Jackson shows MVP form to help Ravens beat Washington 31-17
– A few big plays went a long way for the Baltimore Ravens, who took a small step toward regaining the form they displayed last year as the highest-scoring team in the league. Lamar Jackson ran for a 50-yard touchdown and threw for two scores in a bounce-back performance by the reigning NFL MVP and the Ravens, who took control early against Washington in a 31-17 victory Sunday. Washington (1-3) had more first downs, owned an edge in time of possession and had only 7 fewer yards than Baltimore. The game was tough to watch for Washington coach Ron Rivera, and not just because of the score. Weakened by treatment he received during the week for cancer, Rivera occasionally took a break by sitting on the bench.
Former Hokies hope to make an impact in year two with Redskins
RICHMOND, Va. - It's one thing to make an NFL roster, but another to actually make an impact. That's the focus for three former Hokies who are part of the Redskins defense. That includes Virginia Tech product Greg Stroman, who made his presence known a season ago-making 38 tackles and an interception. "You have to find out how to eat, how to work out and you have to find yourself," said Settle. We can expect these three to lean on former Hokie and now Redskins defensive quality control coach, Kyshoen Jarrett, who made the ultimate impact, playing in 15 games for Washington in 2015.

Jarrett is back in burgundy as a defensive quality control coach for the Redskins.

Hes going to be a great great football coach.Jarrett rejoins the Virginia tech fraternity that includes defensive backs, Greg Stroman, Adonis Alexander and defensive lineman, Tim Settle in the Redskins camp. It's a kind of a touch that Hokie stone and walk through that tunnel, Jarrett said.
