welcome back to the dreary rainy link. i'm losing my voice. it's freezing and lindsay murphy, dave feldman on a 17 had 12 victory for the washington redskins on the road. they proved to 2-2 and are 2-0 in the division. all week murphy, donovan mcnabb said it's just another game. it wasn't. >> no. and you know what? i think he thought he was going to get booed. they had a standing ovation for him when he first came out of the tunnel which was awesome. i got goose bumps. that was cool, but he did get bad his first offense when redskins offense took the field. let's look at 0 donovan did this afternoon. he ran -- what donovan did this afternoon. he ran out of the visitors tunnel and led his team to victory completing 8 of 19 passes for 125 yards with one touchdown and one interception. he also proved he's still got the legs rushing five times for
39 yards, but most impressive, his role as the game's manager. controlling the run game and clock late in the game and leading the redskins to 17 points on their first three possessions. his return to philly brought with it a ton of emotions and this star quarterback is glad this week is over. >> coming over here felt like i just crossed the players parking spot. i've been doing it for eight years and although mike has taken my parking spot still was the same feeling and coming out of the tunnel, it's a different tunnel, but it felt like i was playing back here in lincoln financial again. >> it feels good to get it for him. all we wanted him to know it wasn't going to be just him. it was going to be all us right along with him and i'm proud of the way these guys fought for him. we fought for him, scrapped for him and that's our guy. that's our brother now and we'll keep fighting for him. >> he spent his whole career here and we know what it meant
for us to go out there and perform for our brother. they got rid of him and we with open arms and i'm very happy that we were able to go out here and perform well. >> i guess we know how to win, but we need to learn how to put a team away. that's too much drama and especially on that last drive when we really had the chance to lock it up, but you get that feeling of winning and you build on that and hopefully we can continue to not only win games at the last second, but maybe take a knee for once. >> reporter: too much drama with this team, but the great thing, 0-6 in the division last year, now 2-0 and the run game, pretty good tonight as well. >> reporter: it was good. you know what? if they ever could take a knee, be a lot easier on all of us. >> reporter: we wouldn't be standing in the press box waiting to go down on the field every time. >> reporter: no, we wouldn't. the running game was spectacular even though clinton portis did leave with a groin
injury -- tough to talk -- he will be reevaluated tomorrow, but clinton portis did get his fair share of carries. so did his buddy ryan torain who ran 18 time for 70 yards chug running over clinton michael for the first -- including running over clinton michael for the first touchdown of the game and clinton portis rushed 11 times for 55 yards, 26 yards receiving. redskins rushed the ball 35 times all in all for 169 yards. so clinton portis, that's a pretty good day on the ground, isn't it? >> that was exciting, you know, just to have the opportunity to be part of the game to carry the team. i told ryan it's a game, it's a game. we know he's going to run the run and this is going to be a big game and we were there to fight with donovan. >> reporter: seemed very good to see clinton portis in a good mood in a nice shirt. he looked good and he was in a good mood because he and ryan
torain ran the ball a lot. >> reporter: i have a new nickname for ryan torain. it's torain the train and clinton portis, the groin injury, you may be seeing a lot more of him. >> reporter: if you're looking for the license plate number on clinton michael it's 46. we'll take a break and come back and check out how the baltimore ravens did. remember antwaan randle el? he used to be here. now he's here and gone. >> reporter: gone. back to pittsburgh. >> reporter: how did the raines do? >> reporter: you tell me. -- the ravens do? >> reporter: you tell me.
