WT - Big plays continue to burn Redskins
When the Washington Redskins were playing top-shelf defense in 2004, they waited all year for the offense to produce. Now that the offense has a quarterback and a receiver in the NFL's top 10, the defense has gone back.
"Last year the media and the fans kept saying if the offense gave us some points ..." safety Ryan Clark said. "Well, the offense is doing its job. We've got to find a way to pick it up."
After shutting down hapless Chicago in the opener -- the Bears' only points came after a special-teams mistake gave them the ball on Washington's 23-yard line -- the defense has been torched for big plays or yielded long drives in each game.
