falcndave Posted October 8, 2015 Share Posted October 8, 2015 Washing's defense is ranked 2nd in total rushing yards allowed per game. That sounds impressive on its surface. However, here are their opponent's offensive rushing rankings (total yards/gm)Mia--31st (69 y/gm) Stl--23rd (94 y/gm) NYG--24th (93 y/gm) PHI--30th (70 y/gm)With a small sample size, you can argue that they are 25% of the reason that those numbers are so low. However, those teams are not running much in general. Another factor is that Washington leads the league in time of possession (we are 2nd), so their defense may not be seeing a high play count (I haven't checked it).I'm not not going to completely sell that they are a good rushing defense. However, I am selling on the notion that they will shut our run down completely. We are the 13th ranked rushing offense. They haven't seen anything close to that yet. We may not light them up, but I think we can do enough to keep our play action passing game effective. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
