Through the first three games of the 2012 NFL season, your Washington Redskins have the No. 1-scoring offense in the entire league.
Credit certainly goes to the coaching staff for finding ways to utilize the offensive players’ talents — starting with rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III — and for putting points on the scoreboard.
Though the defense hasn’t yet reached the level of consistency it would like and become a top-10 NFL unit, there’s definitely people taking notice of the improved Redskins’ offense attack.
In his weekly power rankings article, NFL.com Around The League editor Gregg Rosenthal this week ranked the NFL’s offenses, and he put the Redskins at the “quietly dangerous” level.
“Quietly dangerous” is the third-highest ranking Rosenthal gives the various offenses. Here’s where the entire league falls, according to Rosenthal:
“Top Shelf:” Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants
“Should Get Better:” Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints
“Quietly Dangerous:” San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals
“Not Playing To Potential:” Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles
“Quarterbacks Running For Life:” Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys
“Middle Of The Pack:” Denver Broncos, San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills
“Mediocre:” Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans
“Bottom Shelf:” Tampa Bay Buccaneers*, Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns
* The Redskins travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers on Sunday. The Buccaneers have the league’s worst-rated offense.
