The Detroit Lions continue their tour of the NFC East this week with a visit to tangle with the Washington Redskins. For Detroit, it’s the first time since 2013 the team has played against the Redskins on the road in the regular season, and prior to that moment, it wasn’t a place the team had success.

Plenty of Detroit’s historical problems winning in Washington D.C. ended on that day, but the danger still exists for a let down against a Redskins team which is facing down a serious mutiny from their fanbase amid a tough season on the field. Things haven’t gone great in Washington, so seemingly, the Lions could look at this as the week to get things on track for their team for a push in the second half.

Redskins Player To Watch: Dwayne Haskins, QB

The rookie out of Ohio State has been thrust into the spotlight as the team’s starting quarterback, and thus far, it hasn’t gone great for Haskins. It seems as if he is completely alone on the field in terms of caring about what happens in between the lines. That doesn’t change the talent he is operating with and his ability to make plenty of plays and plenty of throws on the field. The Lions will have to prevent him from gaining any shred of confidence against a defense that has been abysmal over the past few months.


Redskins Key Personnel Group: Defensive Line

On the defensive side of the ball, the Redskins might not have much talent, but they have enough up front to frustrate the Lions and bog down their offense. Ryan Kerrigan is a player capable of pressuring the pocket along with rookie rush linebacker Montez Sweat and Jonathan Allan. In the middle, defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis has piled up 4.5 sacks. Getting pressure on the quarterback is not an issue for this group, and the Lions will need to make sure Jeff Driskel has the time to survey the field and make throws. This group has not stopped playing hard even in spite of the frustrating nature of Washington’s season.


Redskins Biggest Name Missing: Paul Richardson Jr., WR

The Redskins lost Richardson last week with a hamstring injury and that was tough news for Washington given he has put up 239 yards and 2 touchdowns this season for the offense. Detroit’s defense has been bad, so any help the Redskins can get for their group to put up points would be big. If Richardson could not go, that would be bad news for the Redskins and good news for the Lions.


Can They Defend

No. Any team that allows the New York Jets to come to down and drop a 34 point bomb does not qualify as a team that has a consistent defense. The numbers aren’t that bad for the Redskins considering they only allow 235.6 passing yards a game and 1,339 rushing yards a game. As a whole, though, the Redskins are merely a middle of the pack defense. They allow 369.5 yards per game. The Lions offense is dinged up, but they can manage to move the ball against this defense.


Headset Heads Up

Bill Callahan has been plenty of places before, but until he was thrust into the interim role with Washington, he had not been coaching NFL football as a boss since 2003, when he was leading the Oakland Raiders. Since, Callahan has mostly served as an offensive position coach around the league, and that’s exactly what he was doing with the Redskins until he was thrust back into the league as a boss.

Not going to lie, never thought I would see the day where Jon Gruden and Bill Callahan were both once again active head coaches in the NFL at the same time.

I believe both teams leadership wants them to lose. I’m sure the players want to do well. But this is an ugly game.

And many fans want a win. The Detroit Lion players/coaches should be reminded that the Washington Racists and their fans all circled this game as an easy win. Maybe the furious Lions defense will show up? Yeah, I didn't think so.

He certainly doesn't look like the second coming of Gronk like we were told. ****, he doesn't even look like the second coming of David Sloan. This season is now a lost cause, but the boo birds are going to be out in full force next year the minute Hockenson does something bad or starts looking like he isn't going to live up to the #8 pick.

He is a tight end they often take more than  year.

**** look at Gronk's rookie stats.

His first season has been a bust based on how high he was drafted.   He’s still got a chance to be very good but seeing that he’s a Lion that most likely will never happen.

Looks like we get preseason football the rest of the season.

Maybe we can draft a coach with the next first round pick.

 

You always draft the worst position on the current roster in the following first round, right?

I want them to lose now.  I want them to lose the next two games and fire the Patriot Way guys.   

 

I don't know if Jeff Driskell will finish this game.   They can't protect him at all.
