Few Redskins WRs have started their career better than Jamison Crowder

Few Redskins WRs have started their career better than Jamison Crowder

So much of this Redskins season has been up and down and hard to figure out, but one thing that's remained consistent throughout has been Jamison Crowder's play.

And on Sunday in the Redskins' 26-20 win over the Vikings, he accomplished something that further illustrates just how good of a receiver he's been so far for Washington.

With his rolling touchdown catch that capped his team's opening drive, Crowder reached the 100 reception mark for his NFL career. He did so in just 25 games, too, which is fewer than any player in franchise history outside of Gary Clark (22) and Charlie Brown (23).

The second year man from Duke finished the game with four grabs for 37 yards and that first quarter score. He's caught multiple passes every week this season and has broken into the end zone far more often than he did as a rookie as well, making him arguably the offense's best option up to this point.

With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon's futures in doubt, plus the questions surrounding the start to Josh Doctson's life in the NFL, a lot is unsteady at wide receiver for the Redskins. But when it comes to Crowder, Jay Gruden, Kirk Cousins and others know exactly what they're going to get each time he takes the field. Plenty more milestones feel imminent for the rising star.

2018 NFL Power Rankings: Titans rising, shake-up in Top 10

How far did New England fall? How high did the Patriots rise?

Despite missing three starting offensive lineman and several other key contributors due to injury, the Redskins got back in the win column with a 16-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With a two game lead in the NFC East, their stock rose a tad.

Coming off their bye week, the Eagles fell to the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. How were each of their rankings affected?

The Saints won their eighth straight, while the Steelers won their fifth straight. Where do these two rank in the Top 5?

The battle for No. 32 is perhaps more interesting than the battle for No. 1, but the Raiders stay in control of the bottom spot for now.

Adrian Peterson is fifth in rushing and, oh yeah, he finally feels fully healthy now

The version of Adrian Peterson the Redskins have been getting this year — the one who currently sits as the NFL's fifth-leading rusher and the one who has been the team's only consistent offensive threat — hasn't even been the fully in-shape version, according to Peterson.

If you take him at his word, that's a pretty frightening thought for non-Redskins defenses to ponder.

After practice on Wednesday, the 33-year-old was asked about how he's feeling after dealing with ankle and shoulder problems earlier in the season. Those problems are apparently now all behind him.

"Last week, I actually started feeling all the way healthy," he said in the 'Skins locker room. "My shoulder, I'm back to bench pressing. I hadn't done that in three weeks. And so I'm back to doing the normal things that I was able to do. My ankle's feeling good, my body's just feeling refreshed."

Oh, so the guy who's been averaging nearly 75 yards per game on about 17 carries per game and the guy who's scored four total touchdowns through nine contests is only just now back to normal?

Damn.

"Second half has been a blessing to me, you know?" he said. "It was a grind the first eight weeks, and here now, as I stand in front of you, my body's feeling amazing."

Must be nice to be one of the sport's best players of this generation, huh?
