The Redskins are at an all time low after getting beat like they stole something last week. With injuries to key players and a lack of consistency at the quarterback position, it would be easy to write off the Redskins season right now at 3-4. I have a few reasons why Redskins Nation shouldn’t do that.
Homecoming Week- I’ts Homecoming week for a few homesick 49ers (Navorro Bowman, Vernon Davis) and former Redskins C. Rogers. The energy level in FedEx field is going to be pretty high in anticipation of this contest. TheWashington,DCnatives will be under a lot of pressure to perform well on their visit to their hometown. I believe that added pressure will cause a few chances to take advantage of Bowman and Davis trying to force extra effort.Washingtonhas not been very successful this season with creating productivity from their opponents mistakes, but tomorrow is a new day. Carlos Rogers is already talking about how excited he is to come back to DC and get a win.Rogersis leading the 49ers with three interceptions this season (I don’t think he had three interceptions his whole time inWashington). I believe that being back in FedEx will causeRogersto overplay and get beat deep a few times. It’s up to the Redskins to punch the ball in the endzone.
Safety first-San Franciscohas been successful by running the ball effectively and not turning the ball over. The safe offensive strategies theSan Franciscopractices, falls right into the strengths of the Redskins defense. Without Alex Smith taking chances down the field, the Redskins blitz happy defense won’t pose as much of a problem Sunday. Hopefully, this will force Smith to rush some throws to cause some interceptions.
Overall, my outlook on Sunday is very positive because I don’t believe it is possible for a team to look that bad two weeks in a row. The Redskins gameplan should hold up and bring our beloved team back to .500 on the year. Every game from here on out is a must win forWashingtonespecially with the talent of the other NFC East teams. Prediction:Washington13San Francisco10.
