Redskins escape with win

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 The Redskins are cornering the market on late-game mood swings after their 14-point, fourth-quarter comeback win over Dallas two weeks ago. This time, they blew a late lead and tempted fate by committing a turnover that gave Brown his 47-yard attempt. He was so sure it was good he raised his hands in victory before it clanked off the goal post. Novak ran toward the bench and pumped his fist after his kick 5:31 into overtime. The rookie from Maryland was playing his second NFL game after not attempting a field goal against the Cowboys. His first try Sunday was blocked in the first quarter, and he had to kick the winner twice because the Redskins were called for delay of game. “It’s tough to think about the magnitude of what just happened,” said Novak, who also made a 40-yarder in the third quarter. “All I know is we’re 3-0.” Novak, playing because of an injury to John Hall, has impressed teammates with his calm demeanor. He was overcome with emotion only once during his post-game interviews, when he dedicated the kick to a friend. “I have a neighbor back home that has cancer and is expected to pass away,” he said. “That kick was for her.” The fates are shining on the Redskins, who are 3-0 for the first time since 1991 with victories by two points, one point and three points. They won with Nick Novak, who had not attempted an NFL field goal until Sunday, yet had the cool to nail a 39-yard winner in overtime for a 20-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. “The emotions are just going crazy around here,” linebacker Marcus Washington said. “We get into those ugly, Rocky Balboa-type fights. We just keep banging, scratching and find a way to just pull this thing out. It’s not always pretty, but a win is a win.” LANDOVER, Md. — The Washington Redskins were inches from defeat when Josh Brown’s “perfect” kick somehow hit the left upright on the last play of regulation. “Honestly, the kick was perfect,” Brown said. “I hit a great ball and unfortunately the upright got right in the way.” center_img The Seahawks (2-2) were as emotionally exhausted as the Redskins. They had tied the game on Darrell Jackson’s 6-yard catch with 1:23 remaining. Then came Kelly Herndon’s interception on a pass deflected off the fingertips of Clinton Portis, the only turnover of the game. Three plays later, Brown hit the upright. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
