The one thing the Washington Redskins can do, and do very well, better than any team in the National Football League, is run the football. Through week seven, the Redskins have amassed 1,244 yards on the ground, the most by any Redskins teams since 1945. They are the first team to rush for 125 yards or more through the first seven weeks since 1992 (49ers). The SF 49ers are second to the Redskins this season with 1,236 yards.
The Redskins scampered for 248 yards on the ground today against the Giants. RB Alfred Morris led the ground game with 122 yards on 22 carrier. Robert Griffin III added 89 yards on 9 carries. Morris now has 658 yards rushing through seven weeks and RGIII has amassed 468 yards.
The Redskins running attacked extended the NFL's current 100 yard + streak to 13 consecutive games.
