Washington Football Team: Week 2 reality checks, predictions vs. Cardinals
By Tim Payne
Here are reality checks and realistic predictions for the Washington Football Team’s meeting with the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2.
In my third season of reality checks for the Washington Football Team, this week is one of the most difficult to decipher what reality is. Did this team beat an underwhelming and wounded squad without their best players, or did they take down the defending division champions?
Is the Washington Defense we saw in the first 20 minutes of the game the one we should expect the rest of the season, or is the one that played the last 40 minutes?
Is the quarterback who went 3-of-13 to start the game and looked uncomfortable the one we’re going to get the rest of the season, or is it the one who led the team to a 75 percent success rate on four red-zone trips?
And if the ambiguity about Washington’s performance in Week 1 isn’t enough, what is there to learn from their upcoming opponent’s Week 1 comeback win against the defending NFC champions?
I’ve heard fortune favors the bold, so I’m jumping off into the Week 2 Reality Checks with both feet.
