Neil Dutton reviews Washington’s 2018 season, outlines players the team could lose to free agency and offers his thoughts on potential reinforcements the team should look to sign.
2018 IN SUMMARY
Heading into a Week 11 home game against the Houston Texans, Washington was 6-3 and very much in the hunt for the NFC East title. After a 23-21 loss in a game that saw them lose quarterback Alex Smith to a horrific broken leg, they would go on to win just one more game all season. Their 7-9 record secured the third spot in the division for a third straight season, finishing behind the Cowboys and Eagles. It also marked their third straight season without a playoff berth.
While Washington was around the middle of the pack in terms of points allowed (359), only three teams scored fewer points than their 281. This was their lowest tally since 2011.
