In sports new, The Lions defeated the Redskins in a very close game. Many fans were upset due to the Redskins loss to the Lions. Although the Redskins lost, they performed very well in their recent games with the Lions. Their overall stats were great but when it came to turnovers and the score, things did not go in their favor. Hopefully, the Redskins in the near future will be able to redeem themselves from this situation.
