FedEx Ground Moment: Chris Baker's Fumble Recovery


This week's FedEx Ground Moment of the Week takes a closer look at Chris Baker's fumble recovery in the Redskins' Week 17 victory over the Cowboys.

Chris Baker capped off the best season of his four-year career with a sack and fumble recovery on Sunday in the Washington Redskins' 34-23 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. [



In the first quarter on a 1st-and-10 play from their own 34-yard line, Cowboys quarterback Kellen Moore failed to grab a low snap.

As he reached back to grab for the ball, Baker jumped over Moore to recover the football and secured possession.

Baker's play gave the ball rigth back to a scorching hot Redskins offense, and eight plays later, quarterback Kirk Cousins found second-year wide receiver Ryan Grant for a three-yard touchdown. It was the third touchdown pass of the opening frame for Cousins.

Baker finished the regular season with career highs across the board, as he tallied 53 tackles with six sacks and three fumbles forced.
