Too Close For Comfort:
Power ranking are as accurate a drunk swinging at a Piñata with only 6 games played, but most “experts” are ranking our Washington Redskins now at 12th and the Lions at 16th.

It’s Crunch Time
When the Washington Redskins go into the Lions den to face Detroit expect a lot of action. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has the ability to pick defenses apart when not pressured, and Stafford will be playing in his 100th game. The Lions record is 3 and 3 – they won their last two games so expect it to be close, and expect it to be a battle.

A Few Observations:

  • The Redskins O-line and defense if underrated in my view
  • I see our Redskins rushing for over 200 yards on the Lions
  • The passing yardage should match the rushing
  • Kirk Cousins will throw some touchdown passes in the redzone
  • Our improved rushing defense should pressure Stafford and create sack opportunities
  • Our secondary is overdue for forced turnovers and interceptions.
  •  
    Our Washington Redskins are a team on the rise and improving on offense and defense. It appears that Offensive Coordinator Sean McVay is calling better plays now that he is high up in the coaches booth seeing the entire field. Defensive Coordinator Joe Barry seems to have corrected poor tackling issues as his defense has not give up any touchdowns in the second half of the last games. In fact against the high flying Eagles, they sacked quarterback Carson Wentz 6 times and pressured him virtually the entire game. In that game, the defense only gave up 2 field goals, keep the Eagles from scoring a touchdown.

    Assuming our Redskins will play smart without many penalties and our O-line will dominate the Lions front 7, I see our Redskins scoring over 32 points and our defense keeping the Lions under 21 points. I believe the team doctor and the independent doctor will clear Jordan Reed and Su’a Cravens to play Sunday. Both are under the league supervised concussion protocol. Maybe after our BYE week, we might see a healthy 1st Round pick Josh Doctson.

    Prepare to celebrate our 5th straight win and be 5 and 2. We love Victory Mondays.
