McNabb leads Redskins to rout of Bills in preseason debut

LANDOVER, MD- AUGUST 13: Donovan McNabb

Donovan McNabb went 5-for-8 with 58 yards and a  passing  touchdown in  his Washington  debut as  the Redskins clobbered the Buffalo Bills, 42-17, in the preseason opener for both squads.

Rex  Grossman tossed  two touchdowns on 11-for-18 passing with 140 yards while Keiland  Williams had  two  touchdowns on  the ground  for  the Redskins,  who finished  last season with  a mark of 4-12, last in the NFC East. Devin Thomas had three catches for 64 yards and a score in the win.

Trent Edwards went 6-for-12 with 58 yards and an interception in the start for the  Bills, who  went 6-10 last season and  sat at the bottom of the AFC East. Joique Bell ran for a touchdown while David Nelson caught a score.

Rian  Lindell kicked a 38-yard field goal in the first quarter, but Washington scored  21 unanswered points before halftime on an Anthony Armstrong four-yard touchdown  catch from  McNabb, a Williams two-yard score and a nine-yard catch by Fred Davis from Grossman to take a 21-3 lead into the break.

Washington’s Brandon Banks returned a punt 77 yards in the third, while Thomas added a 44-yard touchdown catch to extend the lead to 35-3 in the third.

Nelson  caught  a  five-yard  pass  from  Fitzpatrick,  while  Bell’s  28-yard touchdown  run made it a 35-17 game, but Williams added a seven-yard touchdown run later in the fourth to account for the final score.
