Five Faves Of '18: Redskins Instagrams


With the 2018 season coming to a close, it's time to look back and reflect at some of the top moments of the Redskins campaign. will be revisiting our favorite parts of the year.

Here, We'll look back at our five favorite Redskins Instagrams.

1. Reunited And It Feels So Good

Long time friends and college teammates, Trent Williams and Adrian Peterson had always dreamed about getting to play with each other in the NFL. In 2018, that dream became a reality when the Redskins signed Peterson during the preseason. As someone who vouched for Washington to sign AP the year prior, Williams made sure to join Peterson as he signed the contract. The two's smiles haven't worn off much, as Williams is heading to his seventh Pro Bowl and AD has another 1,000-yard season under his belt.

2. Scootin' Around

After Peterson scored his 100th career touchdown in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals, he decided to reward the men up front who helped him achieve the goal. Each of the offensive lineman, along with his running backs and quarterback, were given a motorized scooter to help them easily move around Redskins Park. Based on their reactions, its safe to say AP found the perfect gift.

3. Snow Day

Though there hasn't been much of it this season, there's nothing quite like football in the snow. During a day of practice, Redskins players were finally greeted with the first snowfall of their season. Practice may have been inside, but that didn't stop some of the guys from taking a moment to relive their childhood and have a snowball fight. Here, we see defensive end Jonathan Allen, snowball in hand, planning his attack. I'll be honest, if I see Allen coming my way with a snowball, I'm running the other way as fast as I possibly can.

4. Home For The Holidays

After Alex Smith suffered a season-ending injury in Week 11, he was finally able to return home a few weeks later. Nothing is better than seeing our QB back with his loved ones and he begins the road to recovery. Also, the picture gets bonus points for the exceptional mug and blanket.

5. A Moment of Reflection

This picture really doesn't need any words to do it justice, but we'll try our best. In Week 16, quarterback Josh Johnson, the Redskins fourth starting passer of the season, helped lead Washington to a 16-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in what was his first start since 2011. Not only did the victory keep the Redskins in the playoff hunt for another week, but it was Johnson's first of his career. Following the game, the veteran expressed a lot of emotion on the field, as he described the win as a relief. With the sun reflecting down on him, this truly is a perfect photo.
