  • Despite their low record, Washington has one of the better offensive ranking; The Redskins are ranked 5th in total offense based on yards (389.4 YPG), though turnovers are the main issue for this offense (turnover ratio: -9)
  • High Ranking comes mainly from the passing offense as they are ranked 4th in pass yards per game (290 YPG)
  • Redskins rush offense continue to struggle averaging 99.4 rushing yards per game
  • The team is now facing an average defense coming from the Dallas Cowboys

Defensive Expectations:

  • Biggest challenge: Stopping the #1 rusher in the NFL, Demarco Murray (913 yards in seven games)
  • Redskins defense is also consider average, though ranked 7th in pass defense, allowing only 218.9 YPG

Defensive Expectations:

  • Defense faces a third back-up quarterback (Colt McCoy)
  • Expect Defense to give much pressure to Redskins quarterback, especially at home on Primetime
  • Although the Cowboys have an average defense (ranked 14th in total yards allowed), they should have no problem dealing with the Washington offense as they are prone to turnovers.
