Oh, Rex Grossman. Bad Rex showed up early in the Washington Redskins game vs. the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. With the Redskins operating out of their own end zone, Grossman dropped back on third and long and was sacked, fumbled and watched the Patriots recover the ball to take a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.
Here's video of the disaster:
Andre Carter, facing his old team, was the man who got to Grossman on the pass rush and forced the fumble. Vince Wilfork recovered the ball for the touchdown. The Redskins offensive line took a hit this week without Trent Williams, who is suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
