Week 4 Redskins Recap

FINAL SCORE

 Washington 24 Oakland 14

The Washington Redskins picked up their first win of the season against the Oakland Raiders.

Stat of the Day: The Redskins had seven sacks for the first time since 2011 against the St. Louis Rams.

Player of the Game: Barry Cofield had two sacks and a fumble recovery

TURNING POINT: Rookie cornerback, David Amerson had a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown, which kept Washington in the game early.

The Good:

1. The defense- Washington’s defense had seven sacks, two turnovers, and a defensive touchdown.

2. Leonard Hankerson- Hankerson has separated himself as the second best receiver on the roster, catching four passes for 49 yards.

3. Raider injuries- Washington benefited from McFadden and Pryor being hurt.

The Bad:

1. The offensive line- The Redskins only averaged 3.8 yards per carry and while only sacked one time, RG3 was running for his life all day.

2. Kyle Shanahan- The offensive play calling was vanilla and predictable.

3. Missed tackles- At one point the Fox broadcast put up a stat saying the Redskins led the league in missed tackles.

Grades:

Defense- A-

I would have given the defense an A+ if it weren’t for the missed tackles. This was their best performance of the year, holding Oakland to one touchdown.

Special Teams- F

You can’t allow punts to be blocked for a touchdown. The Redskins were able to dodge a bullet but mistakes like that will get you beat nine times out of ten. 

Offense- C-

The Redskins offense was stymied all day. Two second half touchdowns by Pierre Garcon and Roy Helu helped bring this grade up to a C-

Who’s next: The Redskins (1-3) have a bye week and then travel to play the Dallas Cowboys (2-2).
