The Redskins have another chance to double their win total this week. Will it go as badly as the last one did?
Last week, the Washington Redskins fell at the hands of the Adam Gase-led New York Jets, by a score of 34-17. At one point, the game was 34 to 3, and the level of ineptitude displayed by Washington was a startling thing, especially after the bye week. But it wasn’t a new development. All throughout 2019, the Redskins have been unable to compete consistently, and their lowest moments have been synonymous with pure dysfunction.
That said, there is a slowly budding optimism in Ashburn. The team’s young core, consisting of Dwayne Haskins, Derrius Guice, and Terry McLaurin, displayed growth against the Jets, and the hope is that, with another week of home practices, they can start to truly unlock their potential against the short-handed Lions. Both teams are essentially out of the playoff race, so a win on Sunday doesn’t count toward much. But for Washington, it would at least be a sign of progress, in a season that has been almost completely devoid of such a thing.
The Redskins are in the early slate of games, and their matchup with the Lions will kick off at 1:00 PM EST.
