Washington Football Team: Three takeaways from Week 6 loss to Giants
By Ian Cummings
No. 1 – The offense improved, but momentum-shifting plays made the difference
In prior weeks, Washington’s offense has displayed a complete inability to move the football. That wasn’t the case on Sunday; against a fairly decent Giants defense, the Washington Football Team managed to put together several solid drives.
All in all, Washington logged almost 400 yards of total offense, with 280 yards coming through the air and 86 coming on the ground. Kyle Allen extended some plays and made a few very impressive throws in crucial situations, and several skill position players provided value beyond air yards.
In the end, however, momentum-shifting plays prevented Washington from capitalizing on their offensive success. Allen’s two turnovers highlight that area, as does his failure borne from indecisiveness on the two-point conversion. Washington’s offense has some juice, but inconsistency and turnovers limit their ceiling.
