Since their offensive stars aren't really getting it done, the Redskins have been relying on their role players to come up big. Brandon Banks, Anthony Armstrong, and Keiland Williams are each having productive games.
The Redskins were fortunate to begin their first drive of the fourth quarter inside Lions territory. After Washington forced Detroit to punt once again, Banks returned the ball 35 yards to Detroit's 46-yard line, giving the Redskins excellent field position with which to begin their drive.
On the first play of the drive, Donovan McNabb went deep to his favorite big play threat Anthony Armstrong. The receiver was able to get open down the middle of the field for a 35-yard gain.
With the ball then on the Detroit 11-yard line, the Redskins turned to running back Keiland Williams. Two straight runs by Williams and some quality blocking on the left side of the offensive line allowed the Redskins to punch the ball into the end zone and retake the lead.
