Redskins Halftime Takeaways: Mother nature wins first half in D.C.

After two quarters, the Washington Redskins are tied 0-0 with the 49ers. Whoever does win this game will need an asterisk next to their feat, because the rain has impacted the game in almost every possible way.

The Washington Redskins started out strong on their first drive, feeding Adrian Peterson with a frequency Bill Callahan has enjoyed in his stint as head coach thus far. A fairly efficient 12-play drive led to nothing more than a missed field goal, however, and after that, it was a great deal of trading off from offense to offense.

Both offenses found it challenging to pass the football, as the perpetual saturated state of the field hindered the quarterbacks’ abilities to even get a firm hold on the football.
