Breaking news: The Redskins can't run the ball. At all.
Just to reinforce this notion, here are Washington's run yardage totals over the last four games: 51, 34, 50, 37.
That leads to more pass attempts. Over that same stretch, Kirk Cousins has thrown the ball 32, 43, 40 and 40 times. That's not ideal for the makeup of the team and certainly not the one-dimensional approach desired by coach Jay Gruden.
The real scary part? It's hard seeing how they can fix the problem anytime soon. Therefore, while the seven drops might technically be the most frustrating part of the 27-10 loss at New England, Washington only had eight drops over the season entering Sunday. That makes all those muffs a blip for now. The lack of successful running? That's a trend and not a friendly kind.
