Redskins vs. Lions preview: Matchups to watch, score prediction, more
By Ian Cummings
The Redskins continue their home tour on Sunday, when they take on the Detroit Lions of the NFC North.
The Washington Redskins have long been eliminated from the NFC playoff race, for all practical purposes. After ten games, the Redskins are 1-9, with their only win coming against the lowly Miami Dolphins. They haven’t competed since the first half of the first game, and by now, pure competition is no longer the primary directive in 2019.
Instead, the focus has shifted to the development of younger players, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. Last week against the New York Jets, Dwayne Haskins, Derrius Guice, and Terry McLaurin showcased their potential as the team’s next exciting trio on offense. Against the Lions, they’ll look to compound the strides made last week, while the defense will look to rebound against a backup quarterback.
How do the Redskins match up against the Detroit Lions, and do they have a chance to double their win total in Week 12? Let’s take a look!
