The Washington Redskins and Atlanta Falcons will square off today in what I consider to be the “Bust bowl.” Both teams had high expectations entering the season, and neither squad lived up to the Hype. The Falcons have suffered numerous injuries throughout their campaign, and one cannot put 100% of the blame on quarterback Matt Ryan.
On the other hand, the Redskins will be enduring a changing of the guard, as Kirk Cousins will assume the role of starting quarterback. This will be Cousins’ first game as the first string quarterback, and it should be interesting to see how offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has prepared the former Michigan State Spartan for today’s contest. Redskins fans can expect to see a heavy dose of Alfred Morris in attempt to relieve some of the heavy pressure Cousins expects to face. The defense has proved unable to make any relevant stops, so it would not surprise many if the Falcons scored at will. Washington, however, will struggle both offensively and defensively, falling by a 24-17 score.
