Although the San Diego Chargers have a 4-3 record, if not for some last second blunders and mental mistakes, the Bolts could have a record closer to 6-1 as two of their three loses came on last second drives by a combined six points.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the Washington Redskins who have struggled out of the gate this season, posting a sub-par 2-5 record. Thankfully though, things are starting to look up as Robert Griffin III is looking more and more like the Pro Bowl talent that he was prior to his injury. It’s been a work in progress through the seasons first eight weeks, but that was to be expected. Hopefully for the Redskins faithful, it’s just a matter of time before RGIII is back to making opposing defenses look silly.
He’ll have a shot this weekend as the Redskins host the San Diego Chargers, who’ve been less than impressive against the pass. San Diego ranks 22nd overall in pass defense and ranks near the bottom as they allow nearly eight yards per completion. Of course, for all of their defensive woes, their offense has been clicking on all cylinders as they’re the fourth in the league in yards per game.
Of course, the Washington Redskins haven’t exactly been slouches on offense either, so it’s possible we’ll see a bit of a shootout between the two sub-par defensive teams.
