HOUSTON, November 3, 2013 — Earlier today the Redskins walked away with an overtime victory, 30-24, against the San Diego Chargers. This was a much needed victory for the Skins as they entered the game with a record of 2-5.

Alfred Morris continues to do well on the ground as he rushed for 121 yards this week. Pierre Garcon was arguably the best player on the field and was utilized more today than in previous games, as he made seven catches for a total of 172 yards. Robert Griffin III threw for 291 yards but had one interception in the first quarter which was run back for a Chargers touchdown by lineman Sean Lissemore.

For the rest of the game, RG3 played with a devil may care attitude. He took numerous hits and kept performing. Although some of his throws were not necessarily pretty, Pierre Garcon was able to make them work, sometimes catching seemingly impossible receptions.  

Ten of Washington’s points came after Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers threw two interceptions. This paired with odd play calling decisions cost the Charges the game. In the 4th quarter with under a minute left, the Chargers had time for three plays, with only a foot needed to move the ball into the end zone. They first tried to utilize Danny Woodhead but he was stopped with no gain on the field. Rivers then passed the ball twice, both to no avail, even though they had a timeout remaining. The Chargers were then successful with a field goal to tie the game, only to lose the overtime coin toss allowing the Redskins to seize a victory thanks for a touchdown by fullback Darrel Young.

Darrel Young entered this game with only two carries this entire season, and ended up with a total of three touchdowns including the one to clinch the game in overtime.

Now with a 3-5 record the Redskins are tied for second place with the Philadelphia Eagles in a struggling NFC East. The Redskins will go to Minnesota next week to take on the Vikings.

I am the author of, When Jonathan Cried for Me, a story of struggle and redemption. I was once diagnosed with PTSD and depression because of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a pedophile. I have spent the last four years of my life transforming myself from a broken person, into one with complete inner peace and no signs of those afflictions.

For most of my life, my only dream was to be in the sports entertainment industry, which I accomplished in my twenties by becoming a licensed professional wrestler, promoter and booker. After years in that industry – and many injuries later! – I realized that this was no longer my dream. I ventured into stage acting, stand-up comedy, and promoted bands in the local music scenes.

After years of trying to find my niche in life, I discovered my meaning in life, my purpose; I had an epiphany of what I was supposed to do. I started Innovative Social Dynamics LLC. Through my business I educate, inspire and challenge others to obtain positive transformation through the knowledge of the mind, science, and innovative philosophy. The tool for transformation and personal greatness exists inside of everyone. You can read more about me, my business and my book at http://www.whenjonathancriedforme.com
