The Atlanta Falcons expected to be competing for a NFC Championship and possibly a Super Bowl this season. It hasn’t gotten the way they had planned and they’re looking for their fourth win of the season against the Washington Redskins.
“It’s tough on everybody,” offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said. “Nobody has higher expectations for the Falcons than the players and the coaches do. We haven’t lived up to expectations. We haven’t played as well as we’re capable of on offense.”
The Redskins are also looking for their fourth win of the season. They also made the decision to start Kirk Cousins at quarterback and shut Robert Griffin III down for the season.
“These are not the circumstances you necessarily want to be in when you start the season, but good or bad I got to be ready to go,” Cousins said. “I can’t control a lot of things going on, but I can control my preparation and I can control how I lead this team this weekend.”
