Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
The Redskins are exploitable across the roster, but they look especially vulnerable against the pass.
The Redskins are amazingly No. 1 in pass defense against opposing No. 1 wide receivers (per Football Outsiders’ DVOA), but if they’re without Josh Norman (questionable), they’ll be at a significant disadvantage given their utter lack of corner depth — and “utter lack” is putting it kindly. They’re No. 32 in pass defense against No. 2 receivers and No. 28 against supplementary receivers.
If the primary strength of their pass defense is gone, all they’re left with is total weakness.
