Tress Way's eventful Week 5 includes the end of his touchback streak and a sick tackle

Tress Way's eventful Week 5 includes the end of his touchback streak and a sick tackle

Tress Way was a busy man in the first half against the Patriots in Week 5.

Unfortunately, the first notable thing he did at FedEx Field stood out because it was the end of a long, magical and memorable streak.

Everyone turn on your go-to emo music.

Way's third punt of the afternoon found the end zone for a touchback. Now, a punter finding the end zone for a touchback usually isn't a that wild, unless your name is Tressler William Way. 

It was the first touchback for Way since Week 15 of the 2017 season. He avoided one for 22-plus games. That's absurd, and everyone should feel sad that the run is over.

Way wasn't sad, however. Apparently, he was actually angry, because on his next kick, No. 5 absolutely took out New England's returner:

Hopefully a new touchback-less stretch will begin soon for the Redskins' stud special teamer. Until then, let's enjoy his transformation into a vicious tackler.

Former Redskin D.J. Swearinger pays tribute to Sean Taylor with new tattoo

D.J. Swearinger may have had short, yet quite eventful, two-year tenure in Washington, but he may have just endeared himself in the hearts of Redskins fans forever. 

The former Washington free safety recently inked a new tattoo paying tribute to one of the best free safeties and Redskins legend in Sean Taylor. Swearinger was signed in the offseason heading into the 2017 season before starting all 31 games he played in the Burgundy and Gold. 

He made eight interceptions, 132 tackles, and one Pro Bowl appearance as a part of Greg Manusky's secondary. Now, he cemented a roster spot on the New Orleans Saints -- the third time he's switched teams in two years following his release from the Redskins. 

Taylor was killed in a 2007 armed burglary and remains a fan favorite of Redskins fans everywhere.

Joe Burrow has small hands AND a big sense of humor

Seeing that Joe Burrow is a potential No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, it makes sense that all eyes are on him. However, the attention right now is centered around only one part of him: his hands.

According to ESPN, the LSU quarterback’s hand measurements came in at nine inches, making Burrow’s hands the smallest of any first-round quarterback the NFL combine has seen since 2008.

While followers of the NFL draft and sports fans alike grappled with this statistic, Burrow took to Twitter to joke about the reaction to this information being released.

Burrow’s dash of humor was received well by Twitter users, with many people replying with praise of him and his response to this potentially touchy situation.

Burrow may have small hands, but he certainly compensates with his big sense of humor.
