Redskins beat Colts 16-3
John Beck led Washington to scores on its first four possessions, and the Redskins used a dominant first half to beat the Indianapolis Colts 16-3 on Friday night.
Beck made a strong statement in his bid to be Washington's starting quarterback by going 14 of 17 for 140 yards with no interceptions. Tim Hightower scored the game's only TD on a 1-yard run. Beck also set up Graham Gano for field goals of 28, 27 and 26 yards as the Redskins took a 16-0 lead late in the first half.
Rex Grossman, in competition with Beck for the starting job, was 7 of 13 for 88 yards with one interception in the second half. Indianapolis, playing again without Peyton Manning, has lost eight straight preseason games and is 4-24 since 2005 in games played in August and early September.
