The Washington Redskins traded disgruntled receiver Laveranues Coles back to the New York Jets on Saturday and got speedy receiver-kick returner Santana Moss in return. The deal was contingent on both players' passing physicals. A source within the league, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Coles got the new deal he wanted, which held up the trade for the last week. Terms of the deal weren't available.

The final pass by Robert Griffin III on Sunday didn't hit the mark, but the quarterback's critical postgame comments sure did. He pointed to his receivers' inability to get open on a game-ending interception. That angered at least one teammate, and Griffin issued a semi-apology Wednesday. “I think at the end of the day, I just have to know in that situation after a tough loss to a divisional opponent I can't give anybody any opportunity to read into my words and misinterpret anything,” he told reporters.

LANDOVER, Md. -- "Avoid, reset and throw." Jason Campbell did just that, then connected with Santana Moss for a 67-yard touchdown pass play that won the game. Campbell and new Washington Redskins Coach Jim Zorn's West Coast offense succeeded in Week 2 as spectacularly as it failed in Week 1. Campbell went from uncomfortable to prolific, completing 24 of 36 passes for 321 yards in a 29-24 win over New Orleans. The big play came with 3:29 left and the Redskins (1-1) trailing 24-22.

In the first quarter, Washington Redskins receiver Santana Moss made a spin move that left Jacksonville Jaguars safety Deon Grant sprawled on the grass at the 11-yard line. In the fourth quarter, Moss caught a pass and darted inside just in time to make cornerback Brian Williams whiff near the goal line. Then in overtime, Moss dusted Grant and Williams at the same time, leaving them flat-footed on a catch and run that went 68 yards down the left sideline for a score.

Curtis Martin hopes Chad Pennington's performance Sunday changes the way opposing teams look at the New York Jets. Pennington, in the second start of his three-season NFL career, completed 24 of 29 passes for 324 yards to lead the Jets past the Minnesota Vikings, 20-7. "Some of my friends would say to me, 'Curtis, we're coming in there to shut you down,' " Martin said. "That's not the case anymore. Now when teams look at us, they know they can't put the eight-man front in there."

The trouble with track and field in this country can be seen every time Santana Moss leaps for a pass, settles under a punt or outsprints another opposing defense from one end of the field to the other. That should have been Moss spraying sand at the Sydney Olympics three months ago, long jumping for the red, white and blue, reminding the world that America still had a future in the event, instead of as it stands now: A glorious past that shut down operations the minute Carl Lewis retired.

DETROIT -- Santana Moss dashed Detroit's hopes of finally winning a game. Moss had a go-ahead touchdown reception in the third quarter and returned a punt for another score in the fourth, lifting the Washington Redskins to a 25-17 victory over the Lions (0-7). Jason Campbell threw for 328 yards and a touchdown, connecting with Moss nine times for 140 yards for the Redskins (6-2). Clinton Portis joined O.J. Simpson in the NFL record book with his fifth straight game of at least 120 yards rushing.

Doesn't take a genius to figure out the Washington Redskins are in trouble. The Redskins lost for the fifth time in six games, unable to keep up with one of the NFL's lowliest teams. Ryan Fitzpatrick ran for a touchdown and threw for another, leading Cincinnati to a 20-13 win that ended Washington's week of grousing -- and, pretty much, its playoff chances. The main intrigue was how the Redskins (7-7) would react to injuries to their offensive line and grumbling by running back Clinton Portis.
