A fortunate penalty helped the Washington Redskins regain control of this NFL preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens just before halftime. The Redskins appeared to get stuffed on third down, but a delay of game was called on the play. On the ensuing play, Rex Grossman found a wide-open Santana Moss for a 24-yard touchdown to give the Redskins a 21-14 lead.
The Redskins got it down to the Ravens' 19-yard line with less than a minute remaining when the drive appeared to stall. The Ravens victimized Grossman with an all-out blitz, forcing an incomplete pass. But the Redskins were called for a delay of game, moving the ball back to the 24-yard line. On the ensuing play, Ravens rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith blew the coverage, allowing Moss to run wide open for a touchdown.
Grossman has received the bulk of the snaps in the first half for the Redskins. John Beck was in for a couple series, but only attempted three passes.
