Game Report: Redskins 25, Lions 17
What went wrong: The Redskins again dominated the stats, but the scoring production failed to match the yardage totals. This is an issue that has plagued them the past three games. They also committed six first-half penalties, which caused drives to stumble. The Redskins capped a terrific opening drive with a short field goal after they failed to execute on early downs. The defense could not pressure a quarterback who had been sacked nine times in the previous two games.
Key sequence: The Redskins trailed 10-9 late in the third quarter when they faced a first and 10 at midfield. Moss, lining up in the slot, turned the corner inside by faking a post route then turned to the outside to grab a pass and turn it into a 50-yard touchdown. The Redskins never trailed again.
Stars of the game: Moss had a combined 220 yards, with 80 coming on his fourth-quarter punt return. Campbell was 23 of 28 for 328 yards passing. Clinton Portis rushed for 126 yards, his fifth straight game with more than 120 yards. It's the second time he's done that in his career, matching only O.J. Simpson as players to accomplish this feat. Chris Cooley had six catches for 74 yards.
