A case for keeping the Redskins far away from Monday Night Football

The Washington Redskins jumped out to an early lead against Philadelphia and Dallas before letting off the gas and ultimately faltering to a division rival.

Welp.

They didn’t really have to worry about blowing a lead against the Chicago Bears in Week 3 because this one was over long before the Redskins ever found the endzone.

Chicago’s defense feasted on the Redskins, thanks to five Case Keenum turnovers, and cruised to a 31-15 victory that wasn’t nearly as close as the final score might suggest.

With the loss, the Redskins are now 1-9 on Monday Night Football under head coach Jay Gruden and at 0-3 on the season, hold the worst record in the NFC. 

Also worth noting: the Redskins have lost seven straight home games on Monday Night Football, which is the second-longest streak in the show’s lengthy history. 

Sadly, they also own the longest streak, having lost 10 straight home Monday Night Football games between 1998-2010. 

So yes, the Washington Redskins are officially the two worst teams at home in Monday Night Football history and are an unfathomable 1-17 in their last 18 home games on Monday Night Football.
