Tracking stats:

yards per drive: 29.8

2014: 30.89 yards per drive

defensive yards per drive(given up): 30.1

2014: 31.74 defensive yards per drive(given up)

net yards per drive: -0.3

2014: -0.84 net yards per drive

offensive points per drive: 1.41

2014: 1.62 points per drive

defensive points per drive(given up): 1.93

2014: 2.18 defensive points per drive (given up)

net points per drive: -0.52

2014: -0.56 net points per drive

Net sacks: +5

2014: -22

Turnovers: -2

2014: -12

Net 3rd down %: +7%

2014:  -11.5%

What do these stats mean?

Complete and total regression from a decent start to 2015. Outside of net sacks, turnovers, net 3rd down percentages and net defensive points/yards given up the Redskins are now below their efficiency numbers from 2014.

And outside of net sacks and turnovers(which is being saved because of the defense forcing an unusually large number of them), the rest of the stats in positive territory from 2014 are slipping each week.

What we’re seeing is a team falling apart and being completely propped up by the defense giving them multiple turnovers each week. This isn’t sustainable and what happens when the defense doesn’t force multiple fumbles in a game?
