Redskins Week 2 Preview

Posted By Mercedes Green On Sep 16 2011 @ 8:56 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

The Washington Redskins host the Arizona Cardinals in their second home game of the season.  Much focus will be on Rex Grossman, to see if he can continue his role as the starting QB, the Redskins’ defense, to see if last week was not a fluke and Tim Hightower, formerly of the Arizona Cardinals in how he can play against his former teammates.

Looking at the offense from last week of these 2 teams could not look any more similar.  Rex Grossman and Kevin Kolb were within 4 yards total of each other, 2 TDs a piece and within under 5% difference in pass completions.  On rushing, Tim Hightower and Beanie Wells were within 18 yards apart and 1 TD a piece.  On Receiving, Fred Davis and Early Doucet both had 105 yards a piece but Doucet scored a TD.

What is going to determine this game is in pass defense for the Redskins.  If they can continue their stride from last week, this should allow the Redskins more opportunities to score.  Keep the Cardinals from scoring and forcing running.
