FOX Sports - NFL - Offenses shine in Washington
When the Washington Redskins and Jacksonville Jaguars got together last Sunday, most people assumed that a defensive struggle would ensue.
The Redskins for the past several years had been a dominant defense that was supported by an average-at-best offense. Instead, a shootout broke out featuring the proficient offense Washington envisioned when they hired Al Saunders. The Jaguars kept up by going to the air and taking advantage of a suspect Washington pass defense. In the end, one big play was enough to get Washington back into the playoff discussion and slow down the Jacksonville bandwagon.
The Redskins' return to the playoffs last year following years of mediocre play was greeted in some circles as a fluke. The team struggled to score points in the postseason, totaling 27 in two games. Quarterback Mark Brunell, a disaster in 2004, looked old and tired against good defenses in the playoffs last season.
Mods, please move to 'News Wire' should the need arise.
