Week/PeriodRankRecordComments
Initial160-0In a division where they were expected, by most, to finish in last place, Washington won the NFC East with strong quarterback play from full-time starter Kirk Cousins. Designated with the franchise tag, Cousins is under contract for at least one more season provided a long-term deal isn't reached prior to the July 15th cutoff. Not only did Cousins lead the NFL in completion percentage (69.8), he posted a 23:3 TD-to-INT ratio over his final 10 games of the regular season.
Post-Draft160-0Washington had only three top-150 picks in the NFL Draft and they got value with each of them: Josh Doctson (Round 1), Su'a Cravens (Round 2) and Kendall Fuller (Round 3).
Week 1170-0Preseason win projection: 8-8
Week 2220-1In Washington's MNF loss, they ran the ball only 12 times (a league-low 21.82 percent of their plays). Game flow obviously influenced that, but one of the concerns for Washington's offense this season will be their effectiveness (or lack therof) running the ball.
Week 3260-2Through two games, Washington has a league-high pass-play percentage (75.83 percent). And several offensive players have reportedly complained about quarterback Kirk Cousins.
