Injuries, mental mistakes prove costly as Redskins fall to Falcons

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.
