Five bold predictions for Redskins vs. Falcons in NFL preseason Week 3
The Washington Redskins are taking on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3 of the 2019 NFL preseason. Here’s a look at some bold predictions for the game.
Let’s start with the bad news: It’s still the preseason. These games matter only for player development and roster construction and while that is interesting, any suspense that would normally exist late in a game is rendered meaningless.
The good news: It’s still football. And the third preseason week is often the closest we get to real-game action during the preseason. The Redskins are taking on the Falcons and should play their starters for about a half each, give or take, barring any surprises. And while the results may not matter, the Redskins could have a chance to win.
In his last 11 preseason games, Falcons coach Dan Quinn is a mind-boggling 0-11. That’s shocking considering that he is a good coach and the Falcons, when healthy, are one of the stronger teams in the league. They will test the Redskins with their talent, but hopefully, the Redskins can keep it close and give this 90-man squad a taste of what winning is like.
The preseason is a time of unpredictability and it gives players a chance to step up and put forth big numbers. This week, a lot of crazy things could happen, especially with the ‘Skins likely to give two quarterbacks a majority of the action. Here’s a look at some bold predictions for the Redskins ahead of their second-to-last preseason game.
