Kyle Shanahan’s unit had the best outing of the season from a statistical standpoint last Thursday.
With Robert Griffin III tossing three early touchdown passes, Alfred Morris eclipsing the 100-yard mark and Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed shredding one-on-one coverage, the offense was operating at near-full production.
However, in a somewhat similar situation to the Broncos game just 11 days prior, the offense’s brakes halted abruptly.
The turbo offense was effective on the last drive of the game, but on 2nd-and-goal, Jordan Reed couldn’t secure a ball in traffic.On 3rd-and-goal, the pass to Pierre Garcon was just inches out of reach. With the game on the line, Griffin III hit Santana Moss in the corner of the end zone. But with only one foot inbounds, the Redskins comeback attempt fell short.
After the first and last drive of the game stalled inside the five-yard line, a myriad of questions began to pop up.
Playing whack-a-mole, Shanahan hit each question of his afternoon press conference right on the head starting with scoring against a vastly improved Philly defense.
