Fred Davis finally snares first TD of season
There was plenty of talk before the season about how the Redskins might take advantage of two strong pass-catchers lining up at tight end. Heading down the final stretch of the schedule, Chris Cooley has been a favorite target of quarterback Donovan McNabb. Fred Davis, on the other, didn't notch his first touchdown of the season until Sunday.
The Redskins put an exclamation point on one of their best drives of the season with McNabb's 10-yard touchdown pass to Davis in the end zone to open Sunday's game. It would stand as the Redskins' lone touchdown of the day, which is why Davis wasn't in a celebrating mood after the game.
"It's frustrating. This is like the third bad team that we lost to," Davis said. "It's one of them things where we should have won the game. I hate those types of games where we feel like we should have won but we didn't."
Davis finished the game with 25 yards on three catches. He caught all three passes that were thrown his way. The three receptions might sound paltry, but it ties his season-high. Davis also had three against Indianapolis.
The problem for the Redskins: all three of those catches were in the first half. McNabb didn't look Davis's way once in the final two quarters when the game was on the line. Davis said the game plan didn't change at halftime.
"Not really. Stayed with the same stuff," he said. "Just didn't work like we wanted it to."
Cooley led all Redskins with 49 yards on five catches. He had only one catch in the second half.
