Redskins Week 7 Reality Checks – The Shanahan Revenge Game
By Tim Payne
4. The Reality Is, the starting offense line is healthy now.
Of course, Trent Williams isn’t out there. But the Week 1 starting offensive line does look to be back in tact this week, and that, combined with a continued emphasis on limiting penalties, should spell more holes for Adrian Peterson and more time for Case Keenum in the pocket.
If both of those things happen, the Redskins’ offense could do just enough to stay competitive against a devastatingly good 49ers defense. Case Keenum isn’t good enough to overcome a bad offensive line, as he proved last season in Denver. But if the Redskins have their healthy offensive line, he should be able to make some plays in Kevin O’Connell’s second week calling plays.
My Prediction: The 49ers defensive front will make some big plays, but largely, the offensive line will hold their own (But they won’t go a second-straight week without a penalty).
