(Newser) – Redskins receiver Santana Moss blames himself for his team’s 17-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers. When Moss fumbled on a reverse, cornerback Charles Woodson recovered it and scampered 57 yards for the touchdown. “When it comes down to the points that we lost by, that was the ball that I fumbled,” said Moss, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.

Washington went into halftime with a 14-7 lead, but struggled once they returned to the field. They lost two fumbles, twice turned the ball over on downs and, most importantly, failed to score in a futile second half. "He was carrying the ball kind of wild," said the Pack's Corey Williams afterwards about stripping Moss on the reverse. "I just had to go for the ball."
