The Washington Redskins jumped out to an encouraging start to the 2018 season thanks in large part to stout defense and just enough offense. Unfortunately, on a day when the defense finally faltered, the offense was incapable of picking up the slack and the results weren’t pretty.
Adding insult to literal injury, Sunday’s 38-14 blowout loss to the Atlanta Falcons may have long-term ramifications as two more offensive linemen joined Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams on the injured list. At this point, if you’re a hefty gentleman and you live anywhere near the nation’s capital, now might be a good time to update your resume.
Meanwhile, Washington’s modest three-game winning streak is over and the Redskins now stand at 5-3.
