Meanwhile, the Washington francise, that I refuse to name, had a less than stellar performance even after benching polarizing QB RGIII. Washington fell victim to the high-powered Colts offense and lost 49-27. It was the most points surrendered by the Washington defense this season.
It is almost getting embarassing for Dan Synder’s team. Via John Keim of ESPN.com, some tickets to this have fallen to a price of $4 on the secondary market. Standing-room only seats can be had for a mere $3. Elsewhere, more than 6,400 tickets can be purchased starting at $5.25.
