Week 5 Preview: Redskins vs Falcons

Posted By Mercedes Green On Oct 5 2012 @ 9:32 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

The Washington Redskins face off against the 4-0 Atlanta Falcons this Sunday at 1PM.  Falcons QB Matt Ryan has 11 TDs so far in only 4 weeks, 102/147 for 1162 yards.  Impressive.  What’s more impressive?  Mr. Robert Griffin III.  He’s not only thrown 4 TDs, but has 4 of his own rushing, 86/124 for 1070 yards AND was just chosen as the Rookie of the Month.  He’s proven his toughness and maturity after only 1 month.  Even though the Redskins’ pass defense is so bad, the Redskins have the #2 rushing offense against the Falcon’s #29 rush defense (which includes the # 5 RB in the league Alfred Morris).

S Brandon Meriweather is out, CB Cedric Griffin is out.  The defense is hurting, but Captain Awesomeness London Fletcher is not concerned.  “I think we’ve done some good things.  There are a lot of things we need to improve on,” Fletcher said.  “We’re 2-2 through the first quarter of the season.  Would we love to be 3-1, 4-0? Yes. We feel good about our football team.”

We shall see!  HTTR!
