Redskins Lions Preview

Posted By Mercedes Green On Oct 29 2010 @ 10:22 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

After the Redskins ended the Lions’ losing streak last year, it’s time to put that stat to bed.   The Redskins offense is looking to redeem itself after a messy showing last week against the Bears and their D is looking to keep their momentum up.

 By looking at numbers alone, the Redskins are rated lower than the Lions, but the Skins are #6 in the NFC at 4-3 and the Lions at #14  just above Dallas (ha ha) at 1-5.  The Redskins have defeated some very tough teams (although some lucky wins) and the Lions have come close to wins against some tough teams.  So is it just luck for the Redskins?

Donovan McNabb has been struggling badly over the last couple of weeks, but one thing he has going for him is that he has his highest passer rating against the Lions than any other team.  Albert Haynesworth has sparked after being switched from nose tackle in the 3-4 defense to a pass-rusher, which helped him last week getting him his first sack of the season.  This defense will improve, but hopefully it won’t spark at the end of the season.
