Mike Shanahan's switch from Rex Grossman to former Ravens backup John Beck as starting quarterback couldn't ignite the Washington Redskins, who suffered another series of critical injuries to their starters Sunday as they lost, 33-20, to the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. A week after Grossman got the hook during a loss to the struggling Philadelphia Eagles, Beck took over — making his first start since December 2007 — but he and his increasingly battered team were defeated, 33-20, by a one-win team for a second consecutive week.

The Ravens proved that they still have one of the more formidable rush defenses in the NFL, suffocating the Washington Redskins by holding them to 25 yards on 14 carries in the Ravens' 23-3 win Saturday night. Defending the pass, however, might be a different matter. The Ravens surrendered 365 passing yards to the Redskins, and the defensive coverage provided by the linebackers in the middle of the field could be a cause for concern. Five of Washington quarterback Donovan McNabb's 11 completions and 89 of his 206 yards came in the middle of the field.

ASHBURN, Va. - Chris Cooley is eager and as unassuming as a man can be when he's 6 feet 3, 265 pounds and has just been asked to start his first NFL game for a Hall of Fame coach at a position the coach helped make famous. The Washington Redskins' rookie H-back replies, "Oh, it feels amazing," when asked about the team's plans to make him a significant part of the offense Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in coach Joe Gibbs' return to football after an 11-year hiatus. Cooley's position is a hybrid fullback-tight end. Gibbs popularized the H-back in the '80s with such players as Clint Didier and Rick "Doc" Walker.

I t was 5:07 p.m. Sunday when a stone-faced John Beck trudged through the South Field Tunnel toward the players parking lot outside FedEx Field. He wore a brown wool blazer, jeans, brown leather shoes and a baseball cap as he wheeled a small black carry-on suitcase up the cement ramp. "John, we still love you," a group of fans yelled from behind one barricade outside the parking lot fence. "Hang in there. Don't listen to them. " To the right, just 20 feet away and very much within earshot, were some of Beck's detractors, chanting, "We want Rex!

Washington 19, Tennessee 16 (OT) Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Graham Gano kicked a 48-yard field goal with 8:17 remaining in overtime, as the Washington Redskins prevailed with a 19-16 win over the Tennessee Titans at LP Field. Gano, who missed a 47-yarder at the end of regulation, got another chance after the Titans failed on their first offensive try of overtime. Donovan McNabb was instrumental in helping the Redskins get into field goal range in the extra period. Starting at their own 13-yard line, McNabb connected with Chris Cooley for a 26-yard pass and two plays later, an unnecessary roughness call on the Titans plus a replay reversal of an interception gave the 'Skins possession on their own 42. Tennessee was then flagged for a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty that moved the ball to the Titans' 43. After a short run and 10-yard completion to Santana Moss, the Redskins had it on the 31. Washington (5-5)

ASHBURN, Va. -- Brandon Lloyd could sense it nearly from the first time he stepped onto the practice field for the Washington Redskins last spring. As much as he was bonding with new teammates Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El, there was a pervading sense of competition among the receivers. Even though Moss had established himself as Mark Brunell's favorite target last season - in reality his only reliable receiver besides tight end Chris Cooley - Lloyd believed that he and fellow newcomer Randle El were actually fighting with Moss for one of the starting jobs.
