When the Washington Redskins play the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday it won’t be in Cincinnati Ohio, rather in London England with 90,000 fans in Wembley Stadium. Let’s accept it, our Redskins are now International. I knew we had fans all over the world, but never expected our Redskins to play all over the world.
The Baltimore Ravens fired their offensive coordinator after losing to the Washington Redskins, their 2nd straight loss. Our 3 and 2 Washington Redskins are back in the mix and a victory next game at home versus the Philadelphia Eagles will put us at 4 and 2, 2 and 1 in the NFC East Division. That said, for us be competitive in the division we have to get back to the basics – 21 pass plays to 8 rushing plays in the first half shows room for improvement.
Our Washington Redskins defeated the Cleveland Browns by the score of 31 to 20. It’s “Victory Monday”. The game was closer than the score would indicate. The First Quarter was “owned” by the Redskins. The offense was sharp, two long drives resulting in touchdown passes by Captain Kirk Cousins, who was 10 of 11 passes and commanded a balanced attack with Matt Jones running the ball almost 50 percent ot the successful touchdown drives. It appeared the Redskins were on their way to a rout over the Cleveland Browns.
Of the four preseason games this one will probably be the most valuable to our starting players and to our coaching staff. I believe we will our starters at least the first half before coaches start “experimenting, trying different packages, and backup players. Hopefully we will see our 2016 Washington Redskins play a penalty-free game dominating the line of scrimmage and scoring points. Also, a top secondary and a powerful front 7 defense is desirable.
