Ex-Redskins Have Good and Bad but Impactful Days in Week 5

Week 5 had some interesting moments and some of them came from former Skins. In some cases, what they did caused their team to win or lose. Let's look briefly at some of the Ex-Skins from week 5.

Good Day

Jason Campbell (13/18, 159yds; 1TD): The formally benched Campbell came in after Bruce Gradkowski was knocked out of the game in the 2nd qtr. While the numbers aren't that amazing, Campbell managed his offense to lead the Raiders in their first win against the Chargers in seven years.
* Bonus: Rock Cartwright blocked a Charger's punt and led to a safety (ball went out of the endzone).

Bad Day
Ladell Betts (10 carries, 44yds; 5 catches, 26 yards): The numbers don't look bad, but here's what happened: Betts had a Drew Brees pass fly off his fingertips that became an interception and eventually led to a Cardinals TD. He also had a 4th quarter fumble that was picked up and returned for a TD in the Cardinals victory over the Saints.
* Bonus* Todd Collins (6/16, 32 yds; 4 INT): Despite a horrible performance, the Bears beat the Panthers 23-6.
