The 0-2 struggling Redskins meet the 1-1 Lions at home on Sunday at 1PM. The Redskins Total D is in absolute last in the NFL. They’re #10 in pass D and #1 rushing. Even with the struggles that RG3 has had in the first half of the last 2 games they are #6 in total offense, #8 in passing and #19 in rushing. It’s clear to anyone that the Redskins can win if that #19 rushing rank moves up and quick.
The other hurdle for the Redskins is with kicking as Kai Forbath is still injured and their replacement kicker did not help at all last week.
All I can say is keep the faith as it’s still early but no team has ever gone 0-3 and won a superbowl. Just saying!

Written by Mercedes Green
I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
