The key that unlocks playoff berths in the NFL is for a team to win on their home turf.
It’s no secret that it’s harder to win games on the road, but somehow in 2010, the Redskins won twice as many road games (four) as home games (two).
In only two opportunities in 2011, the Redskins have already matched their home-wins mark from a season ago, and quarterback Rex Grossman feels good about where the team stands.
“Being 2-0 feels good, and we feel like we’re headed in the right direction,” he said after the game. “Those are the types of situations that build momentum and confidence as a team.”
For the second consecutive week, the team has trailed by at least a touchdown, but there’s a certain unflappable quality to the team so far.
“Nervous? I dunno about nervous,” he said about the deficit. “You are only concentrating on just finishing drives. We didn’t capitalize on some of our drives, but we did when it counted.”
And when the clock struck zero, the Burgundy and Gold had the advantage.
