Washington Redskins

The Redskins defense has created just 1 turnover in 3 games this season. Their offense however has turned the ball over three times in two of their first three games. Quarterback Kirk Cousins has thrown for under 200 yards twice so far. Cousins is not a great player, he has thrown more interceptions then touchdowns in his 4 year career and has won just three of his 12 career starts. Like the Eagles the Redskins give the ball up more then they would like, turning over 18% of their offensive drives while scoring on just 28% of them.

The Redskins do have a very good rushing attack but one wonders if it is good enough to hide a low-end quarterback. Washington totaled 343 total yards on the ground against the Miami Dolphins ans St. Louis Rams but struggled to run the ball against the Giants defensive front, compiling just 88 yards including a combined 57 yards to Alfred Morris and rookie Matt Jones.

The Redskins have been a mess for the better part of the past 15 years. I don’t see anything from this team that suggests they can change that. The quarterback position is one of the weakest on what is already a weak roster. That with the tendency to turn the ball over is a recipe for disaster the Redskins know all to well.
