LANDOVER, Md. -- The Redskins have had a lot of success running the ball to the left side, but tonight they've run the stretch to the right side quite a bit. That may have something to do with left tackle Chris Samuels being banged up right now.

The Steelers have done a nice job of maintaining gap control and not allowing Portis to find seams. He's one of the best backs in the league at getting yards after contact -- as evidenced by how defensive end Aaron Smith bounced off him in the backfield.

Ladies and gentlemen: The Redskins are now 0-for-7 on third downs. Wait, make that 0-for-8. Fabulous punting contest going on -- if you don't count Mitch Berger. Oops. Redskins punter Ryan Plackemeier was just blocked by Andre Frazier. First blocked punt of Plackemeier's career.
