No. 5 – Quinton Dunbar gets his fourth interception of 2019
With the Redskins offense starting to find its footing, and with the Redskins pass defense struggling overall, it’s likely that the Lions, even without Matthew Stafford, will try to move the ball through the air frequently.
The Lions have a very solid cast of receivers in Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr., Danny Amendola, and Marvin Hall, and as a whole, they have an advantage over the Redskins secondary. But Washington cornerback Quinton Dunbar has embarked on a career season, in the midst of his unit’s dysfunction.
Dunbar is still one of Pro Football Focus‘ highest-graded cover men with a near-elite grade of 88.3 through ten games. Last week, even with Sam Darnold throwing for four touchdowns, he seldom looked in Dunbar’s direction.
On an island, Dunbar is a legitimate No. 1 cornerback, and against Kenny Golladay, who specializes as a jump ball receiver, Dunbar is bound to get one or two chances at a pick on Sunday. Expect him to capitalize, and add to his rising total, as well as his Pro Bowl resume.
