Observations from Washington's loss to the the Cowboys via the Twitter account of SI NFL writer Andy Benoit.
When the Washington Redskins fell to 0-2 on Sunday it was bad. Having it come against the Dallas Cowboys made it worse. Friend of Breaking Burgundy, Sports Illustrated's Andy Benoit, spent Tuesday morning breaking down the game over Twitter. Here are the 10 most noteworthy observations from Benoit concerning the Redskins.
1. Quarterback Kirk Cousins has been having a rough go about it lately. Washington has only converted three of their ten red zone visits into touchdowns in 2016.
But it wasn't all bad...
2. As was clear in real time, Benoit notes issues and confusion in pass coverage all game.
3. Jordan Reed may be listed as a tight end, but the rest of the league might start treating him for what he really is.
4. It finally happened. Josh Norman began trailing No. 1 receivers and his effectiveness was impressive because it was not practiced much prior to the Cowboys game.
5. The coulda shoulda yet successful Josh Doctson long play
6. Was Bashaud Breeland expecting help from the safety?
7. One positive out of the loss was the pass rushing from Trent Murphy.
8. Next to Moses, guard Brandon Scherff is a "football player".
9. Don't say the Redskins pass rush never helped the secondary. It might not happen as often as it should, but it occurs from time to time.
10. Ziggy Hood has come a long was since signing soon after the 2015 season. Washington really needs him to fill the vacant nose tackle position now.
