Inside the Huddle: Where the Redskins stand against the Saints


LET’S GET MORE ON THE SAINTS AS BRIAN PARSONS TAKES US INSIDE THE HUDDLE. BRIAN: TIME TO GO INSIDE THE HUDDLE. NINE GAMES INTO THE SEASON, THE REDSKINS HAVE FACED THE TOUGHEST SCHEDULE IN THE NFL, THEIR OPPONENTS A COMBINED 52-30. IT DOES NOT GET ANY EASIER SUNDAY AGAINST NFC SOUTH LEADERS NEW ORLEANS. THE REDSKINS CAN FORGET ABOUT WINNING THE NFC EAST. THEY’VE BEEN SWEPT BY THE EAGLES, LOSS TO DALLAS, AND THEY NEED TO STRING TOGETHER SOME WINS. THE NFC WILD-CARD RACE IS VERY CROWDED. SOME GOOD TEAMS ARE GOING TO BE ON THE OUTSIDE. AS FOR SUNDAY’S GAME, THE SAINTS ARE THE HOTTEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE. DREW BREES AND COMPANY HAVE RATTLED OFF SEVEN STRAIGHT WINS. THEY GAVE UP AN AVERAGE OF 32 POINTS A GAME IN THEIR LOSSES, BUT THE DEFENSE HAS BOUNCED BACK IN A BIG WAY, HOLDING OPPONENTS TO 14 POINTS PER GAME. THEM EVERYTHING I HAVE. IT IS WORKING. BRIAN: FOLLOWING THE SAINTS GAME, THERE IS RELIEF ON THE SCHEDULE FOR THE REDSKINS. SIX GAMES REMAINING AND ONLY ONE OPPONENT HAS A WINNING RECORD, THE COWBOYS. THE GIANTS, BRONCOS, CARDINALS, AND CHARGERS ALL BELOW .500. THE SAINTS ARE FAVORED BY 7.5 POINTS AT THE SUPER DOME. I SAY THE SAINTS BATTLE, BUT COME UP SHORT. IN 2005, THE REDSKINS WERE 5-6, WON OUT, AND MADE THE PLAYOFFS. IN 2007, THEY WERE 5-7, W ON OUT, MADE THE PLAYOFFS. IN 2015, THEY WERE 5-7, AND MADE THE PLAYOFFS. THERE IS STILL HOPE.
