuries, respectively.Heres the injury to Chase Young.pic.twitter.com/nDnicQ9PEX Dov Kleiman NFLDovKleiman September 27, 2020With both Ioannidis and Young sidelined, expect Tim Settle and Ryan Kerrigan to see more snaps in the second half.5. Haskins first interception of the season was a bad one.With a 7-3 lead inthe second quarter, Washingtons offense was on the move once again.However, all momentum was lost when Haskins overthrew tight end Logan Thomas down the middle. Karl Joseph was in the right place at the right time to intercept the pass, and the safety returned the pick 49 yards all the way to the Washington 35 yard line.Karl Joseph with the takeawayaaaand s/o to TavierreT on the recovery : NFLonFOX pic.twitter.com/YelajxXR9B Cleveland Browns Browns September 27, 20206. Nick Chubb is very, very good.Chubb, the NFLs second-leading rusher one year ago, found the end zone following Haskins first interception on a beautiful 16-yard run.Good luck trying to tackle NickChubb21 : NFLonFOX pic.twitter.com/YhXKQRkUQy Cleveland Browns Browns September 27, 2020Washington had done a good job keeping Chubbs impact to a minimum prior to his touchdown run. Not so much, anymore. On the day, Chubb has 53 yards on 12 carries.7. Haskins second interception came at an even worse time than the first.On third-and-7 from Washingtons own 19-yard line, Haskins was caught starring Inman down on a crossing route. Browns linebacker Malcolm Smith jumped right in front of the pass, giving the Browns one last chance to extend their lead before the half.Hellllllooooo Malcolm Smith: NFLonFOX pic.twitter.com/mOEQADoAPy Cleveland Browns Browns September 27, 2020Three plays later, Browns QB Baker Mayfield would find running back Kareem Hunt from nine yards out for the touchdown.Cleveland would enter the halftime break with a 10-point lead, scoring 17 unanswered points.

Dwayne Haskins' First Interception of 2020 Shows One of His Biggest Flaws
09/27/2020 6:04pm

Dwayne Haskins first INT of 2020 shows one of his biggest flaws originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonDwayne Haskins wasnt picked off in either of his first two games of the 2020 season. The QB finally threw his first interception of the year against the Browns on Sunday, though, and the mistake illustrated one of his most glaring flaws.In the second quarter, Haskins tried to connect with Logan Thomas deep over the middle of the field. Unfortunately, the 23-year-old sailed the ball, which allowed Browns safety Karl Joseph to snag it instead of Thomas:Haskins overthrows Thomas on the 4 verts concept, straight into the arms of the FS. Credit to Morgan Moses for working hard after the INT to knock the ball out, but Gibson couldnt fall on it to recover it. pic.twitter.com/8cxymsrOOH Mark Bullock MarkBullockNFL September 27, 2020That sort of miss from Haskins high and hot is one thats plagued him since he joined the Washington Football Team. It was at the root of multiple turnovers during his rookie campaign and was obviously the cause of his error in Cleveland.As the franchise tries to figure out whether Haskins is their long-term answer, theyll need to see him be more accurate. In other words, theyll need to see fewer poor attempts like the one above.
