K. Shanahan: 'Moved on' from Skins dysfunction

As his 49ers ready to play the Redskins on Sunday, coach Kyle Shanahan, reflecting on his time in Washington, said his favorite part was "being able to work with my dad and be around some other good coaches." As for the worst part? "Everything else."

Goodell: No talk of draft lottery to fight tanking

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league is enjoying peak competitiveness, despite five teams winning one game or fewer through the first six weeks of the season.

Redskins safety Landon Collins was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his role in Washington's 17-16 win over Miami on Sunday. Collins, who has earned this honor four times in his career, finished with 10 solo tackles (12 total), a sack, a forced fumble and two passes defensed. Collins is the first Redskins' defensive player to be named player of the week since linebacker Keenan Robinson in 2014. Washington signed Collins to a six-year deal worth up to $84 million in March.

Redskins defensive end Jonathan Allen, who had two sacks, said, "When you win you're excited, when you lose you're not. It doesn't matter how you get it done in the NFL. There's no highs and lows. That's what you guys don't understand. I'm not jumping for joy. We won. We were supposed to win."

MIAMI— Receiver Terry McLaurin continues to stand out as a rookie in part because of his route running. It was evident on his touchdown when he sold a crossing route with a head bob. And it was obvious on his 33-yard catch late in the game. McLaurin was proud of that catch because of what it represented.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

MIAMI -- Biggest takeaway: Beating winless Miami by one point won't lead to a Redskins turnaround, though it's hard to imagine the feeling had the Dolphins converted the two-point conversion. The Redskins need better play from quarterback Case Keenum; they need the defense to provide a consistent pass rush -- not just against a second-year QB who holds the ball too long (Josh Rosen). They helped themselves with the run game; a good start. But there's a lot of work left to do. They know it.

Redskins interim coach Bill Callahan said after the teams first win that "our guys were resilient and it showed. Our practices and how we practiced transferred to the game."

The Redskins never make it easy -- even when holding two touchdown leads vs. winless teams. But they escaped with a 17-16 win over Miami thanks to a failed two-point conversion by the Dolphins. It wasn't pretty. But the Redskins did rush for 145 yards to give interim coach Bill Callahan a win in his first game. Rookie receiver Terry McLaurin was a big factor again with four catches for 100 yards and two touchdowns. The defense started strong with a lot of pressure but finished poorly.

Terry McLaurin entered Sunday's game with five catches of 20 or more yards; he has two such receptions vs. Miami -- both for touchdowns. McLaurin continues to be the main bright spot for Washington this season. On his second touchdown, the Redskins helped clear a spot for McLaurin by running Trey Quinn down the right seam to hold the safety and having Chris Thompson split wide left -- and not moving - to hold the corner long enough to free McLaurin.

The Redskins used two- or three- tight end sets on nine of 25 first-half snaps. That represents a change from the first five weeks. In that time, they used a two- or three- tight end look on 39 of 307 snaps.

The Redskins have a halftime lead for the second time this season, with a 7-3 edge over Miami. The Redskins' offense, aside from one drive, has been bad. Of their 88 yards rushing, 68 occurred on their touchdown drive and 93 of their 134 total yards came on that series. But the defense has been good, holding Miami to 104 total yards and recording four sacks. Their pressure has resulted in other hurried and off-target throws by quarterback Josh Rosen.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Terry McLaurin does a really good job of selling routes, which has helped him create separation against every defensive back he's seen this year. On his 25-yard touchdown catch, McLaurin broke inside and turned his head back enough to convince the defender that was his path. But he turned back to the outside with plenty of space for an easy touchdown catch. It starts with him fooling the defender.

Redskins running back Adrian Peterson entered Sunday's game with one run longer than nine yards this season -- and it was a 10-yarder in Week 2. Against Miami, he had rushes of 18 and 25 yards on Washington's first scoring drive. Peterson has talked often about getting into a better rhythm with more carries. He already has eight carries; his previous high this year was 12. But it helps that Washington's defense has held Miami scoreless allowing it to stay committed to the run.

Miami-Washington winless bowl is getting off to an on-brand start. After one quarter, the teams have combined for 46 yards on 28 plays. 6 punts. No points.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins' offense continues to lack any sort of rhythm and a lot of that can be traced to the ineffective run game. Running back Adrian Peterson has gained four yards on his first three runs so the Redskins can't develop good down-and-distance situations. Quarterback Case Keenum has been pressured and has hurried some throws because of it, including a third-down pass to Trey Quinn who was open.
