Redskins interim head coach Bill Callahan pledged to reestablish the run game, and on Sunday in Miami, he did just that. Adrian Peterson logged his first 100-yard game of the season and it was also his first game with more than 20 carries.
One of those carries came with a bit of discussion though.
Great shot by Fox here. Keenum didn't like the look so called "kill, kill". Behind him, Adrian Peterson told him to keep the run called, so Keenum then calls "reload, reload" and Peterson gets the ball handed off #Redskins pic.twitter.com/S7gBjvOqku— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) October 13, 2019
The video shows the situation well, where Washington QB Case Keenum went to audible out of a run play and Peterson basically just told him no. Keenum went back to the run play and Peterson then picked up a first-down run.
In the locker room after the game, Redskins.com reporter Kyle Stackpole asked Peterson about the play. The veteran running back explained that it wasn't just him overruling Keenum but that the Redskins coaches were shouting the same thing from the sideline. That adds up with Callahan's pledge to run the ball more.
The video is still funny, and at 1-5 with the lone victory coming after the awful Dolphins had a chance to win the game in the final seconds, a good laugh is well deserved for Redskins fans.
