Redskins three games against the Falcons in the third week of the preseason
Since the Washington Redskins went to Atlanta to take over the Falcons in the third week of the preseason, there are a lot of players on both teams tonight. Both Matt Ryan and Case Keenum participated in most of the first half of the game, and Redskins seemed to get rid of some rust and started moving the ball slightly on the offensive end.
In the end, the Redskins won the first victory of the preseason with 19-7. Here are our three main points about the game.
In the 377-day game, Washington fans first saw Derrius Guice on the court in the first lineup and took a real action. His number was summoned in the first game, and he took the ball 7 yards from the middle. After a few games, he jumped on the perimeter, a stiff guard, cut into the field and placed his shoulders on the defenders on the sidelines. This game gave the Redskins a 9-yard harvest and a heart of hope and confidence.
Entering his rookie season, Guice is preparing for a lot of hype and preparing for the breakthrough season for the Redskin national team. The torn ACL ended those ROY dreams, but since then his first attempt at the preseason will definitely rekindle Washington’s expectations. Guice played a game throughout the first half, completing 44 yards in 11 attacks, including a touchdown that was recalled for possession.
He looks durable and fast, and he looks like the future character of the Redskins.
Many people gave the Redskins grief during this offseason when they signed veteran security, Langdon Collins, to sign a six-year, $84 million contract. So far, in the preseason, he proved to be worth a heavy price.
On Thursday night, Collins played for the Washington team in the first half. He often participated in large-scale competitions, flew around to tackle the ball and jumped on some passing routes. Collins ended the game with 5 steals and 1 pass.
The Redskins’ defense entered the 2019 season, with some heavy expectations, and Collins was a very important reason. If he continues to maintain this level throughout the season, then $84 million will start to look like a bargain in Washington.
Both Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins performed well on Thursday night, but they didn’t do anything special, which means that QB games are unlikely to be shaken in any direction. By default, Keenum should be named QB1 to enter the regular season.
Keenum played well against the Falcons in the first half, 14 yards, 9 shots and 100 yards, turnover mistakes. There was a broken game in turnover, and Keenum couldn’t see a defender slipping behind him and hitting the ball. His performance is generally mediocre, but enough to make the Redskins step on the water.
Haskins is roughly the same. He started playing for the Washington team in the second half and opened two red zones in the third quarter, although both opportunities occurred after the Falcons made two consecutive turnovers. On the first trip to 20, Samaje Perine ran to the middle of the touchdown, and after Haskins couldn’t convert the 3rd goal and the 5th conceded catcher Steven Sims was out, the Redskins made the second round. Ball route.
In the end, Haskins got 74 yards, zero touchdown and zero turnover with 7 of 13 shots. He played very well, but he still needs a lot of work. I hope that Washington will allow him to work on the sidelines after the start of the regular season.
