Rams DB Davis defends his play vs. Pryor

After Redskins receiver Terrelle Pryor called out Rams safety Cody Davis on Twitter last week for what he believed was a low hit during their Sept. 17 meeting, Davis sent Pryor a direct message but never heard back.

Rookie Montae Nicholson has made an impact, due in part to safety D.J. Swearinger. "I can't say enough what D.J. means to Montae as far as communication and giving him confidence to play fast and free," coach Jay Gruden said.

Running back Rob Kelley (ribs) and tight end Jordan Reed (rib/shoulder) will likely be limited in practice Wednesday. The Redskins don't play again until Monday night. Reed felt confident he'd play vs. the Chiefs.

Measuring Skins' dominance against Raiders

Washington finished plus-344 in total yards on Sunday night, its best mark in a game since 1974 and the best by any NFL team in a non-overtime game since Week 8 of 2015. Oakland's 128 total yards were the second fewest in a game by any team since the start of 2016. (ESPN Stats & Info)

The importance of 2-1 instead of 1-2

Nine teams that entered Week 3 at 1-1 emerged victorious: the Bills, Eagles, Jaguars, Packers, Patriots, Rams, Redskins, Titans and Vikings. Since the playoff field expanded to 12 in 1990, teams that start 2-1 have reached the playoffs more than twice as often as those that start 1-2.

Vote: The best (and worst) so far from Week 3

What's been the best performance so far this week? What was Sunday's most surprising result? And which of the two remaining undefeated teams is better?

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins RB Chris Thompson will be upset to hear about Darren Sproles' season-ending injuries. Thompson recently said a highlight from 2016 was when Sproles complimented him after a game. Thompson considered Sproles the best third down back.

A key reason the Redskins controlled the ball vs. Oakland: Kirk Cousins completed 10-12 passes for 166 yards on third down. Seven resulted in first downs. It enabled them to keep running the ball.

The Redskins dominated Oakland on both sides of the ball in one of their most complete wins in years. Kirk Cousins and the passing game stood out all night, but the defense was fantastic in shutting down a top offense. Here's the most telling stat of the night: The Raiders were 0-11 on third downs.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The Redskins' defense keeps playing with a lot of energy. For the first time in a while, it also plays with some swagger. Montae Nicholson, Zach Brown and D.J. Swearinger all have huge hits.
