The Washington Redskins experienced the ultimate highs and lows Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
From injuries to quarterback Robert Griffin III and wide receiver DeSean Jackson to displaying total domination on offense, defense and special teams for the first time in recent memory, Sunday had it all.
Washington racked up 449 yards on offense and the defense held the Jaguars to just 148 yards in a 41-10 victory, evening their record to 1-1 on the season and snapping their streak of nine straight losses dating back to 2013.
