Last week: 14 (-10)
Robert Griffin is the real deal, but whatever little help he had to begin with is getting hurt. Brian Orakpo’s and Adam Carriker’s absence on defense has led to them getting torched defensively by the Rams and the Bengals in the last two games and Trent Williams’ and Pierre Garcon’s injuries have left Griffin running for his life and without his top receiver. The Redskins rank 31st in yards per play differential. Garcon and Williams will probably be back this week, but the defensive guys are done for the year. They’ll win some shoot outs, but in a tough NFC, they’re not a real playoff contender. Redskin fans should just be happy that their big gamble seems to have paid off and that they finally seem to have the quarterback position solved for what’s the first time in seemingly forever.

According to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in D.C., Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon (foot) was limited in today’s practice along with safety Brandon Meriweather (knee), Evan Royster (knee) and Brandon Banks (hip).
