If the fan prediction holds correct, then the Washington Redskins will score at least 20 points in the eighth straight game today. It would be the longest streak for the burgundy and gold since 1998.
The Raiders along with a few other franchises such as the Pittsburgh Steelers embodied the smash mouth style of play well past its “prime” in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
In 12 games against one another, the Raiders have held the Redskins to 21 points or less seven times.
While Alfred Morris said earlier this week he could care less if he got one carry or 30—I think most Redskins fans would prefer something closer to 30—his play alone could change the fortunes of an offense that has woefully disappointed in the first half each week. His 30-yard touchdown last week is the only offensive touchdown in the first half this season.
Passing-wise, regardless of situation, Griffin III has had the best three-game stretch of his young career in terms of statistics. His play however, has also improved each week and he is on the cusp of unleashing the same heroics of last season when the team exceeded low expectations by a mile. Can he and Pierre Garcon continue their obvious connection this afternoon?
Will DeAngelo Hall have any impact in the scoring once again? He’s opened up scoring in each of the team’s two home games, but nothing would mean more than intercepting the team that once employed him.
This will be his first appearance in Oakland since a very brief and tumultuous stint there. Knowing D-Hall, he’ll have all the motivation in that fact alone.
We’ll soon find out if the offense will make you all look like you have a future in the palm reading business.
